Tyra Banks: model, TV celebrity, business woman, and YA Book Writer????

Almost every grown-up (and quite a few children) who watch TV has heard of Tyra Banks. She has the television show called “Tyra”. Well, now Tyra is coming out with a BOOK. Yes you read it right. A book.

She signed a Multi-Book Deal with Delacorte Press.
“Delacorte Press has acquired MODELLAND, the first novel in a three-book series written by international, entertainment, and media icon Tyra Banks… Drawing from an area of expertise she is avidly passionate about, Tyra’s MODELLAND is the story of a teen girl in a make-believe society who finds herself competing for a way of life that’s both hotly desired and woefully out of reach at an academy for Intoxibellas, the most exceptional models known to humankind. As the plot unfolds, readers will uncover lessons that are buried beneath the surface of this magical world.”
