    DescriptionModelland - the FIERCE NEW NOVEL BY TYRA BANKS--IS OUT! No one gets in without being asked. And with her untamable hair, large forehead, and gawky body, Tookie De La Creme isn't expecting an invitation. Modelland--the exclusive, mysterious place on top of the mountain--never dares to make an appearance in her dreams. But someone has plans for Tookie. Before she can blink her mismatched eyes, Tookie finds herself in the very place every girl in the world obsesses about. And three unlikely girls have joined her. Only seven extraordinary young women become Intoxibellas each year. Famous. Worshipped. Magical. What happens to those who don't make it? Well, no one really speaks of that. Some things are better left unsaid. Thrown into a world where she doesn't seem to belong, Tookie glimpses a future that could be hers--if she survives the beastly Catwalk Corridor and terrifying Thigh-High Boot Camp. Along the way, she learns all about friendship, courage, laughter and what it feels like to start to believe in yourself. When you enter the fantastical world of Modelland, you'll see that Tookie was inspired by Tyra's life as a supermodel. All those crazy and wild adventures Tookie has with her friends? Some of them were ripped straight from the headlines of Tyra's life! Tyra knows all about beauty and fashion and fierceness, and she shares everything here in MODELLAND. It's fun, zany, and 100 bazillion-percent Tyra. You don't want to miss Tyra's amazing new novel!

    Author Information
    Tyra Banks was fifteen years old when she started modeling, the same age as Modelland's Tookie De La Creme. After establishing a supermodel career she could never have dreamed of, Tyra tackled the world of television, creating the hit show America's Next Top Model, which is seen in over 170 countries, and her two-time Emmy-award-winning talk show, The Tyra Show, to become the super businesswoman she always wanted to be. Tyra is a leading voice in empowering girls and is dedicated to expanding the definition of beauty worldwide. Tyra invested five years in conceiving and writing Modelland, her first book of fiction. Her lifelong love of reading and storytelling is deeply embedded in every page. She was born in Los Angeles and lives in New York City.
