No one gets in without being asked. And with her untamable hair, large forehead, and gawky body, Tookie De La Crème 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!

This book is weird. I picked it up because I wanted to see what a book written by Tyra Banks would sound like. It's dystopian (and there's a lot of terms Tyra uses in ANTM included), but ultimately, very good. I was highly surprised.

I ordered this book, I thought it was okay. But a lot of things bugged me about this book. For one a lot of words had been spelled differently and it bothered me a little. Like Dahling, its Darling! But other then that it was a pretty okay read.

A pretty good book that you must finish to enjoy. It was very "fantasy". I enjoyed it!
