Tyra Banks fantasy ficiton novel for young adults, “Modelland,” debuted in the No. 2 spot on the New York Times Best Seller List. The book was released on Sept. 13. It is about a 15-year-old girl whose dream is to be a model. Her dreams become a reality when she receives an invitation to Modelland, but she quickly discovers that it is not at all what she expected it to be.
“Modelland” is the first novel in a three-part book series. There are talks that the series will be turned into a movie, according to loop21.com. I have a feeling it would be a hit with many teen girls.
Banks has made quite a name for herself since her days of being a Victoria Secrets model. She developed her own production company, Bankable Productions, had her own talk show and continues to give aspiring models a chance at fame with her hit creation, “America’s Next Top Model.” We can’t foget about her days as an actress on, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and her role as Deja in “Higer Learning.” She also created the TZONE foundation. It empowers girls and young women to live their dreams. Now the Harvard Business school attendee can add “Best Selling Author” to her resume.
