Kendall and Kylie Jenner “Wrote” a Book, Apparently

It really kinda cracks me up that anyone is supposed to believe that Kendall and Kylie Jenner – teenagers who are more concerned with modeling and Instagram selfies than pretty much anything else in life – got together and sat down to write a Young Adult novel. However, we are indeed supposed to believe that, as the two are releasing Rebels: City of Indra. It’s a dystopian story that THEY DEFINITELY DID NOT WRITE that apparently centers on “two super-powered girls, Lex and Livia, who embark on a journey together, not realizing their biggest danger might be each other”. Yes, that sounds right up their alley!

From E! Online:

“Kylie and I love the creative challenge and are thrilled to have been given the opportunity to share this story,” Kendall said, while her sister added, “We can’t wait to share these characters and the world we created with readers everywhere. We are so excited!”

Karen Hunter, publisher of Karen Hunter Publishing, adds, “The story that Kendall and Kylie crafted is a thrill ride—one that their fans and fans of this genre won’t be able to put down.”

This piece of shit is coming out on June 6 – though actually, I’m probably being a bit hasty on my judgments. Given that this will have been ghostwritten, I bet it’ll actually be pretty good. I’m all about dystopian YA, but I think the fact that these two have been able to pay their way to calling themselves “authors” when I guarantee you they did nothing but sign a contract for the actual writer to execute this story kinda makes me want to stay far, far away.

  • Are you sure it wasn’t Kendall and Kylie Jenner read a book.
    The premise sounds like the rule Kris runs their family by. … Your family comes first but if ya can get ahead by fuck each other over you better do it or you’ll have to answer to Pimp Mamma.

  • This sums up my feelings:

    So the girl who can’t read, and her sister, the one who complained that she kept failing in school, have written a book?

    Kendall and Kylie Jenner are the names above the title on the new novel “Rebels: City of Indra,” though the youngest members of the Kardashian clan didn’t write it by all themselves (if they even wrote any of it).

    An inside page acknowledges that their manager, Elizabeth Killmond-Roman, worked on the book. And she brought in a co-writer, Maya Sloan, who has a few young adult titles under her belt.

    Four people to write one YA novel with a shopworn plot? Well, we are talking about the Jenners.

    As in 18-year-old Kendall Jenner — who flubbed an introduction at the Billboard Music Awards this month and used dumb chic to explain it away: “I’m the worst reader ever.”

    And her 16-year-old sister, Kylie, is the one who convinced her mother Kris Jenner to homeschool them because all her social engagements put her woefully behind in school.

    “It’s not fun to fail,” she famously wailed.

    No, but it’s more entertaining than reading “Rebels: City of Indra.”
    Like every other teen novel since “The Hunger Games” and “Divergent,” it’s set in the dystopian future, though the word itself isn’t used because, face it, could either Jenner spell it?

    The story begins after a Great Catastrophe — likely a war, but possibly fat Rob bolting from his sister’s wedding this past weekend. When you’re “Keeping up With the Kardashians,” that’s a pretty great catastrophe.

    “Rebel” is the story of two girls, orphans Livia and Lex who live in the new colony of Indra, but in very different worlds. (Orphans, huh? On some days, that must be Kylie and Kendall’s own fantasy.)

    Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s book is set in a dystopian world called Indra. Wait, how do you spell “dystopian”?

    Indra is stratified — just like L.A. Livia lives on a paradise island that floats above the city (think Beverly Hills but with better architecture). Lex, poor thing, remains in an orphanage “down below” (kind of like the Valley).

    Indra is great if you’re rich, but poor people are denied cosmetic surgery (no, seriously, that’s the book’s Jenner-esque take on deprivation). And in another only-in-Karadashian-world twist, Livia’s father is a local Indra hero because he invented birth control.

    Consider: a book that exalts plastic surgery and birth control. It makes sense. After all, it’s how the Kardashians have survived into the 21st century with their faces and fortune intact.

    Back to the story: Livia is being raised to be a Proper Young Woman and expected to make her debut at the Emergence Ball, where she will find her mate. Meanwhile, Lex is a scrappy young thing who gets selected for training in a Special Ops force to fight the rebels.

    The two seem destined never to meet, but there’s this guy, a cutie named Kane. He’s on the Special Ops force with Lex but gets sent off on a secret mission: to murder Livia at the ball.

    But he fails and is taken prisoner (see? It’s no fun to fail!). In a ridiculous plot manipulation made possible only by the forces of terrible writing, Livia and Lex unite to rescue him.

    As the novel mercifully comes to an end, Lex and Livia have joined the rebels, which is an unfortunate set up for a sequel.

    As stirring climaxes go, we’ll stick to Kim’s sex tape.
