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.
