Hey gang. Kendall (18) and Kylie (16) have written a novel together. The Kardashian/Jenner Dynasty’s middle generation is aware that they are beautiful and famous because their family is famous for being famous, but they still wanted to do something “creatively challenging.” This is why they wrote a dystopian YA novel called Rebels: City of Indra, The Story of Lex and Livia. It’s about “… two super-powered girls, Lex and Livia, who embark on a journey together, not realizing their biggest danger might be each other.” Sounds like a classic case of heading to Europe for two weeks alone with your best friend, but you find out you guys are just NOT TRAVEL COMPATIBLE and it ruins your friendship. But, bonus, you can also move things with your mind!
The cover is pretty cool, with a single water color eye reflecting a girl being stabbed by a beam of light, but the book’s idea doesn’t feel very original, what with all the Divergents, Hunger Games, and Ender’s Games raining down from the grey dystopian heavens, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love this genre! We shall have to wait a few months to see if Kendall and Kylie have the writing chops it takes to create a bestseller, since the book doesn’t come out until June 3. Fingers crossed?
