After I read a sample of Tyra Banks‘ new novel Modelland a few weeks ago, I thought it sounded like a fashion-themed ripoff of The Hunger Games. However, I got my hands on a copy of the full text, which comes out on September 13, and think there’s a lot more going on that just one plotline that reminds me of Suzanne Collins‘ hugely successful trilogy. The book is also a gateway into the mind of Tyra herself, and there’s a lot to be gleaned from peeking into her – or her ghostwriter’s – psyche. But what did it teach me about being a model?
