Modelland - Tyra Banks I tried. I really tried giving Tyra the benefit of the doubt. I read the first 60 pages and it was just to poorly written to continue. It was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory meets Cinderella in a dystopian mess. It was written by someone who thinks they know what teens want, but really has no clue. She probably read some YA books like The Hunger Games, saw there was a bit of a formula, grabbed some ideas from some classics and then just started writing. Modelland was just outrageously bad.
