Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner (kind of) wrote a dystopian book, Rebels: City of Indra

Rebels - City of Indra - Kendall and Kylie Jenner

J.K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer, Suzanne Collins… Kendall and Kylie Jenner?

The teenaged Jenner girls are set to release their first young adult book, Rebels: City of Indra: The Story of Lex and Livia, on June 3. Karen Hunter Publishing shared the cover with E! Online yesterday.

“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,” said publisher Karen Hunter, who specializes in working with celebrity authors.

Kendall explained she and Kylie loved the creative challenge of crafting the story. Kylie added, “We can’t wait to share these characters and the world we created with readers everywhere. We are so excited!”

According to the publisher’s website, Rebels: City of Indra “comes from the minds of Kendall and Kylie” — but was executed by novelist Maya Sloan. She’s penned Rich Kids of Instagram and High Before Homeroom.

Maya told XOXO After Dark last summer she enjoys listening to teenagers’ ideas: “I worked with lots of teenagers, both teaching theatre and writing. I just like how they think… Listen to them. Ask them questions and ask what matters to them.”

She added of Kendall and Kylie, “They are teenagers too, with the same feelings and concerns. They just happen to be a little more well-known than most.”

Rebels: City of Indra is set 200 years in the future. The plot revolves around “two super-powered girls, Lex and Livia, who embark on a journey together, not realizing their biggest danger might be each other.”

The Amazon synopsis further explains…

Lex lives down below, close to rock bottom. She grew up in the orphanage, alone, and now is training to be a Special Op so she can finally destroy the rebels with her own hands. She needs no one.

Livia lives miles above everything on a floating island in the city of Indra. She is training too, but for a life that she doesn’t want. She wants to be free, to finally leave her floating island, and to run with her beloved horse until she can’t run any longer.

And then there’s Kane—Lex’s only friend, whom she would walk through fire for. And when she finds that Kane is in danger, she doesn’t hesitate to leave her post and blast her way to the top of Indra to save him. She just needs to get one stubborn, unexpectedly clever airgirl to tell her where he is first.

In this fast-paced, dystopian thriller, Lex and Livia reluctantly team up to save Kane after discovering that they share a mysterious identical mark—not realizing that their biggest danger is in each other. You see, these two girls have a secret, a secret that even they do not know: they are sisters. Twins. And that is forbidden…

Rebels: City of Indra will be available a in hardcover and digital download on June 3. Here are links to order your copy now from amazon:

    What a joke

  • P

    A ghost writer who conceives the concept, writes the story and the Jenner sisters put their names on it…. like any other celebrity book.

    • Marty McFly

      No, a ghost writer is invisible, gets no mention, doesn’t exist, thus the word “ghost”.

      • P

        Well excuse me Mr. Know It All. Same concept. You must be real fun to hang around with.

    • Charles

      Maya Sloan isn’t actually a ghost.
      She’s a real person who deserves credit for her book, regardless of quality.

  • M

    It bothers me so much when celebrities “write” books like this. Sounds like all the Jenner girls did was come up with the characters and maybe a general plot. Maya Sloan’s name should be on the book as author, not them. The only place their name should be is in the forward maybe or dedicated to or something.

    • Marty McFly

      They should be co-authors, or Sloan as author “based on a concept by”. But they didn’t try to pretend the girls wrote it by hiring a ghost writer, and I’m sure the # of zeroes on the cheque made it more than worth Sloan’s while. She *chose* to be involved, no one forced her.

    hopefully, in 200 years, we will have eradicated the afr!kan plague the kartrashianz crave so much now… just nasty

  • Tabitha

    I wonder if it will be as good as Kris’ “memwaahhhh.”

  • twelfthnight

    This might have actually been an interesting book but I’m not touching it because I’m not going to put another cent into the pockets of these people.

  • Karina

    What is depressing is that some people will buy it.

  • Sweet Venom

    So they hired a ghost writer. They didn’t write a book. It’s pretty easy to hash out ideas and have someone else turn it into gold. The hard work is in the actual writing and dedication it takes to finish a full novel. Publishing is wasted on these b*tches.
