I Read Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s YA Book So You Don’t Have ToBy MailOnline Reporter. They have branched their reality show stardom off into more entrepreneurial endeavors. But Kendall and Kylie Jenner's latest venture hasn't exactly worked out. Scroll down for video. According to data from the Nielsen BookScan obtained by Radar Online , the sci-fi novel has sold a mere 13, copies since its release. In comparison, fellow reality star Lauren Conrad's two novels sold close to , copies in about a year after publication. The dystopian sci-fi novel has not done well despite Kendall, 18, and year-old Kylie promoting it with book signings in New York and Los Angeles and even an appearance on talk show The Talk in June.
Kendall and Kyle Jenner’s ‘Rebels: City of Indra’ Ghostwriter Maya Sloan Speaks Out
Is there no stopping the Kardashian empire? The latest string to the famous family's bow comes in the form of a book, written we'll make that assumption lightly by youngest sisters, Kendall and Kylie. And it seems the pair haven't strayed too far from reality, as the two heroines are also sisters with names of the same letter in true alliterative Kardashian fashion. But we hope that's where the plot similarities end, as the story - set years into the future - reportedly sees the characters embark on an adventure, only to realise that the biggest threat may turn out to be each other. We're not sure this book will be leaving Pulitzer prizes in its trail any time soon one critic has estimated that sister Kim Kardashian's sex tape has more of a plot - ouch but we'll try to be optimistic and hope that its young adult audience enjoy it for what it's worth. And regardless of what we all think, apparently Kendall and Kylie enjoyed the creative challenge of writing it.
It's safe to say no one expected the Jenner sisters' debut book to be the next Great American Novel, but the overwhelmingly bad press has fallen onto the shoulders of not just Kim Kardashian's little half-sisters, but the book's ghostwriter Maya Sloan. In a Los Angeles Times profile, Sloan discussed her work on Rebels and coping with the backlash she has experienced. According to the story, she allowed herself just one day to check out reviews of the novel. But it seems that one day may have been one day too many. Sloan has not one, but two separate MFAs, she teaches beginners writing at NYU, and she's the co-author with another anonymous creator of the upcoming book based on the popular Tumblr Rich Kids of Instagram. It's not her first time ghostwriting, either.

In it, newfound twins Lex and Livia journey to the ends of their world as they know it, the domed city of Indra. Just like in most post-apocalyptic oligarchies, there are a lot of rules. For example: Everyone in Rock Bottom must work to serve the Islanders. Inside the dome, Indrithians have never seen real animals, plants or nature—everything is synthetic, and sometimes, even the people feel manufactured. Plus, the birth of more than one child per couple is strictly prohibited. So in Rebels: City of Indra , when Lex and Livia meet for the first time and discover that they're twins, it's kind of a big deal. It's totally fine.
Kylie spoke about the novel, saying "The fans seem to love it. I think we wanted to make Lex more like me and Livia more like Kendall, and they kind of evolved into their own characters. Publishers Weekly gave a positive review: "Details about the two worlds the girls inhabit are creative, though the plot that emerges after they meet is rather predictable. Even so, abundant action — including a hair-pulling fight, a high-speed chase on flying machines, and an attack by hideous beings known as 'mutations' — provides momentum. Unresolved conflicts set the scene for the next installment. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. John Vario Jr.
