Another day, another young adult novel set in a dystopian society. In the case of Rebels: City of Indra, however, there's a major plot twist: The authors are none other than Kendall and Kylie Jenner, with (ahem) the help of cowriter Maya Sloane. Between this and their mom's Kris Jenner...and All Things Kardashian, the famous family is transforming into the second coming of the Mitfords.

Hitting stores on June 3, the book is described as a "thrilling dystopian story about two super-powered girls, Lex and Livia, who embark on a journey together, not realizing their biggest danger might be each other." Dun dun duuuunh. The just-released cover art features a haunting skyline view and the largest eye shot we've seen since Alexa Chung's style guide came out.
"Kylie and I love the creative challenge and are thrilled to have been given the opportunity to share this story," says Kendall. "We can't wait to share these characters and the world we created with readers everywhere," adds Kylie. "We are so excited!"
There are rumors that the book may be developed into a series. Given Hollywood's obsession with futuristic teen novels, that will no doubt spark a film trilogy, action figures, and the whole shebang. But, hey, if they can get Harry Styles to star, we're down. (E! Online)
