Gag Reflex Alert: Rich Kids Of Instagram — A Novel?

Back in August, eyes around the globe collectively rolled after the Rich Kids Of Instagram-inspired show was announced. Well, get ready to grimace your way into the weekend: The RKOI are striking again, making the jump from yet another screen to — you’ll never guess — a book. Our thoughts instantly went to the coffee-table flipbook category, filled with shots of popped bottles and Ferraris, but it’s quite the contrary.
The people behind the wildly controversial Tumblr are actually penning a novel. That's right, come summer ‘14, what they promise as a “dishy and hilarious tale about the intersecting lives of the world’s most extravagant, unapologetically uber-rich teenagers” will hit shelves. Could this be the first of a RKOI series? Let's hope not. The book, dubbed Rich Kids of Instagram: A Novel is available now for pre-order, in case you're, er, interested. Excuse us, we can feel our breakfast slightly coming up.
