NEW YORK (AP) -- Tyra Banks wants to spread some truth, and a little fantasy.
The talk show host and former model has agreed to a three-book deal with Delacorte Press for a fantasy series for young people. It's about a girl trying to keep up with the beauty game at an elite school for supermodels, or Intoxibellas.
Delacorte said Tuesday that the first novel, "Modelland," comes out in the summer of 2011.
Delacorte is an imprint of Random House Children's Books.
