“Rebels: The city of Indra” is a dystopian/sci-fi novel inspired by the Jenner sisters but actually written by Maya Sloan about two young women from opposing factions society in a future fascist world. The narrative alternates from the prospective of Lex, a non-conformist orphan from the lower caste of Indrathian who is predestined to serve in a security force and Livia, another equally non-conformist woman from the higher echelons who is introduced as she is trained for her upcoming debutante ball. Through the course of their respective training, both girls encounter and are love-struck by a mysterious social rebel Kane. When both of them are invited to meet Kane privately, they initially see one another as enemies and rivals for Kane’s love, but he is revealed to a part of an secret caste of ignored society who work in the literal and figurative bowels of the Indra. They cooperate to save Kane, and join the underground movement where they discover they are long lost sisters. The book ends on a cliffhanger as both sisters attempt reenter Indra as with intent of revealing the truth about their world and rescue their parents how might still be alive. There – I saved you from reading the book let alone buying it.
For the seasoned and reasoned reader, it is pretty much what you expect when teenage celebrities are commissioned to write a book and the story behind “Rebels” is an unfortunate black comedy of errors that is more interesting than the book itself. What I have discovered was that when the publisher asked for a book from the Jenner sisters, the sisters sought to write something completely unrelated to their fame – BAD IDEA. The sisters, who were most likely inspired by the audiobooks versions of “teens in dystopia” genre they listened to while distracted with something else, were egged on by their handler into thinking that writing would be easy, nay, easier because an award-wining ghostwriter would help them all the way. Perhaps unbeknownst to them, all ghostwriters are NOT created equal and Ms. Sloan, who up to that point, had only written two fiction books and plays up her awards more than actual work. Mrs. Sloan consults her husband about her concerns writing sci-fi and he tells her to go for it – I hope he slept on the couch for a long time. That inexperience, combined with trying to draw a readable book from the likes of the Jenner sisters resulted in a composition that would be been left anonymously posted on some fanfiction site, better yet, an ashcan copy never to see the light of day.
The characters are as appealing as Macys Mannequins. The plot combines the every teen dystopia novel like ingredients in an unappealing foreign food. The pacing goes slowly uphill and then promptly and painfully tumbles down the other side as a resolution. While the Jenner sisters can, and have declared that they did not write this, this book will be to Mrs. Sloan what "Showgirls" was to Elizabeth Berkley.
