The Kardashian sisters seem to be everywhere -- on TV, opening boutiques, launching nail polish collections, splashed across magazine covers -- but their most recent move is a surprising one. Kendall and Kylie Jenner (16 and 14, respectively) are writing a YA novel. Inspired by their favorite series The Hunger Games and Harry Potter, the siblings imagined a science fiction story about a pair of sisters 200 years in the future.
"We want to do something so different, something that we really love," Kendall told E! Online.
The book is already in the works with cowriter Maya Sloane and publishing house Simon & Schuster.
