I've heard a podcast where they talked about it and people are turning into parked cars and appearing in grocery store cash registers and there are only 7 famous people in the world and they all have super powers. I almost want to read it, but it sounds SO terrible I can't bring myself to read it.

"I’m always dreaming up ideas, like when the words “modeling boarding school” floated into my head while I was driving on the FDR highway in Manhattan. I wrote them down in a little notepad and, five years, thousands of pages and dozens of writing getaways later, I finally get to call myself the author of Modelland."
