Isn't a model suppose to have the best job ever? just walk around, strike a pose and get paid? Not quite.

This memoir talks about the journey that Cheryl Diamond (an inspiring model) took in order to even become known by figures in the modeling industry. She tried to become a model at the age of 14 but gets rejected because of her age and height. She refuses to give up and arrives back in New York City at the age of 16 to become a model. She gets signed into a modeling agency and the fun begins... not yet! With her beautiful natural blonde hair and perfect figure, she becomes the envy of many "friends" and she finds out that modeling isn't all fun and games. Living in a small apartment and with hardly any money Cheryl decides that she has to step up her game. She learns to fight for what she wants and shows her determination along with the dark side of modeling.

I thought that this book was a pretty good book because it really showed how people would do anything to be famous and it showed the other side of what everyone thought is a good thing. I think if the author gave a little more detail of what happened in the time off the runway then it would have been much better. but overall i think this is a good book.
