This Year's Model (Paperback)
Supermodel Carol Alt takes us on a wild ride through the glamorous, cutthroat world of fashion and fame--in a biting, witty, and absolutely authentic novel that rocks the world of high-end modeling
Tall, beautiful, practical Melody Ann Croft of Morristown, New Jersey, is busting her behind as a waitress and wishing there was an easier way to earn money for college. When a customer claiming to be a fashion photographer insists she could become a model, Melody is skeptical--and totally shocked when dropping his name actually opens agency doors. Signed up before her head has even stopped spinning, she's got a new name--Mac--and is off to her first shoot. Could this be that "easier way" at last?
But in modeling, nothing's easy. Mac faces demanding diva photographers with their body-torturing, day-long sessions, and jealous rivals whose flawless beauty hides sharp claws. There are rumors and lies, lecherous model-collecting playboys, rock stars and drugs, and the most perilous pitfall of them all . . .straight male models Temptation is everywhere, and even a level-headed Jersey girl may have trouble keeping her footing on the long, hard climb up.
