"One ordinary girl, one extraordinary moment" There are three things everyone notices about Alice. 1. Her super-hot rugby boyfriend. 2. Her sophisticated, totally gorgeous best friend. 3. Her very noticeable 38-inch long legs.
Alice is tall - just under six feet to be exact - but her self-esteem couldn't be smaller. When her relationship starts wavering, Alice's perfectly beautiful best friend somehow convinces her to join a modelling competition, "for a confidence boost." But Alice is just a normal girl; she loves ice cream too much, has an unhealthy addiction to American TV and lusts after the elusive thigh gap. She can't even walk in heels, let alone in a bikini, but she finds herself joining Runway Models anyway.
The finale is only a few months away.
Will Alice catwalk her way to self-confidence or fail, proving everyone right? People can surprise you.
My Review: Well we all know how I like a good book to read and one that can be relate-able. Like this one, Alice is a great person. She's tall, beautiful, has a hot boyfriend, a good friend, right now she has it all. But as things start to fall apart, she will enter a modeling competition. Mostly just to try and get herself back. She isn't sure though, she has things she doesn't like about herself, plus she doesn't really do modeling. But why not try it anyway?
Alice goes for it, goes through all the emotions you'd expect. All on the way of finding herself and gaing all the confidence back. She actually does such a great job, that I just couldn't help but like this book. It's really great to read as a break from your normal read. It's just one of those books that all girls should read.
