Overview

Supermodel Carol Alt brings the inside world of high-end fashion modeling into dazzling focus—with a fabulous novel about what it takes to get to the top...and stay there.

Plucked from obscurity, beautiful Melody Ann Croft is making her way up the industry ladder. But Melody Ann is gone...in her place is "Mac" and with her looks, brains, and drive, she may well be on the brink of becoming America's top model. Suddenly Mac's seeing her name in the tabloids, being wooed by billionaire businessmen...and sharing intimate late-night dinners with movie stars. And she's discovering that the supermodel life isn't all fluff and glamour. It's long hours, hard work, and even harder choices—like choosing to starve or to never work again.

But does Mac have what it takes to be super? Because deep down—behind the perfect body and million-dollar smile—she's still the same hometown Melody Ann she's always been....

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Allison Fetters
Reading this book, we follow Melody Ann Croft (a.k.a. Mac) in the competitive, sometimes cruel, world of modeling. Mac learns quickly that the glamorous life does not come without hard work, low blows and constant sacrifice. As the stress of a long-distance commute begins to take its toll, Mac decides to move to the city in order to ease that burden; however, she soon discovers city-living comes with its own set of challenges. Then again, so does a life spent more on the road than at home. This book conveys a realistic view of what it takes to succeed in the modeling world. Mac is refreshingly portrayed as a determined character with a good head on her shoulders. She demonstrates great maturity at twenty years of age and sets a good example for others. Through her actions, she displays loyalty, determination, motivation, and optimism. In this short glimpse of her life, we see love gained and lost, friendships formed, and dreams realized. This is a page-turner that is both enjoyable and inspiring. Reviewer: Allison Fetters

    MAC is back and ready for her close-up.

    After nine months full of turmoil, MAC, formerly known as Melody Ann Croft, is ready to be the top model in the industry. She's done fashion week in New York and abroad and has even appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated.

    What's next for the most wanted face in the modeling world?

    Of course, that would be the coveted partnership with Cover Girl. MAC has already been starving herself to keep her bookers happy and she's starting to feel the results with dizzy spells and hunger pains. But the model life is so great. Especially meeting all of her admirers.

    A chance meeting with older Hollywood heartthrob Patrick Carroll leads to a short-lived relationship, but it's not until MAC meets Jim, an insanely rich real estate mogul, that MAC thinks she has found the guy for her. But what does he really want from her? She's tired of being his arm candy and tired of his controlling ways.

    All MAC really wants is to be the next face of Cover Girl, and she is willing to do anything to get the lucrative contract.

    MAC's rise in the modeling world is too fast-paced and her affairs with older men are too numerous for just one book, but overall MAC is likeable and you can see traces of her in all of the models out there today, trying so hard to please everyone and succeed that they forget to care for themselves in the process.
