Crystal Renn's fascinating biography tells the tale of a young teenage girl drawn to the glamorous, heady world of high-fashion. Always a "normal" weight for her height, modeling agents, agency executives and photographers warned her that unless she lost an extreme amount of weight, though beautiful and photogenic as she was, she would never get work in the world of high-fashion modeling. Renn, like many girls in the modeling industry embarked on a severe weight loss regimen that involved extreme calorie reduction and endless cycles of exercise. She quickly developed a devastating eating disorder, but she continued her persuit of success in the high-fashion modeling world. Finally at her breaking point, Renn decides to feed herself and take care of herself properly, Though she was afraid she might never model again, she made a priority of saving her life. Much to her surprise, once she embraced the woman she really was, she found success and happiness beyond her wildest dreams. Read Crystal Renn's story to join in her joy of loving herself as she is and finding love for your true self!

I completely connected to Crystal in this book. I felt like she took parts of my own life and put it into this book. I love the fashion industry and want to be a model so bad, and until I read this book, I thought I had to starve myself in order to fit into the mold of the average "straight size" model. So, that's what I did: I starved myself. Only, I lost alot more weight, a lot faster, than Crystal did, and it took everything in me not to eat, not to exercise and to try to stay that size...until I fainted at work and was sent to the hospital. Now, like Crystal, I'm a healthy size 12 and I love my body now more than ever. And, like Crystal, I want to become a top plus-size model. Getting just this little glimpse itno Crysal's world was amazing and inspiring. I wish I found this book earlier in my life.

I read this book a year ago, when I was not feeling so great about my body. It seriously changed my whole perspective on beauty. This book made me realize that everyone has characteristics that make them beautiful.
