I found the story to be very interesting, but I could not get used to the author's writing. It just was not for me and had too slow a pace for me to love it. Either way, I still enjoyed learning about how fascinating it was for 16 year old Kelle to go from living with a dysfunctional family all the way to NYC and to realize her dream of modeling. For her, as well as the reader, things in NYC start off very slowly, but they gradually begin to pick up. I thought it was so nice that she met her friend Rayna. I loved her quite a lot and I HATED a few of the folks because they were horrible people. What makes the book even more compelling is that Kelle met a man that ends up going to jail. His name is Buddy and there's a little bit of a mystery in the book about him. Sadly, we don't get too much information on that, just like in real life. I think the thing I liked the most about this read was Kelle's attitude. She is quite the pistol and as she says, unfortunately, she was naive when this all occurred, thankfully that attitude and way of thinking seemed to come in handy. Of course I also adore that her dream came true! That is just ... so great! -T.V and Book Addict

The book Smile for the Camera is a very good book. It's the kind of book you'll never want to put down. If I could rate this book I would give it a 10/10. The main character in this book is Kelle James. Kelle is a fifteen year old who runs away from home to go to New York City. Kelle thinks going to New York will be good for her, she is thinking she'll become famous, rich, and have it all; What she doesn't realize is a few weeks after she gets there she will be homeless and having people take advantage of her. Kelle has an abusive father so, most of the time she doesn't want to mess with anyone. She finds a best friend names Rayna, they both are in the same conditions; homeless, broke, an unemployed. Kelle is a very brave girl in this book, and in life because of all the people taking advantage of her. (Since she is the author.) She has to go through a good friend being charged with murder, being in a house with rats, and starving all at once. Things do get better as the book goes on but that is just something you will have to find out for yourself. So I suggest you buy this book and realize how much you'll love it.
