Every year, hundreds of the most beautiful people in the world come to New York to become models. At age fourteen, Cheryl Diamond was one of them. Living on her own in a run-down apartment, Cheryl spent her days on go-sees, runways, and shoots, surviving hand-to-mouth, while taking in everything she could about the tough and sleazy modeling industry. She watched other girls make mistakes, and swore she wouldn't be a victim...until a career-altering event changed her life and nearly ruined her shot at her dream. This is the riveting, true account of Cheryl's triumphant rise, disastrous fall, and phoenix-like comeback in one of the hottest and most demanding industries in the world.

The greatest thing about this book is Cheryl's witty sense of humor. I was pretty much laughing through the entire book! The only problem is that the story is rather lacking a major ending... But it's an autobiography, so that could be expected. Either way, I definitely recommend this book.

Amazing, it was very vivid indeed. I never even knew somebody could get their hair permanently dyed orange without even knowing. Or lost their cat in New York while in a less-than-1-star-hotesl

I loved reading this novel. It was so inspiring and I could feel the pain of Cheryl when she had to go through her life as a model. Near the end, it got a bit dull since it was really open-ended.
