I'll just come out and say it: I'm obsessed with models. I know all their names, hair colors, and dress sizes. OK, the last statement is not true, but you get my drift. That's why This Year's Model, a Novel ($14) piqued my interest. It's written by famous '80s supermodel Carol Alt, so you know it has clout. If you want to find out all about the glamorous yet cutthroat world of fashion and fame, this book's for you. See it all through the eyes of the main character, the tall and gorgeous Melody Ann Croft. Like many real-life models, she gets discovered while waitressing, and quickly learns that in modeling, nothing's easy. Dun dun dun!
