I was going to get out of the modeling business for good.
But now I’m having trouble sticking with my decision. After all, if it wasn’t for modeling, I might still be the invisible wallflower. Hot guys like Paulo wouldn’t be interested in me. And I’d never have seen Brazil or Spain-and now France! On the other hand…
I also wouldn’t have to choose between my best friend from home and my agent’s shrill demands. Or anguish over my body the way only runway models do. Not to mention all this trouble I’m getting into for speaking out in the press about eating disorders.
Maybe the life of an international model isn’t for me. But if I quit for good, I might always wonder…What if?
(Summary from Amazon)
I loved the first book in the series, Violet on the Runway, and this second addition to the series will not let you down. The characters, Violet especially, were just as down-to-earth as they were in the previous book and I could still relate to them, even though they’ve all changed a bit. The flawless prose keeps you intrigued in the story and you’ll probably have a hard time putting it down.
My favorite thing about these books continues to be the raw honesty that Walker uses when describing the events happening behind the curtain of the modeling industry. Many people seem to be under the impression the models live the perfect life but that’s not true at all. Melissa Walker only brings truth to that.
If you haven’t read the first book in the series, I suggest picking it up, along with this sequel. You won’t be disappointed!
Violet Greenfield is a wallflower. She feels way too tall and skinny and the only two people she feels comfortable around are her two best friends. But her life changes forever when a lady with Chanel shades comes into the theater where Violet works and tells her she could be the next IT model. Soon, Violet is on a plane to New York, with other people deciding what she should wear and how she should act. She soon realizes that the life of a model isn’t always fabulous.
Violet on the Runway is an amazing book about what really takes place behind the runway, in the life of a model. The characters were realistic and three dimensional and though I know nothing about modeling, I could relate to everything Violet was going through. I must say that Violet on the Runway is way better than what I expected and it’s not your normal “Not It Girl Turned IT Girl” novel. I definitely recommend picking this book up on your next trip to the bookstore.
