"People have long cataloged the bizarre writing habits of authors, from P.G. Wodehouse pinning pages on his wall to Dan Brown timing his push-up and sit-up breaks with an hourglass. Now we can add the name Isobella Jade to that collection."– New York Post
"Wizard of self promotion"- Advertising Age
"Isobella Jade would probably hold the record for being Apple's most famous freeloader." - Sydney Morning Herald
Confessions of an unconventional model Everyone told Isobella that she would never make it as a model. She was too short for a start. But she wouldn't listen. Determined to live her dream she started from the bottom and worked her way up. This is her story. From dodgy online agencies and nude shoots with amateur photographers right through to fashion spreads, magazine covers and appearing in pop videos, Isobella has seen and done it all. And she tells it all in her memoirs. Forget Kate, Giselle, Claudia and Naomi, this is the reality of modelling for thousands of young women across the world. And it isn't as glamorous as the media would have us believe. Isobella wrote the book while still a penniless jobbing model. She couldn't afford a computer or internet connection (she didn't even have a permanent place to live) so would visit the Apple Store in New York every day, log on, and write her story. Almost 5'4" is an inspirational tale for women of all ages, shapes and sizes. It shows that you can battle against the odds to achieve your dreams and how a bit of hustling and a 'fuck you' attitude can work wonders.See all Product description

This book is fairly readable because the author writes well and is extremely candid in her narrative. It doesn't really glamourise nude modelling, in fact it does a fair bit to dissuade any would-be models because it looks disheartening and somewhat dangerous to boot. That being said, I think as a reader you admire Isobella's sheer determination to succeed which manages to alienate friends and family along the way. It's a good read if you're interested in the seedier side of the fashion/modelling world and any related professions.

She amazed me with her resistance to negativity and perseverance to get herself to the top.
She is absolutely amazing.
I would give this star 2.5 if possible, but I'll round up.
