WINNER OF THE YA BOOK PRIZE 2020
Jana Novak's history sounds like a classic model cliché: tall and gangly, she's uncomfortable with her androgynous looks until she's unexpectedly scouted and catapulted to superstardom...
But the fashion industry is as grimy as it is glamorous. And there are unexpected predators at every turn.
Jana is an ordinary girl from a south London estate, lifted to unimaginable heights. But the further you rise, the more devastating your fall ...
Honest and raw, this is a timely exposé of the dark underbelly of the fashion industry in an era of #TimesUp and #MeToo. It might just be Juno Dawson's most important book yet.
'Juno Dawson slashes through the glamour of the fashion industry ... combining blockbuster appeal with piercing commentary on modelling, body image and consent' Observer

This book is so well written and really made me feel like I was gaining a real insight to Jana, she felt real, like it was a true story. The book gives a scary light on the fashion world that we all try to imagine isn’t happening when buying our new clothes so it’s good for bringing you back down to earth. There’s some surprises that you don’t expect to which really add to the story.
