1. Violet on the Runway - Melissa Walker
This book goes right past the surface of the modelling industry and discusses the harsh, unattractive side to being a model which is somewhat hidden from us in real life and how the media affects them in such ways that it's quite disturbing and very sad.
Violet is still learning and discovering things about herself, trying to find a way to fit in and also trying to find out who she truly is, which many young adults can relate to.
Soon she gets scouted by a famous modelling agency and her life is quickly turned upside down.
She gets taken to New York for castings and auditions, staying in a model house with others who see her as competition and make her life very hard as an amateur model just starting out.
She gets sucked into another life, one that she starts out thinking of as amazing and glamourous but soon the cracks start to show and she realises there's a lot more to it than meets the eye.
It really highlights how much pressure they are under all the time and Violet has to decide whether or not she wants to be a part of that, or whether she prefers living her own life in a small town, right away from the spotlight and cameras.
