“A true insider’s look at the fascinating world of modeling.” —Booklist
"Young Emily becomes an engaging protagonist, as her intelligence and thoughtfulness make the supreme superficiality of the fashion world palatable. Hazelwood’s sharp writing provides a glimpse into a glamorous world, but stays grounded by using college life as a foil to the fashionistas. Her real-life experience as model in the ’80s and ’90s—the era that brought us those larger-than-life supermodels Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell—gives her an insider edge that lends credibility to events that would be otherwise unbelievable." —Bookpage
“Delicious, dishy fun.” —Jennifer Weiner, author of In Her Shoes and Goodnight Nobody
“If you want to know what it’s really like to be a model, look no further. Robin Hazelwood perfectly captures the struggles, the successes, and the excesses of a crazed, camera-ready culture.” —Patrick McMullan, photographer and author of Kiss Kiss, InTents, and So80s
“Fresh, funny, biting, and a little wistful, too, Model Student offers an irresistible insider’s tour of big-time modeling, from the alluring to the appalling to the nitty-gritty. Best of all is guide Emily Woods, a winning combination of pluck, vulnerability, and snappy wit.” —Christina Schwarz, author of Drowning Ruth and All Is Vanity
“If you can imagine The Devil Wears Prada meets I Am Charlotte Simmons, this is it. I was thoroughly entertained.” —Karen Quinn, author of The Ivy Chronicles
“Big dreams—and even bigger hair—go hand in hand in this delicious insider take on the bitchy world of late ’80s modeling.” —Lucinda Rosenfeld, author of What She Saw . . .and Why She Went Home
