I really wanted to like this book. I consider myself a big fan of Crystal Renn, and I think her story is an important one, but there were some parts of this book that made me a little uncomfortable. There’s some serious anger and resentment there, and she sometimes skews pro-fat instead of pro-health. I’ve read interviews with her more recently, and she has said that she is finally able to exercise moderately, so I imagine her own feelings about exercise colored that part of the book. In any event, the book is an interesting look at the pressures on young models, and her choice to get healthy is inspiring.
