This Year's Model

If you are looking for a light-hearted, frolicking read then this book is for you. Ms. Alt gives us one version of the mysterious world of fashion modeling as we follow Melody Ann (Mac) Croft from her humble beginnings as a waitress in the Porter House to the dizzying heights of a top fashion model.
But it’s not all glamour and prestige. There is hard work involved in both the modeling and the race to get to be the model, along with the competition for that top spot, and the myriad of people who are either on the other end of the camera or the telephone. 
In the end you have a story that is fun to read and characters that are engaging and able to keep you going until you find out how it ends. But then there’s always tomorrow and who knows what that will bring?

Book Blurb for This Year's Model

Carol Alt, already a successful author (”Eating In The Raw”, “The Raw 50″), has now turned her considerable writing skills to fiction.  Her debut novel, “This Year’s Model” (Avon A, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, ISBN 97800611366246), goes on sale August 26, 2008.

Loosely based upon Carol’s own brilliant and unparalleled career in the world of high fashion modeling, “This Year’s Model” follows the exploits, both professional and personal, of a beautiful young woman as she enters and conquers the intriguing world of agencies, photographers, runways and romance.

This novel is a “must read” for anyone interested in pursuing a career in the fashion industry, as well as for their families, or for anyone who’s just plain curious about this very glamorous - and to most people, mysterious - life.
