"I'm No Angel" by Kylie Biscutti

About this book:

“In December 2011, 21-year-old Victoria's Secret Runway Angel Kylie Bisutti stunned the fashion industry when she chose faith over fame and fortune and made the switch from supermodel to role model.In "I'm No Angel," Kylie shares her story--from her early years struggling to make it big in the cut-throat world of modeling, her "big break" winning the Victoria's Secret Runway Angel competition, and the disillusionment and spiritual warfare that followed, to the moment she realized that she could no longer reconcile her career with her Christian beliefs, surrendered her life to God, and dedicated her life to preaching a message of modesty and inner beauty.Along the way, Kylie talks about her personal struggles with inadequacy, low self-esteem, and her near-constant quest for approval in a world where you can never be thin enough, pretty enough, or sexy enough. She helps readers understand that true beauty lies within and that real fulfillment comes from knowing, loving, and serving Christ.”

                                         Written in a almost diary-like Point of view of Kylie
    287 pages of her story, 8 pages of pictures, and 37 pages of the devotion in the back; 290 total.

I do not own any Victoria’s Secret clothing or want any of it, go near or into their stores. It’s just a no-no for me. I liked how Kylie’s has a happy ending/beginning, end of modeling, happily married to her husband, with a stepson & baby on the way (Three months to go!), it’s just the beginning of her new life, and I’m so happy for her!
