There is something totally fascinating about seeing bad things happen to pretty people–especially when there is tons of gore involved.
Enter Do You Want to be a Model?, the real-life story of a young Serbian teen navigating her way through the stuff of fashion nightmares–from model apartments that would make your skin crawl (literally) to embezzlement-prone fashion agents with a penchant for lying.
What I like most about the book is Crnokrak Skerlic’s kick-ass girlboss attitude. This is one chick who isn’t afraid to demand a dish of blue Smarties at her next Chanel shoot just because she can.
The writing is kind of rough and reads more like a diary than a memoir. But I’m sure mine would be too if I tried to do it in Russian or whatever language they speak in Belgrade, so whatevs.
All in all an, Do You Want to be a Model? is a fun journey and well worth a peak–even if there aren’t any dead bodies in it.
