Almost 5' 4'': Confessions of an Unconventional Model - Isobella Jade (2010)

Have you ever wanted to be something in life but been told "sorry, no can do, you're not what we're looking for"? This is a constant refrain for Isobella Jade, a petite model in New York. For her the modelling life isn't about living it large and partying with the stars. Instead Isobella is what is called a "jobbing model". She hurries between classes to different photocalls, hoping that this time she will be chosen. Her memoir details her life as an "unconventional model", gaining experience from nudity shots to landing an extra's role on TV series Sex and The City. This is a story about discovering what it is that you really want in life, showing what you can achieve if you are passionate enough and willing to persevere to reach for your dreams - even when you're under 5 feet, 4 inches tall in heels. It's a tale of inspiration, perspiration (dashing from job to class to job) and motivation - a story for all women no matter what age, shape or size you are. (PP)
