Summary

ATFOURTEEN, I WAS A REGULAR JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT IN CLINTON, MISSISSIPPI, WHEN A MODELING SCOUT TOLD ME: YOU COULD BE A SUPERMODEL . . . BUT YOU'LL HAVE TO LOSE A LITTLE WEIGHT.FOR GLAMOUR, FAME, AND ESCAPE, I LOST SEVENTY POUNDS.This is a photo of me atSIXTEEN, when I signed a big modeling contract, moved to New York City, and started traveling around the world.It is also when I developed a ferocious case of anorexia and exercise bulimia.Until I decided enough was enoughI wanted to live.And so I ate. And ate.Offering a behind-the-scenes peek into the modeling industry, as well as a trenchant look at our weight-obsessed culture,Hungryis an inspiring and cautionary tale that will resonate with anyone who has battled society's small-minded definitions of beauty.This is meNOW, the leading plus-size model in America.
