Review of "I'm No Angel" by Kylie Bisutti

Kylie Bisutti is in her early 20's but has already lived a lot of life - and has discovered what is truly important to her.  From an early age Kylie wanted to be a model and worked intently towards that goal.  Her parents and eventually her husband, Mike, all supported her dream and encouraged her to put in the effort to "make it".  Kylie eventually wins the prestigious Victoria's Secret Runway Angel competition but soon realizes that the lifestyle required of her is not one she is willing to lead.  And so, she gives up the title and gains her life back as well as her self-respect.

What an interesting story; I loved the behind-the-scenes look at the modeling world, and Kylie is graceful in her telling of her life so far.  I am blown away that even in today's day and age, there are still industry people telling 5'10 girls that 115 lbs is "too fat".  Unbelievable.  I also especially appreciated her husband's perspective - he didn't pressure or even ask her to quit; he just prayed that she would hear from God and make the decision God wanted her to make.  That is not an easy thing to do and for that he deserves a great deal of respect.  I can easily recommend this book.  You will also enjoy the "30-Day True Beauty" Makeover at the end.
