I really enjoyed Smile for the Camera, which is actually a memoir. I usually don’t like memoirs, but this one was very different from the ones I read in the past, it was told in a very fast paced manner. It is about a girl, Kelle James, who goes to New York City to get away form her abusive father. She wants to be a model, but once there she realizes the city is tougher that she thought. While there she deals with a lot of exploitations by men and cruelty from people in general. But it also is an uplifting book and I thought it was great. I would recommend it to people who like realistic fiction.
