I liked Smile for the Camera a lot. It's about a girl at the age of sixteen who runs away from her home to New York City to hopefully become a model. We quickly learn about her abusive childhood. This book is definitely for ages 14 and has mature content. It's not a book for the weak-hearted. It's a story about adventure, love, friendship and finding where you belong. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes memoirs or realistic fiction.
