Emma Jeffries’ has it all during her sophomore year at the Treadwell Academy: killer looks, a modeling career on the rise, all the money she can spend, and a boyfriend at St. John’s Preparatory Academy who adores her. But when her father, one of the world’s wealthiest apparel retailers, decides she should no longer be the cover model for his clothing chain, Hunter Lodge, her world comes crashing down. International headlines claim that her firing was based on weight gain. For the first time in her life, she’s the target of vicious whispers on the Treadwell campus. When she decides to strike out against her parents’ wishes on her own to pursue her dream of modeling, she tumbles head-first into a world of eating disorders and untrustworthy industry-types. Charlie, a cute photographer’s assistant from New Zealand, keeps trying to get close to her out of concern, but her self-confidence is further rocked when Charlie refuses to be her boyfriend. She discovers that when you’re on top, everyone wants a piece of you, and if you keep giving people what they want… eventually there’s nothing left.
