I don't understand

I am Allison. I want to be a model. Could you possibly give me a round-trip ticket to visit your agency? I am the person you are looking for. I live in Orange Park, Florida. my number is (904) 635-3125. Glamour shots has pictures of me. You can also contact Nikki Hall @ Barbizon Atlanta, Georgia. Thank you for your prompt attention.good day, allison "ally"

Emme- true role model for the 21st century

Well, I actually got the book in a second hand bookstore for 5 dollars. I guess what surprised me is how it was in such good condition, my guess is maybe the previous owner didn't get the message. But I sure did, this book rocked! I loved everything about it. I can't relate to emme's childhood, my weight didn't become an issue until my teens. But I did relate to the fact she struggled in love and in her work. I have been inspired also to look into plus size modelling. Emme proves that women should be true to themselves, and not fit to anyone else's standards.

OUTSTANDING!

EMME HITS HOME WITH ALL THE PSYCHOLOGICAL DILEMAS WE ALL FACE WITH WEIGHT AND AND NOT BEING THE "AVERAGE" SIZE 8. I HAVE A WHOLE NEW RESPECT FOR MY SIZE AND HEIGHT - THIS IS SOMETHING THAT YOU ARE BORN WITH AND THIS BOOK IS A REVELATION FOR ANYONE WHO ALWAYS FELT THAT THEY NEVER QUITE FIT THE STANDARD "WOMAN" OF THE 90'S. EMME IS JUST LIKE YOU AND ME - SHE IS WONDERFUL AND REAL.

Thanks Emme

This book is such a great confidence booster for those of us who are plus-sized. You have done a great job of letting us know we aren't alone. My fiance thinks you are one of the most beautiful women in the world. He saw you on the cover of MODE magazine and bought me the book the next day! Thanks for making me feel beautiful again.

Better than a big sister!

I caught the special on E! about Emme and just happened to notice that she had written a book. Later that week, I was in the bookstore, and I swear, the book called to me. From that all natural, but gorgeous cover photograph, to the last pages of large-size store and catalog companies, this book sucked me in! Women with weight problems have finally found a voice with Emme. She's the big sister I never had, encouraging me to like myself, and helping me to see the positive side of being larger than the cover models that we face each day. It doesn't get draggy with a lot of psychobabble, either. It's Emme's struggle and how she overcame her obstacles, while helping us to see that dreams are possible through very real and everyday eyes
