Sinossi

In December 2011, 21-year-old Victoria's Secret model Kylie Bisutti stunned the fashion industry when she chose faith over fame and fortune and made the switch from supermodel to role model.

In I'm No Angel, Kylie shares her story--from her early years struggling to make it big in the cut-throat world of modeling, her "big break" winning the Victoria's Secret Runway Angel competition, and the disillusionment and spiritual warfare that followed, to the moment she realized that she could no longer reconcile her career with her Christian beliefs, surrendered her life to God, said goodbye to the runway, and dedicated her life to preaching a message of modesty and inner beauty.

Along the way, Kylie talks about her personal struggles with inadequacy, low self-esteem, and her near-constant quest for approval in a world where you can never be thin enough, pretty enough, or sexy enough. She helps readers understand that true beauty lies within and that real fulfillment comes from knowing, loving, and serving Christ.

A "MUST READ" FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL AND HIGH SCHOOL AGED YOUNG WOMEN.

If I were still teaching middle school confirmation at church, I'd put this book into the hands of every young woman in my class. Ms. Bisutti and her husband Mike (They are clearly a team) courageously shine a bright light into the spiritual darkness that would seduce everyone. I say "everyone" because it isn't just young women who are being overwhelmed with the idols of the overly sexualized fashion industry. Young men are being inundated with the counterfeit images of beauty as well. In short, none of us are immune to its harmful effects.

I especially appreciate that Ms. Bisutti didn't simply focus on the pitfalls of embracing counterfeits. She also devoted a good portion of her book on how to experience the Good, the True, and the Beautiful through a relationship with God.

It is a wonderful, easy-to-read book that is especially suitable for young women. I would encourage older, more mature men to also read the book and share its lessons with the young men in their lives. I certainly intend to do so with my son someday.

Kylie takes the reader through her experiences as a model, from her first audition to the Victoria Secret runway and everything that came between. Her story was fascinating. It was eye opening. I didn't know that models got started so young. I was horrified at the things that these young girls were expected and pressured to do. I thought that America had laws against children being photographed in provocative poses without much (or anything) for clothing on. Kylie talks about her mistakes, her budding faith, and her hard work to get to the top of the modeling industry.

She talks about how she compromised her beliefs in favor of her career. She tried to rationalize away the prickling of her conscience. As an outsider reading her story, I could see the blaring oxymoron that her life had become. On the one hand she was trying to be a good Christian and draw closer to God. On the other hand, she was selling sex. But it isn't easy to see those things when you are the person going through it. Kylie shares her struggles, her triumphs, and her epiphany when she realized that her two lives could never work together. She had to pick one or the other.

This book is worth the read. Kylie shares her testimony about respecting yourself, your family, and God by dressing modestly and making sure your actions coincide with your beliefs. I work with a group of young girls in my church and Kylie's testimony gave me some great material to share with them. Hopefully her experience will help them understand the importance of respecting the beautiful bodies that God created for them.

Content: The author shares her experiences, even the uncomfortable ones, but she manages to give the situation without going overboard on the details. It's pretty clean, but read it first if you are thinking of giving it to your teen.

I'm No Angel: From Victoria's Secret Model to Role Model... what an incredible book! What a journey Kylie went on! Besides sharing an amazing story of redemption, this book was really, really interesting. It pulled me in. Kylie apparently has a way with words. What a gift she's given to us in sharing her story; she experienced the agonies and thrills of modeling herself, and understands firsthand a girl's longing to be a Victoria's Secret "Angel", born from the desire to be beautiful, thin, noticed, adored, loved...
I don't want to give anything more away... You should really read this book though! Kylie Bisutti was there. She was a Victoria's Secret model, an "Angel", the most coveted model there is probably. Will you hear her words? Will you understand why she turned around and walked out without regret? Kylie will tell you what it's like to be a modeling "Angel", and why it's best you don't go there.

I like reading life stories, and I particularly enjoy those that disclose how an encounter with God changed their direction. This book fulfilled those expectations. It was well-written and I felt what the author shared was genuine. I did come away with the nagging suspicion there was more to be disclosed about the parents' role--or lack thereof--in the teenager being taken advantage of. Surely no one can be naive enough to believe a beautiful child can travel abroad alone, model scanty clothing, and not get into compromising or threatening situations? This book illustrates the harmful impact of peer pressure, the falsehood of situational ethics, and some seedy aspects of the fashion industry. Interesting read.

I bought this book for a daughter and she loves it! I like the honesty and dedication in this book. The Entertainment industry is competitive with more concern for the dollar than the performer. Kylie is concerned with a variety of needs, not just on the outside. She speaks as an industry insider to the young people who are interested in pursuing a career in Modeling.

Listen, Ladies (and Gents), when you are becoming too thin, your body doesn't burn fat anymore. Yes, that's right; instead, it burns muscle. The reason your body starts burning muscle is that it is trying to keep your heart and your lungs alive. Your heart is also a muscle. Think about that. You don't have to be starved to be a model. Eating Disorders affect up to 24 million Americans and 70 million individuals worldwide, 10 to 15% are estimated to be male, 90% of those who have eating disorders are female between 12 and 25 years old, and young women with anorexia are 12 times more likely to die than her non-anorexic peers. Vitamin and mineral deficiency is another result of a lack of food, and can lead to anemia, diarrhea, rashes, edema and heart failure. Carre' Otis reveals that her teeth and nails were breaking down and were corrected in photos and with on-site manicures. It IS possible for models to be larger than the common belief and still wow their industry, as do these 8 models featured in an article in Shape magazine: http://www.shape.com/celebrities/celebrity-photos/8-models-healthy-bodies/slide/all. So go out there and kick butt with your health intact!
