View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Eva Voorhees survived an abusive childhood to become one of the world’s most sought-after models of the 1980s, an era when models gracing magazine covers were just beginning to become celebrities in their own right. But behind the persona of fame, fortune, and glamour lingered a lifetime of insecurities and countless tragic events.

During her childhood, Voorhees’ mother constantly belittles her daughter’s striking features and calls her ugly. Following his mother’s lead, Voorhees’ brother becomes her own personal abuser, inflicting emotional and physical pain on her at every chance. All Voorhees wants is love and affection—something that will never come from her family.

Voorhees finally receives personal validation about her looks when she lands a modeling contract at age eighteen. But her happiness is short-lived. After appearing in the pages of Vogue, Cosmopolitan, and Harper’s Bazaar, she creates her own family, only to have it ripped apart. In an act of desperation and despair, she does what she believes she must to keep her family intact.

In her moving memoir, Voorhees shares the insurmountable odds and heart-shattering blows she faced, and how she summoned up the strength and courage to overcome her devastating losses.
