I did not know what to expect from this book, as I've found from reading autobiographies of younger people, they can often just be fluff pieces and somewhat self-absorbed. "I'm No Angel" by Kylie Bisutti is nothing of the sort! I was blown away by how genuine, sincere and humble Kylie is and I really enjoyed her entire story. She does a great job of sharing about her life without glossing over mistakes she'd made or avoiding "the rest of the story" to make herself look better. Her honesty and humility are a breath of fresh air and just what our society and this younger generation needs.
With the oversexualization of women in our culture, especially that of young girls and teenagers, Kylie's story is a must-read for girls and their moms as Kylie herself fell prey to the influences of the world. However, praise be to God, she came to a saving knowledge of Him, and though it still took a few years for her to mature into realizing that her current lifestyle did not mesh with what God intended for her, she was responsive to the Holy Spirit's leading and her example is such an encouragement for the rest of us.
One of the best surprises of this book is the mini devotional at the end, "30 Days to a More Beautiful You," in which Kylie takes different aspects of beauty and brings it all back to Scripture and how to truly attain the beauty of The Lord. Again, I'm just blown away by the maturity and godliness of this young woman and I highly recommend this book to all young women.
I really enjoyed this book; it was easy to read and well-written. Kylie really needed to adjust her perspective to be able to see modeling from God's point of view and I think she did well to see that and then to make the necessary changes. That wasn't easy. I just hope her message gets across to the young girl/ladies of today. It's not all about being a size 0. It's about living and honoring God with our heart, soul, and body.
Wonderful story about using fame to be a role model for the world through your beliefs in Christianity. The book focuses on the beauty on the inside and not just what is seen on the outside. Although health is important its about being comfortable and happy with yourself while maintaining your beliefs
I was intrigued by Kylie's story from the first page. This was a very well-written and thought-provoking memoir. It touched my heart and completely captivated me. I love reading nonfiction when it's written in a way that makes it as interesting as any fiction book, and this book was that way. Highly recommend it! Especially for anyone considering pursuing a modeling career, and any teenage girl who wants to be beautiful.
