Who you are and who you want to be don't always match up. Like most teenage girls, you've probably spent lots of time in front of the mirror wondering what you'll be when you grow up---or dreaming of who you'll become. Is it a supermodel, an actress, a dancer, or is it a businesswoman, a mom, or even a pastor? Brooklyn Lindsey grew up dreaming of being a supermodel. She even had a chance to do some modeling and became a festival queen. Her experiences taught her a lot about what she did and didn't want in life. But it wasn't until she became a youth pastor that she realized God had already set her 'supermodel' dream in motion. God had plans for her to be a different kind of 'supermodel.' God has a plan for you, too---and it's probably bigger than anything you could ever imagine. Read along as Brooklyn shares stories of triumph and tragedy as an aspiring model, and learn how your faith and your friends play a significant role in who you are and who you'll become. In Confessions of a Not-So-Super Model you'll begin to reshape the way you see yourself and the way you dream. You'll discover that being a supermodel doesn't always require fabulous hair and a great figure.
