Descrição

Sixteen-year-old Crystal knows she's blessed. She is drop-dead gorgeous and in the beginning stages of a glamorous career as a model in New York City. At first, modeling is exciting. But soon, her life becomes less and less about her, and more and more about her body. Crystal wonders if her new life is worth giving up everything -- her friends, her beliefs, and her self-respect.

    "Modeling is a tough racket. You have to put up with a lot of garbage. You're earning this money."Crystal is at the beginning of a glamorous modeling career in New York City. But what begins as an exciting experience for the sixteen-year-old becomes more than she bargained for in Crystal by author Walter Dean Myers.I first read this YA novel back in my adolescence. Although the latest edition I read this time may have more than one detail updated from the edition I read decades ago, I can still see why the story painted such an accessible picture for me back then. It says enough, and ultimately hits pretty hard, without spelling everything out.Yes, this is a story about the entertainment industry, modeling intersecting with television and movies, but of course, the importance is in Crystal's journey of self-discovery. And what I understand more this time around is an aspect of the pressure of Crystal's opportunity where her parents are concerned. Now, there were places where I didn't get the best sense of Crystal's personality, and this isn't a sparkling tale with a happy-go-lucky ending, but it's a compelling one.This may be the only novel I read by this late author back in the day, but I plan on trying at least a little more of his work.
