World of Work books feature easy-to-read text that offers much-needed information and resources for getting that job.

This is a great resource for teens who would like to pursue a career in modeling -- be it as a full-time runway model, dabbling as a catalog model, or as a plus-size model. The author discusses everything from finding an agent and putting together a portfolio to the various risks (eating disorders, drugs and alcohol) and responsibilities involved. By detailing both the pros and the cons of modeling, this title offers a refreshingly unbiased overview of a career that is often associated with excess and the creation of unrealistic images of the female body.
