Poised at the Edge
Debbie Reed Fischer

Alee Rosen has been called numerous names in her high school career: "egg-head", "brainiac", and "the queen of serious" to name a few. She's a literature-loving feminist, whose primary goal is to Yale. So imagine her dismay when she's accepted at Yale, only to find that her parents can't afford the tuition.
Allee's luck takes an unanticipated turn when she takes her beautiful sister Sabrina (aka "The Fluff") to modeling competition at the mall. Much to Allee's (and her sister's, and well everyone's) surprise, she "discovered" by talent scouts. Allee is signed to major modeling agency in Miami. Now she is leaving the mundane suburban comforts of Cape Comet, and heading to the whirlwind wonderland of high fashion.
But the glamorous life isn't all it's cracked up to be. Allee falls into a hole filled with backstabbing roommates, tireless competition, and over-the top partying. It's hard to keep to her feet on the ground, and her mind on her goals (Yale!) while she's living in this alternate reality.
BRALESS IN WONDERLAND is fast-paced, clever, entertaining, and oh-so satisfying read. Debut author Debbie Reed Fischer gives us a funny, scary, realistic peek into the sometimes vicious, always fascinating world of professional modeling. This book is definitely a keeper!
