Jana Novak's history sounds like a classic model clich? tall and gangly, she's uncomfortable with her androgynous looks until she's unexpectedly scouted and catapulted to superstardom. But the fashion industry is as grimy as it is glamorous. And there are unexpected predators at every turn. Jana is an ordinary girl from a south London estate, lifted to unimaginable heights. But the further you rise, the more devastating your fall.
Meat Market is an honest yet fictional look at real problems faced in the fashion industry by models. This is an industry which is often glamourised by the media, but Juno Dawson sends a powerful message in this book to its readers about body image and the reality of the fashion industry. Meat Market covers various topics such as feminism, body image, bullying and eating disorders, which are extremely relevant in today's society. Tackling the many flaws of this toxic world, it picks up on ideas of self-image relatable to many teens today. So is modelling as glamorous as it really seems?...A great YA read!
