Model: A Memoir

By Cheryl Diamond


Models are airheads, dumb blondes, idiots.  Cheryl Diamond is a model, but yet, she doesn’t fall under any of these categories.  At the young age of 16, she leaves her home to make her way in the modeling world—aka, New York City.  Amazingly, she survives, and with flying colors too.  Booking jobs, receiving calls… and all with a quirky sense of humor.  Cheryl Diamond herself takes us through her making it in the Big Apple, her fall, and her amazing comeback. 


This book really surprised me.  I feel kind of stupid, really.  Cheryl Diamond is one of the freshest, funniest, and most interesting authors I’ve read in awhile.  She gives blondes a good name (to which I am eternally grateful).  I laughed out loud numerous times while reading this.  I felt like I was there while reading it… and the book gave me a better appreciation for the modeling business.  One thing is for sure—Cheryl Diamond knows her stuff, and she is not an airhead, idiot, or dumb blonde.  Two thumbs way up. 


Scale (1-10): 10



  1. I saw a video interview with her at the YA Mansion; she did seem really intelligent. I’ve got this one on my to-read list.

  2. So are you blonde? I am. I still love blonde jokes.

  3. I loved this book! Thanks for reviewing it so other people can see what a great book this is!
