Product Description

In December 2011, 21-year-old Victoria’s Secret Runway Angel Kylie Bisutti stunned the fashion industry when she chose faith over fame and fortune and made the switch from supermodel to role model.

In I’m No Angel, Kylie shares her story—from her early years struggling to make it big in the cut-throat world of modeling, her “big break” winning the Victoria’s Secret Runway Angel competition, and the disillusionment and spiritual warfare that followed, to the moment she realized that she could no longer reconcile her career with her Christian beliefs, surrendered her life to God, and dedicated her life to preaching a message of modesty and inner beauty.

Along the way, Kylie talks about her personal struggles with inadequacy, low self-esteem, and her near-constant quest for approval in a world where you can never be thin enough, pretty enough, or sexy enough. She helps readers understand that true beauty lies within and that real fulfillment comes from knowing, loving, and serving Christ.

This book takes you through Kylie Bisutti's modeling career and relationship with God. Sometimes I found her words to be a little too descriptive for my comfort, but she's describing the lingerie modeling world.

What a neat story! So awesome to read!

For years Kylie pursued her dream of being a supermodel, and she finally made it big when she won the Victoria's Secret Runway Angel competition. To get to the top, though, she had to make compromises, put herself in dangerous situations, and lose weight in unhealthy ways. In her book, "I'm No Angel," Kylie exposes some of the lies and harsh realities of the modeling industry. More importantly, Kylie tells the story of how she realized that her modeling work was not glorifying to the Lord or honoring to her husband. When she came to this realization, she left lingerie modeling immediately, and eventually left modeling altogether. Her desire now is to honor the Lord, be a Proverbs 31 wife, and be a good role model to girls. Kylie shares her story with openness and honesty. It was a blessing to read about what the Lord has done in her life. I look forward to reading more books from her in the future.

This book had to take a lot of courage to write, but I'm so glad that Kylie did! We look at the modeling industry and see glamour, but Kylie shows us the flip-side of it. I appreciated her honesty, and I think this book would be particularly great for teen girls.
