Publisher's Summary

One of the most outspoken voices gracing the cover of magazines today encourages women to be their most confident selves, recognize their personal beauty, and reach for their highest dreams in this wise, warm, and inspiring memoir.

Voluptuous beauty Ashley Graham has been modeling professionally since the age of 13. Discovered at a shopping mall in Nebraska, her stunning face and sexy curves have graced the covers of top magazines, including Cosmopolitan and British Vogue, and she was the first size 14 model to appear on the front of the wildly popular Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. The face of brands such as H&M Studio, she is also a judge for the latest season of America's Next Top Model. And that's only the beginning for this extraordinary talent.

Ashley is leading a new generation of women breaking ground and demolishing stereotypes, transforming our ideals about body image and what is fashionable and beautiful. A woman who proves that when it comes to beauty, size is just a number, she is the voice for the body positivity movement today and a role model for all women - no matter their individual body type, shape, or weight.

In this collection of insightful, provocative essays, Ashley shares her perspective on how ideas around body image are evolving - and how we still have work to do; the fun - and stress - of a career in the fashion world; her life before modeling; and her path to accepting her size without limiting her dreams - defying rigid industry standards and naysayers who told her it couldn't be done. As she talks about her successes and setbacks, Ashley offers support for every woman coming to terms with who she is - bolstering her self-confidence and motivating her to be her strongest, healthiest, and most beautiful self.

    Story
    "Pretty Good"

    The book touched on some insecurities that I believe all woman have, but brought a lot of confidence with it. She made me feel more confident. She touched on some of the issues that I have with food and made me realize that as much as I say this, I do need to eat better than ever before. It's very empowering to see a plus size woman with that confidence in herself. Hopefully some can rub off on me :).

    "Overall, a good read!"

    I enjoyed the book, it had inspirational moments, as well as, Ashley's backstory. I was expecting the book to be something different, but I still enjoyed and would recommend to any woman.

    "The whole experience"

    It was OK. I enjoyed the narrator but the story was not as captivating as I expected.
