Never Mind My Thigh Gap
“One ordinary girl, one extraordinary moment”
There are three things everyone notices about Alice.
1. Her super-hot rugby boyfriend.
2. Her sophisticated, totally gorgeous best friend.
3. Her very noticeable 38-inch long legs.
Alice is tall—just under six feet to be exact—but her self-esteem couldn’t be smaller. When her relationship starts wavering, Alice’s perfectly beautiful best friend somehow convinces her to join a modeling completion for “a confidence boost.” But Alice is just a normal girl. She loves Ben and Jerry’s too much, has an unhealthy addiction to 90210, and lusts after the elusive thigh gap. She can’t even walk in heels, let alone in a bikini, but she finds herself joining Runaway Model anyway.
The finale is only a few months away.
Will Alice catwalk her way to self-confidence or prove everyone right?
People can surprise you.

In 2012 Bronte was getting disillusioned with the constant remarks of her being too skinny and the Dove’s Real Woman campaign.
She just couldn’t understand how people could cite one body type as being more “real” than another. And why did she constantly get asked if she was eating enough?
Since when had slim been seen as unhealthy and bad and not seen as real?
Bronte’s real body shape was slim; why did that make her unreal?
Instead of sitting back and taking the skinny abuse, Bronte decided to stand up for herself, and use the REAL body she has been blessed with to enter a model competition, in which she became a finalist!
The competition was a truly empowering experience for Bronte, helping her not only to gain confidence, but also to start to feel comfortable in her own body and stop feeling like she had to make apologies for being skinny.
Bronte’s words for young girls are, “Real bodies come in ALL shapes and sizes and all should be celebrated. We cannot say one is real and one is not. Too many girls are growing up in today’s society believing that in order to achieve happiness and success they have to achieve perfection in their appearance. This leads to girls striving to become something or someone they’re not, instead of accepting who they REALLY are.”
The novel came out of her desire to share with other girls her experiences. Slim girls suffer from body issues too and it isn’t how you look on the outside that really matters, but who you want to be and whom you believe you are on the inside.
