Stick lives in a small town in Texas: she's tall, thin, gawky, and has no ambition or future. Then she meets Nicky who is handsome, sophisticated and introduces her to love and danger. When Nicky is arrested and sent into the army, Stick flees to New York to find him but instead meets a photographer who is determined to make her famous. She changes her name to Zoe and becomes a supermodel sensation, conquering each city her cover-girl image reaches - and everyone who meets her falls in love with her. Suddenly Zoe has all the attention, money, fame and drugs a girl could want, but she doesn't have one thing: Nicky. Caught in a whirlwind, it seems as if Zoe will settle for the hollow pleasures of celebrity and glamour, until Nicky reappears, on the run.

Review quote

'This book is packed with guts, glamour, eye-popping humour, and turn after ironic turn. My question, where can I get more of this guy's books?' Dan Aykroyd 'Wittenborn says things about passion, ambition, and fame that most people are afraid to think ... an altogether original and sagacious work' Rolling Stone 'Told with great skill and style ... with a hip, cynical, clever attitude that keeps you flipping the pages' Los Angeles Times 'A phenomenon ... astonishingly wild, exciting and sexy ... Wittenborn's writing is vibrant ... much too marvellous to put down. Read it!' Philadelphia Inquirer
