Caught in A LieBook - 2000
Fourteen-year-old Kim hates school, but she's sure her good looks and great fashion sense will get her out of her boring life and into a world of glamour! All she can think about is becoming a model. Why can't she ace school tests the way she handles the friendship and dating quizzes in her favourite fashion magazines? How will studying help her escape the kind of boring life her parents lead? Why will she need school once she gets a lucrative modeling job? By the time Kim discovers that all the glamour is just hype, she has lied to teachers and her parents, raided her "untouchable" education bank account, alienated her best friend, lost her boyfriend, and been caught shoplifting. A true-to-life look at what a teenager encounters as she becomes obsessed with her image, Caught in a Lie traces Kim's growth to understanding.
