            Everyone should read this book - ModelTypeFace A thoughtful, honest and articulate voice - The Observer Witty - The Sun Packed full of honesty and insight - Dr Radha So, how did a slightly bonkers misfit with anorexia, bulimia and anxiety decide to solve their problems? I became ...a model. As you do. Charli Howard had always wanted to be normal - but for some reason, she couldn't quite find out how to do it. As a teenager, she felt like the only one who struggled with anxiety and self-esteem issues when everyone around her seemed to fit in. So she tried to embrace standing out: by becoming a model. Believing it would make her happy and envied, she set out single-mindedly to make it - and she achieved her dream. But the reality wasn't quite as glamorous as she'd hoped. The pressure on Charli to look a certain way took an extreme toll on her body and self-image, and no matter how thin she got, she was never thin enough. When Charli, though medically underweight, was fired by her modelling agency for being too big, she decided she'd had enough. She used her platform for good and spoke out about the insane standards of the modelling industry, whose images influence young women and girls all over the world. Now, Charli is comfortable in her skin for the first time ever, working happily as a plus sized model in New York. Here, she shares her journey, from anorexic and bulimic teenager to happy, healthy twenty-something.

            Kate Pankhurst, descendent of Emmeline Pankhurst, is back with another 'smart, informative, inclusive and accessible' book about women who have trail-blazed a cause.* In this case, it's the mission to respect and protect the environment. From deep in the ocean, around the Antarct...ic to the heart of a Tanzanian forest, women throughout history have made discoveries that have shown us just how amazing the Earth is and why we should look after it. Read about how Antarctic researcher Edith Farkas helped identify the hole in the Ozone Layer and made the whole world realise the effect of pollution and how Daphne Sheldrick's love for wildlife inspired her to care for young elephants who had been orphaned in the wild. In the Gambia, Isatou Ceesay is spreading the message about the damaging consequences of plastic waste and educates women in local communities about recycling. In the UK, Anita Roddick led the charge for ethical consumerism when she opened her cosmetics store, The Body Shop in 1976. From the brilliant author of Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World, which has sold over 200,000 copies. Written in Kate's engaging and playful style with brilliant facts, Fantastically Great Women Who Saved the Planet is a fantastic introduction to just a few of the women whose work and activisim has shaped the world we live in. *Fiona Noble, The Bookseller, 17th November 2017.
