If you are going to read one book in 2011 - make it this! I am usually sceptical about celebrity autobiographies, however the pretentiousness and attitude which usually comes with them is a welcome absent in this book.
The supermodel gives an insight into the horrific conditions and experiences of refugees in the Sudan as well as painting a vividly beautiful picture of the landscape of the country pre war.
This is a woman who has grown up witnessing atrocities none of us could begin to even imagine.
It has also reminded me not to be so quick to judge.
Alek Wek - you are a strong glamourous star. You deserve your success!
