The return of Violet, the not-so- confident model?

Violet Greenfield knows she?s supposed to be a super-confident nineteen-year-old because she?s done runway shows in New York and internationally. But now that she?s finally headed to college, she?s afraid she?ll turn back into that girl who blended into the walls in high school. Vassar is just two hours away from New York City??her friends in fashion think she?s crazy to stop modeling now. And her old friend Roger is there...but things have been weird ever since they kissed. The real question is if she?s not going to be ?Violet on the Runway? anymore...who is she?

About the Author

She recently fulfilled a lifelong dream when she appeared as a talking-head "expert" on VH1's "The Fabulous Life of: Celebrity Kids."

Melissa lives in Brooklyn, New York, and has a BA in English from Vassar College. She would tell you her SAT scores, too, but, you know, the math part was hard.
