Genuine happiness comes in different forms for different people. For Charli Howard, author of "Misfit," personal contentment finally came to her in a UK size 10.

When an off-beat beauty with hyper self-awareness, undiagnosed body dysmorphia, and on-going anxiety breaks into the modeling industry, it’s just a matter of time before an inevitable breakdown. Thus was the case for Charli, who chronicles the trajectory of her professional and personal journey with an authenticity and insightfulness that solidifies an incredibly relatable relationship with her reader.

After being fired by her London agency for being “too big” at a UK size 6 (US size 2), Charli’s life-long battle to abide by society’s standard of beauty reaches a breaking point. What happens next is a lesson about the power of self-love, inner-healing, and resilience.
