Description - Thin Skin by Emma Forrest
'My talents are: I knew what I wanted. I knew what I didn't want. I knew at a young age...I have the added advantage of scrubbing up nicely when I feel like it, so I look like I have range, when really I just have good skin.' At fifteen Ruby left home, got herself an agent and became a film star. Now twenty, she lives alone, in a world of hotels and fast food. Destructive and charming, cutting is Ruby's hobby. Her hair, her arms and occasional tattoos - her newest accessory is a bloodline necklace. A seductive blend of heroine and whore, she has left the man who loves her, been fired by her agent, and is starring in a film opposite the delectable Aslan. It is quite possibly her last chance. Striking, funny and razor sharp, Thin Skin is a novel in which we see that sometimes you have to look over the edge in order to see your way back.
