Waterstones Says

One of the most important and distinctive voices in YA fiction, Juno Dawson turns her forensic gaze upon the iniquities of the fashion industry in the emotionally searing Meat Market. Jana Novak is an ordinary girl from a London estate catapulted into the glamorous yet ultra-competitive world of high fashion. Exposed and vulnerable, Jana will discover that the glittering allure of modelling has a very definite dark side. 

Winner of the YA Book Prize 2020

Jana Novak's history sounds like a classic model cliche: tall and gangly, she's uncomfortable with her androgynous looks until she's unexpectedly scouted and catapulted to superstardom.

But the fashion industry is as grimy as it is glamorous. And there are unexpected predators at every turn.

Jana is an ordinary girl from a south London estate, lifted to unimaginable heights. But the further you rise, the more devastating your fall ...

Honest and raw, Meat Market is a timely expose of the dark underbelly of the fashion industry in an era of #TimesUp and #MeToo. It might just be Juno Dawson's most important book yet.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Dawson has a gift for writing believable teenagers characters, and Meat Market is a powerful counterweight to light-hearted literature that still portrays modelling as the stuff of dreams' - The Guardian 

'Juno Dawson slashes through the glamour of the fashion industry ... combining blockbuster appeal with piercing commentary on modelling, body image and consent' - The Observer

As a young teen, much like a lot of girls, I'd always looked at models and wanted to look like them and be 'perfect'. The industry had always seemed so glamorous and perfect, everyone's dream... More
