Teenage boys like to turn to a certain type of literature. It is literature that deals with people outside the norm; this resonates with teenage feelings of not belonging anywhere. The literature is so much part of growing up, it has become a rite of passage. The let down for all teenagers is usually when they find out that their parents have read the exactly same books in their teenage years, too.
A modelling career may be the dream of many a beautiful teen boy. If you think it is easy money, then you should first read the interview with +Andrei Ries in absoluttomag (link here; in Portuguese). In it, the Brazilian actor and model was quite candid about how much work went into his career. He also stressed the deprivations of being apart from family and friends for long periods of time. If you are not prepared to work hard, to put up with being alone, and to live out of your suitcase, then look for something else to do.
