**THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER**
A riveting, inspiring memoir from the star of Netflix´s My Unorthodox Life
´Haart is a hustler, a born entrepreneur, charismatic enough to attract investment like a pop ingenue attracts talent scouts and a fighter.´ POLLY VERNON, THE TIMES ´An irresistible read . . . Written with great intensity and rare candor, Brazen is a story of longing for more and manifesting that vision.´ TOMMY HILFIGER
Ever since she was a child, every aspect of Julia Haart´s life - what she wore, what she ate, what she thought - was controlled by the rules of ultra-Orthodox Judaism. At nineteen, after a lifetime spent caring for her seven younger siblings, she was married off to a man she barely knew.
But when she realises her daughters will be forced into the same unending servitude, Haart secretly starts preparing for a life beyond the confines of their Orthodox suburb - where she can pursue her ´sinful´ dreams designing clothes.
Propulsive and unforgettable, Brazen follows Haart´s extraordinary journey from an extreme religious sect to how she found freedom and success in the world of fashion.
´Julia lives her life with an exhilarating fervour that´s contagious to anyone lucky enough to be around her. Never willing to accept the status quo, time and again she has fought for her place in the world and demanded her seat at the table. I´m incredibly inspired by her stories, which are always told with honesty and heart. This book is a must read!´
´Julia Haart is a hustler. Her story is an inspiring, believe-in-your-dreams, never-give-up, anything-in-life-is-possible story of hope. Run, don´t walk, to get this book!´
