Item description for Breaking the Perfect 10 by Tracy Lindsey Melchior & Susan Wales...
Overview Tracy wanted life in the spotlight and all the glamour that comes with it. However, the pursuit of this life was not all she had bargained for. Even as she held the prize she thought she wanted, she felt an emptiness and despair in her spirit. In pursuit to become Hollywood's "perfect 10," Tracy Lindsey Melchior broke God's Perfect 10-the Ten Commandments. She broke every one of them. She was relentless in her pursuit of fame and fortune. However, little did she realize at the time, that she was being relentlessly pursued as well. God lovingly and gently sought after the heart of a sinner named Tracy. And Tracy was found, not shinning bright on the big screen but kneeling at the lowest point in her life when she lacked even the strength to look up. Breaking the Perfect 10 is a beautiful story of the power of Christ's forgiveness, patience, and love.
Publishers Description One woman's personal and triumphant journey through "Tinseltown" and into the loving arms of a Savior.

So much of myself.. Oct 12, 2006
Tracy's story really struck a nerve and I see so much of myself in her and her story. I do not believe she tried to sensationalize her life at all. She reveals warts and all and as far as other viewers questioning her bringing up her past sins because she is forgiven is absurd. The story needs to be about sins to show how much she needed a savior. The story needs to show the abuse to show how much she needed to forgive; the way Christ forgives us. I was just like Tracy a pretty picture on the outside strggling in the acting field, wanting acceptance and love because of the abuse and the hate I had on the inside.Making horrible decisions based on dysfunction. You would be suprised how many emotionally damaged individuals are insatiably drawn into this line of work. I commend Tracy for her brutal honesty,and her story that does have a powerful impact on believers and those who are struggling to find their way. I think she especially speaks to so many young women who are so much like her but by the power of Christ are given a second chance.
God is good. Mar 15, 2006
I got this book yesterday and read it from cover to cover last night. Reading about her childhood is in a word 'heartbreaking' and I could understand if she could still harbor ill feelings against her parents, I had to fight the urge to harbor ill feelings against her parents and I don't even know them. As to the comments that this is a tell all, to attack a fellow christian is shameful, and so "The Lord Rebuke You". This young lady has shown courage and a love for the unlost that obviously those who criticize her do not possess. This is yet another wonderful story of redemption and hope, and it is supported by bible scriptures throughout the book. Thank you for your book Tracy and welcome to the family.
For Tracy Lindsey Melchior fans Feb 10, 2006
At first glance, Tracy Lindsey Melchior appeared to have it all. An up and coming career that included roles on popular television shows, such as The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful, One Life to Live, Sunset Beach, and My So-Called Life, a supportive family, and a strong faith in God. Upon closer inspection many would be surprised to learn of the neglect that she endured throughout her childhood, the drug and alcohol abuse she struggled to overcome, and the promiscuous lifestyle she had to abandon in order to follow God.
Nevertheless, the book is unorganized and downright frustrating to read. It was disappointing to find that there was not much depth to the story, especially considering its vast potential. At various parts of the book, the author randomly inserts Bible passages that are not utilized well, but seemed to be included simply to take up space or to make the book sound religious. Most disturbing was that by the end, the reader is left with more questions than answers. This book offers nothing new: the main character may be different, but the storyline is like other books in its category. I would not recommend this book to anyone except Tracy Lindsey Melchior fans. -- Audrey Wagel, Christian Book Previews.com
A Profile in Courage - A Perfect 10 Bares All Nov 30, 2005
Tracy Lindsey Melchior is a gutsy lady. In telling her painful past and sharing her wondeful present, this amazingly attractive woman has gone and painted a big red target on her back and taken a walk in the shooting gallery of envy.
Tracy's bio is a rare look inside the life of a Hollywood hottie. Rarer still because its an honest, warts and all account with a happy ending. I could not put it down and now my wife and me have just one question - when's the movie?
By all means - buy this book!
Horrid Nov 30, 2005
I am Amanda Redding from Chicago, Ill. I must say, I find it plain wierd that people write 'tell all' books when they are Christians. But maybe Tracy Melchoir is hard up for cash? I so wish she had spent more time glorifying God instead of making a written record of all her sins. Someone please remind Tracy that once you're saved, your sins are tossed away as far as the east is from the west;they are no more. Yet she tells us them in sensational graphic detail. Why does Tracy and Susan Wales go fishing to reel them back and then serve it up for us to read? I bought this book thinking it would spiritually lift me, but it sank me. I am embarrassed for them both. By the way girls, I can recommend a good editor. You both need one! That's 2 hours of my life I'll never get back.
