a satire about an American girl with a college degree in search of the perfect job...some parts are really funny and I could picture people I have met in the professional world as some of the characters...by the authors of The Nanny Diaries

This is the story of Girl navigating her way through getting a start in Corporate America after college graduation. While over the top with some horrendous bosses, the experiences ring true on many levels and answers that burning question of 'what am I willing to compromise for a job in order to pay the bills?'

Hard to follow and understand at times. I got so angry at the main character for allowing everyone to walk all over her, and not saying anything. I was not impressed!

I found this hard to get into - the characters weren't engaging and I skimmed the last part of the book.

Good book for anybody who love The Nanny Diaries or Devil Wears Prada. This book deals with a girl reporter trying to make good in the big city.

I knew from the first page this book was going to be a dud, but I read until about page 120 before I packed it in. I loved both the "Nanny" books as well as "Dedication" but this book was a definite miss. This book was boring, lacked direction and even got confusing at times (one second she's in a room and the next standing out on the street, wait...what?) I didn't care about "Girl" (it's hard to connect to someone with no name- I hope the authors stop this practice of the generic naming, it worked in Nanny Diaries, it failed miserably here!) Now I know why I waited so long to pick up this book, I should have listened to everyone who told me how awful it was!
