Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A young, sharply observed take on modern office life when all the possibilities of a degree landing you an excellent position are shattered by your first mundane job until suddenly the tide turns. This is very American but it is also very astute, good fun and lively page-turning stuff.

Comparison: Sophie Kinsella, Helen Fielding (Bridget Jones), Carole Matthews.
Similar this month: Plum Sykes, Sheila O’Flanagan.
