Alex Garriet has dreamed about following into her father’s footsteps and one day working in Wall Street. She graduates college and lands a prestigious internship at Cromwell Pierce’s sales floor, but she is not prepared for the reality of life on “The Street.” This is not a normal working environment. It’s the high octane, big money, world of finance where everything seems to happen at warp speed. People run down halls, shout instead of speak and pass the time playing fraternity type jokes on each other.
To become one of the team she must suck it up and play by the boys’ rules. Forget a desk, her first assignment is to take a folding chair and peer over colleague’s shoulders as they work. The rules of the game – ask questions but try not to annoy anyone, at all cost keep the chair out of the aisle and fulfill every crazy request as low man on the totem pole. And whatever you do, don’t date any of your coworkers. She is determined to prove herself.
Bring giant cheese wheel in a cab from the
Bronx – no problem. Carry and dole out three hundred pizzas daily – got it. Try to resist the very cute guy at work flirting with you every chance he gets in person and via email – not so easy.
Will Alex be able to maneuver through this circus and secure herself a position? More important can she tame the office cutie and morph him into a proper boyfriend?
I really enjoyed following Alex along on her journey through Wall Street. The book was fast paced and, at times, laugh-out-loud funny. It’s not a traditional romance and, as with most chick lit, the romance is a subplot of the book and not the main plot. But if you dig chick lit then don’t miss out on this truly fascinating and hilarious peek into the financial world of Wall Street.
