Described as “Mad Men meets The Devil Wears Prada,” this book was obviously at the top of my list.  Kay works at a prestigious ad agency in New York City, an incredible opportunity.  But it’s hard being a girl in a sea of frat-boy office bros. At least she has her work partner Ben, a close friend from college who she’s also secretly in love with.  While the guys are off living the glamorous life of partying and girls, Kay is working hard to dream up the perfect pitches.  Lately though, her work just hasn’t been paying off, and her boss is breathing down her neck with threats of replacing her.  The last thing Kay wants is to be a copygirl, but things are going downhill fast.  Does she have what it takes to make it to the top?
