Contemporary Chick Lit
On paper, Bette Robinson's life is good. At twenty-six,
she's got a great deal on an apartment in Manhattan, and
she's on target to become an associate at the prestigious
investment bank where she works with her best friend. Her
eighty-hour workweeks might keep her from socializing or
dating outside her office walls -- but she's paying her
dues on the well-trod path to wealth and happiness. So when
Bette quits her job like the impulsive girl she's never
been, she not only shocks her friends and family -- she has
no idea what to do next.
For months, Bette gets out and about by walking her four-
pound dog around her decidedly unglamorous Murray Hill
neighborhood. Then she meets Kelly, head of Manhattan's
hottest PR and events planning firm, and suddenly Bette has
a brand-new job where the primary requirement is to see and
The work at Kelly & Company takes Bette inside the VIP
rooms of the city's most exclusive nightclubs, to parties
crowded with celebrities and socialites. Bette learns not
to blink at the famous faces, the black Amex cards, the
magnums of Cristal, or the ruthless paparazzi. Soon she's
dating an infamous playboy who's great for her career but
bad for her sanity -- and scaring off the one decent guy
she meets. Still, as her coworkers repeatedly point out,
how can you complain about a job that pays you to party?
Bette has to agree -- until she begins appearing in a
vicious new gossip column. That's when Bette's life on
paper takes on a whole new meaning -- and she learns the
line between her personal and professional lives
