When other little girls were dreaming about becoming
doctors or lawyers, Alex Garrett set her sights on
conquering the high-powered world of Wall Street. And
while she's prepared to fight her way into an elitist
boys' club, or duck the occasional errant football, she
quickly realizes she's in over her head when she is
relegated to a kiddie-sized folding chair with her new
moniker—Girlie—inscribed in whiteout across the back. No
matter. She’s determined she's got the stamina to make it
in bond sales at Cromwell Pierce, one of The Street’s most
esteemed brokerage firms. Keeping her eyes on the prize,
she’ll endure whatever menial, degrading tasks come her
way—trekking to the Bronx for $1,000 wheels of Parmesan
cheese, discovering a secretary’s secret Friday night
dance party in the conference room; fielding a constant
barrage of "friendly" practical jokes, learning to ropes
from her unpredictable, slightly scary, loyalty demanding
boss; even babysitting a colleague while he consumes the
entire contents of a vending machine on a $28,000 bet.
Ignoring her friends’ pleas to quit, Alex excels (while
learning how to roll with the punches and laugh at
herself) and soon advances from lowly analyst to slightly-
less-lowly associate. Suddenly, she’s addressed by her
real name and the impenetrable boys’ club has transformed
into thirty-eight older brothers and one possible
boyfriend. Then The Apocalypse hits. As her life on The
Street falls into the depths of intolerable cruelty—both
personally and professionally—Alex is forced to choose
between sticking with Cromwell Pierce as it teeters on the
brink of disaster and kicking off her Jimmy Choos to run
for higher ground.
