Non-Fiction Memoir | Non-Fiction Political
In 2012, Beck Dorey-Stein is working five part-time jobs and
just scraping by when a posting on Craigslist lands her,
improbably, in the Oval Office as one of Barack Obamaâ€™s
stenographers. The ultimate D.C. outsider, she joins the
elite team who accompany the president wherever he goes,
recorder and mic in hand. On whirlwind trips across time
zones, Beck forges friendships with a dynamic group of
fellow travelersâ€”young men and women who, like her, leave
their real lives behind to hop aboard Air Force One in
service of the president.
As she learns to navigate White House protocols and more
than once runs afoul of the hierarchy, Beck becomes
romantically entangled with a consummate D.C. insider, and
suddenly the political becomes all too personal.
Against the backdrop of glamour, drama, and intrigue, this
is the story of a young woman making unlikely friendships,
getting her heart broken, learning what truly matters, and,
in the process, discovering her voice.
