From the author of The Balance Project comes a
dual-timeline narrative featuring a 1949 Miss Subways
contestant and a modern-day advertising executive whose
careers and lives intersect.
In 1949, dutiful and
ambitious Charlotte's dream of a career in advertising is
shattered when her father demands she help out with the
family business. Meanwhile, Charlotte is swept into the
glamorous world of the Miss Subways beauty contest, which
promises irresistible opportunities with its Park Avenue
luster and local fame status. But when her new friend—the
intriguing and gorgeous fellow-participant Rose—does
something unforgivable, Charlotte must make a
heart-wrenching decision that will change the lives of those
around her forever.
Nearly 70 years later, outspoken
advertising executive Olivia is pitching the NYC subways
account in a last ditch effort to save her job at an
advertising agency. When the charismatic boss she's
secretly in love with pits her against her misogynistic
nemesis, Olivia's urgent search for the winning strategy
leads her to the historic Miss Subways campaign. As the
pitch date closes in on her, Olivia finds herself dealing
with a broken heart, an unlikely new love interest, and an
unexpected personal connection to Miss Subways that could
save her job—and her future.
Girls is the charming story of two strong women, a
generation apart, who find themselves up against the same
eternal struggle to find an impossible balance between love,
happiness, and ambition.
