that did happen, she reminds herself,
she'd lose the pleasure of killing Miranda

After graduating from Brown with a

degree in English she blankets the magazine
publishing industry with her résumé, hoping
to land enough experience somewhere and
eventually get a job.
“A million girls would kill for
your job.”

Mistakenly and sometimes

deliberately calls her Emily

“Boss from hell"

She christens this attitude the
“Runway Paranoid Turnaround”.

Stick it out working for Miranda

for a year, she can have her pick of
jobs in the magazine industry

“Missing one meal won't hurt, and

anyway, $2000 pants don't look so
hot on a fat girl”.

She keeps going, thinking that it

will all be worthwhile when she
gets a job at the New Yorker.
Emily gets mononucleosis and Andrea must take her place
accompanying Miranda to the fashion weekend in Paris.

Miranda finally lets down her guard a little bit and asks Andrea
about her future plans.

daughters expired passports in time for them to catch their flight,
in three hours time.

Andrea finally realizes that her family and friends are more
important than her job, and realizes that she is becoming more
and more like Miranda.

A sharp surprisingly funny excursion into the catty realm of

women’s magazine. -los angeles times

Weisberger's characters are all uniformly shallow and two-

dimensional, and she seems to be worshiping this lifestyle at the
same time that she is supposedly skewering it.- Kathleen Hughes
