About this product
- Description<b>A funny and uplifting debut vel about stumbling through the early years of adulthood while taking (or t taking) the advice of the women who've gone before you.</b><b>A radiant debut vel about stumbling through the early years of adulthood<i>-- </i>and a love letter to the role models who light the way. </b> Like so many other recent graduates, Dawn West is trying to make her way in New York City. She's got an ex-boyfriend she can't quite stop seeing, a roommate who views rent checks and basic hygiene as optional, and a writing career that's gotten as far as penning an online lawn care advice column. So when Dawn lands a job tracking down the past winners of <i>Charm </i>magazine's Ten Girls to Watch contest, she's thrilled. After all, she's being paid to interview hundreds of fascinating women: once outstanding college students, they have gone on to become mayors, opera singers, and air force pilots. As Dawn gets to kw their life stories, she'll discover that success, love, and friendship can be found in the most unexpected of places. Most importantly, she'll learn that while those who came before us can be role models, ultimately, we each have to create our own happy ending.
