~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis (from Amazon): So. You want to work in advertising. The glitz, the glamour, the cocktail-fueled brainstorming sessions and Xbox breaks. Sounds like a dream job, right?

Wrong. The reality can be a nightmare. There are five simple rules for succeeding in the ad world—and I think I’ve already broken every single one…

1) Never let them see you cry. Even if your best friend breaks your heart. And posts it all over social media.

2) Be one of the boys. And, if you were born with the wrong equipment, flaunt what you've got to distract them while you get ahead.

3) Come up with the perfect pitch in an instant—or have your resumé ready to go at all times.

4) Trust no one. Seriously. If you don't watch your back, they'll steal your ideas, your pride, even your stapler.

5) Most importantly, don’t ever, under any circumstances, be a CopyGirl.

Trust me. I know…

One (or more) Sentence Summary:  Kay is a very smart and talented copygirl.  I was so mad at how some people treated her in the beginning of the book.  As we start to cheer Kay on, she becomes an extremely important part of a team and the advertising firm she works for.  She stands up breaks that glass ceiling.  I was in Kay's corner from the beginning and so happy with the ending.

Favorite Character(s):  Suit is my favorite character.  I loved that he stuck it out and continued to pursue Kay.  He believed in her as person first and her talents second.

Setting:  New York City, one of my favorite cities!

Fast read/slow read:  Copygirl started out on the slower side for me, and turned into a quick read about a third of the way.
