I read this a couple months ago and really enjoyed it. It's a novel about a 20-something named Nora, an editorial assistant at Parson Press. Initially, Nora thought the editorial assistant gig would be the first step towards her dream gig. However, she's been in the same job for 5 years, and her coworkers are slowly leaving. After getting the news that her bosses are cutting Nora's already unlivable salary, she decides to moonlight for a rival publisher to make ends meet. However, when a cute author is thrown into the mix, she has to decide where her loyalties lay. Used, $7.
