This was a good novel about women taking control of their lives and succeeding in achieving their dreams. I definitely recommend this to book clubs, and to those women struggling with achieving their dreams.

Dawn West is barely getting by in New York, she is completely broke, living with a dead beat roommate, and dealing with her ex boyfriend and his new flame, Lily. Not only that she is writing a column on lawn care for 11 cents a word. However, things change in the employment realm when she meets Charm's magazine owner, Regina. She is given a job for the 50th anniversary of the Ten Girls to Watch contest. She is told she must find all the previous contestants and get bios on them. As Dawn talks to these amazing women it gives her hope to accomplish her dream of becoming a writer. Dawn deals with a lot of mental anguish in this novel, but in the end she learns a lot about herself and finds friends in the most unexpected places.
