I read this book because I read some good reviews. They were right. I found this book delightful and insightful. This is a debut novel for Charity Shumway. Way to go Girl! It follow a young woman who has moved to New York City to become a writer. Dawn, the young woman, struggles to pay to rent, still misses her ex-boyfriend, and has a slug for a roommate. But she gets a temporary job at a magazine researching 50 years of women who have won the "Ten Girls To Watch" award at the magazine. As she talks to these women she gets insight that helps her turn her life around. It was a book I wanted to keep reading, and I underlined pieces of wisdom that I think will help me. It is a well-crafted book, and doesn't contain anything that should put anyone off. The author uses her life experiences as a basis for the story, which only makes it more real because she knows of what she speaks. Good book! I recommend it.
