Yes, we've all seen the movie, but the book is just as good, and full of juicy details about the sordid underbelly of fashion magazine life. Weisberger's novel follows the trials of Andrea, a Midwestern girl newly arrived in Manhattan and working as the assistant to the editor-in-chief of Runway magazine. As Andrea climbs up the Runway ladder, the rest of her life begins to fall apart. But are the glamor and the free clothes really worth it?
