52 reasons to hate my father – Jessica Brody

Being America’s favorite heiress is a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it.

Lexington Larrabee has never to work a day in her life. After all, she’s the heiress to the multi-billion-dollar Larrabee Media empire. And heiresses are not supposed to work. But then again, they’re not supposed to crash brand new Mercedes convertibles into convenience stores on Sunset Blvd either.

Which is why, on Lexi’s eighteen birthday, her ever-absent, tycoon father decides to take a more proactive approach to her wayward life. Every week for the next year, she will have to take on a different low-wage job if she ever wants to receive her beloved trust fund. But if there’s anything worse than working as a maid, a dishwasher, and a fast-food restaurant employee, it’s dealing with Luke, the arrogant, albeit moderately attractive, college intern her father has assigned to keep tabs on her.

The devil wears Prada – Lauren Weisberger

Most recent college grads know they have to start at the bottom and work their way up. But not many picture themselves having to pick up their boss’s dry cleaning, deliver them hot lattes, land them copies of the newest Harry Potter book before it hits stores and screen potential nannies for their children. Charmingly unfashionable Andrea Sachs, upon graduating from Brown, finds herself in this precarious position: she’s an assistant to the most revered-and hated-woman in fashion, Runway editor-in-chief Miranda Priestly. The self-described “biggest fashion loser to ever hit the scene,” Andy takes the job hoping to land at the New Yorker after a year. As the “lowest-paid-but-most-highly-perked assistant in the free world,” she soon learns her Nine West loafers won’t cut it-everyone wears Jimmy Choos or Manolos-and that the four years she spent memorizing poems and examining prose will not help her in her new role of “finding, fetching, or faxing” whatever the diabolical Miranda wants, immediately.
