Content descriptions

General Note: Subtitle from jacket.
Summary, etc.: "During the heady years of the tech boom, incorrigibly frank Sophia Young lucks into a job that puts her directly in the path of Scott Kraft, the eccentric CEO of Treehouse, a studio whose animated films are transforming movies forever. Overnight, Sophia becomes an unlikely nerd whisperer. As Scott Kraft's right-hand woman, whip-smart Sophia is in the eye of the storm, sometimes floundering, sometimes nearly losing relationships and her health, but ultimately learning what it means to take charge of her own future the way the men around her do. But when engineer/inventor Andre Stark hires her to run his company's investor relations, Sophia discovers that the big paycheck and high-status career she's created for herself may not be worth living in the toxic environment of a boys-club gone bad"--

    As the youngest daughter of Taiwanese immigrants, Sophia is expected to live at home until she gets married, even though her no-nonsense attitude, mostly learned from her mother, has landed her a lucrative gig working for Scott Kraft, the eccentric genius founder of a tech company and a thinly veiled Steve Jobs. Her success at work hasn't translated to her personal life, and she longs to find a partner who won't be threatened by her career or her overprotective parents. It's all a balancing act that Sophia cannot maintain forever, and indeed, her long hours and stress threaten her relationships and lead to a serious health scare. Debut novelist Yen's years of working with multiple tech companies provide a real insider's peek at the craziness of the industry while still keeping it light. This is Silicon Valley chick lit with a smart and smart-ass heroine trying to "have it all," and readers of books like Elisabeth Egan's A Window Opens (2015) and Allison Pearson's I Don't Know How She Does It (2002) will enjoy this modern take.
