Summary, etc.:
"A heartfelt and exciting debut...a wise and honest story of how it feels to be a young woman in search of yourself."--Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Timesbestselling author of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugoand Malibu Rising The Bookish Life of Nina Hillmeets Youngerin a heartfelt debut following a young woman who discovers she'll have to ditch the "dream job" and write her own story to find her happy ending. Meet Nora Hughes--the overworked, underpaid, last bookish assistant standing. At least for now. When Nora landed an editorial assistant position at Parsons Press, it was her first step towards The Dream Job. Because, honestly, is there anything dreamier than making books for a living? But after five years of lunch orders, finicky authors, and per my last emails, Nora has come to one grand conclusion: Dream Jobs do not exist. With her life spiraling and the Parsons staff sinking, Nora gets hit with even worse news. Parsons is cutting her already unlivable salary. Unable to afford her rent and without even the novels she once loved as a comfort, Nora decides to moonlight for a rival publisher to make ends meet...and maybe poach some Parsons' authors along the way. But when Andrew Santos, a bestselling Parsons author no one can afford to lose is thrown into the mix, Nora has to decide where her loyalties lie. Her new Dream Job, ever-optimistic Andrew, or...herself and her future. Your next book club read touching on mental health, happiness, and the peaks and perils of being a young woman just trying to figure it all out. Nora Hughes is the perfect heroine for anyone looking to get past their own chapter twenty-something and build their storybook life. "A tender reflection on finding your person while you're still desperately searching for yourself."--KJ Dell'Antonia, New York Timesbestselling author of The Chicken Sisters "A book for book lovers... It's impossible not to root for Nora!"--Jesse Q. Sutanto, National Bestselling author of Dial A for Aunties"-- Provided by publisher.
