Review: Copygirl by Anna Mitchael & Michelle Sassa

o. You want to work in advertising. The glitz, the glamour, the cocktail-fueled brainstorming sessions and Xbox breaks. Sounds like a dream job, right?

Wrong. The reality can be a nightmare. There are five simple rules for succeeding in the ad world—and I think I’ve already broken every single one…

1) Never let them see you cry. Even if your best friend breaks your heart. And posts it all over social media.

2) Be one of the boys. And, if you were born with the wrong equipment, flaunt what you've got to distract them while you get ahead.

3) Come up with the perfect pitch in an instant—or have your resumé ready to go at all times.

4) Trust no one. Seriously. If you don't watch your back, they'll steal your ideas, your pride, even your stapler.

5) Most importantly, don’t ever, under any circumstances, be a CopyGirl.

Trust me. I know…

Terri's Thoughts

** I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is October 6, 2015**

This story started out slow for me however I warmed up to it at about the halfway point and was onboard to the finish line.  While not a story to take too seriously it played out like rom-com movie.  You know the type, girl likes boy & boy has girl stuck in the friend zone.  Girl trying to make it on her own in the big city etc etc..

While the idea of Copy girl was a little weird at first as I was essentially reading about a girl playing with dolls, it grew on me.  the minute it grew on me was when "copygirl" started to grow a backbone and stand up for herself.  At this point the story starts to take on a really good message.  One that I think is important for all women.  Don't be a copygirl!

Overall a pleasant read with a few laughs and a good message.
