Summary [from the book]:

Seventeen-year-old Chrissy Gibbons has landed her dream job—a summer internship at her favorite magazine, Savvy. Being an intern is hard work, but the job becomes a lot more fun when Chrissy is befriended by a glamorous fashion editor who takes her to all the best parties. As the summer winds down, though, Chrissy realizes that in the whirlwind of parties and boys, she’s been neglecting what could be her big break in the magazine business: an opportunity to compete against other interns to become Savvy’s first teen columnist.
Chrissy struggles to come up with a winning subject for her column—and in the process, she discovers what is most important to her.

My review:

I think this was pretty good. When I first go the request to read this book, I was like, "Oh, lord. Basically a biography." And I was freaking out because I wasn't sure I'd like it. It took me a little while to get into, but once I did I really liked it. Magazine internships sound a little like fun and hell in the same package. I'm glad Chrissy ended up getting it in the end. This isn't really my type of book, but I really enjoyed it. I recommend it for anyone interested in this type of book and who isn't. It's not written like a biography, like I expected. You can't even tell it is one!
Mrs. Messina did a lovely job telling Chrissy's story.

My rating:


A note:

Hi everyone! I'm sorry I've been gone for so long. I've been really busy. I finished this book a few days ago, but just now had a change to update the RS. I'm almost done with my next book, so look out for my next review! :)
