I love this book. It is a typical fresh out of college find yourself story. I love reading about the different designers and what it takes to work in fashion. Andy has her work cut out for her working for miranda, but she still manages to have a good time doing it. Not only is there work drama there is family/friends/boyfriend drama. It is all tied together wonderfully. I highly reccommend this to any one who needs a good laugh.

I love this book. I love how this girl gets thrown into the real world and does not have a clue. I enjoyed watching her learn all this fashion stuff and how to put it to use. My favorite part is the "devil" herself. She is a good person who has just had everything given to her and does not know better. I don't really like that the friendships that the girl has had since college are almost ruined by this woman though. Other than that I would reccomend this book to anyone who likes the fashion world and wants a good laugh.

Andrea Sachs has a job a million girls would die for - and it's hell. She's the junior assisstant of Miranda Priestly, editor of the famous fashion magazine Runway. Andie wants to be a writer, and is told that if she works for Miranda for a year, then she can basically have her pick of jobs. But Miranda is extremely over demanding, and Andie's life outside of work is pretty much kaput. Miranda calls Andie from Paris to tell her that her driver is missing, and Andie better find him - now. No matter how implausible the task may seem, Miranda expects Andie to do everything for her. Andie keeps reminding herself that it's only for a year, and then she'll get a great job, but she's not sure if she'll live to see the end of that year. The plot got slightly repetative, but overall it was a good book.

I really really liked this book. It was very amusing. You'll love it if you like the Shopaholic series, Meg Cabot books, and the Bergdorf Blondes book. This is about Andrea Sachs, a small town girl who is out to find a job as a writer. But the first thing that comes along is a job as persoanl assistant to Miranda Priestly at Runway magazine. She hopes to get a job at the New Yorker after a year, but she doesn't think she can wait that long when her boss is so incredibly demanding, rude, mean, and uncaring. Everyone fears Miranda (and hates, but is also fascinated, by her). Andrea lives her whole life on the beck-and-call of Miranda, doing neary impossible, pointless tasks just to make her boss happy. Is this really worth it? Especially when her best friend, boyfriend, and family memebers are starting to get annoyed and fed up with Andrea. They never see her anymore and hardly speak with her.
The tasks that Andrea does at the office are hilarious. It's almost like an adventure. I enjoyed it alot. It was a real escapist read and I recommend it to anyone who loves designer clothes but hate their bosses. Tee hee! Read this book, teenaged girls!
