It’s as if I am right there maneuvering my way through the streets of New York. The author of Devil Wears Prada Lauren Weisberger made me feel like I was in the big city trying to stay on task. A young girl fresh out of college named Andy ends up in a job one in a million girls would want. “Yes, the hours are long and the work is hard but it’s worth it, a million girls would want this job.”

The problem is, Miranda Priestly a high‐profile, cruel and fabulously successful editor of Runway magazine is impossible to please. Andy, quickly realizes after a long day of running impossible arenas, the only way to get her dream of being an editor for a fashion magazine is to last one year without getting fired. Instantly Miranda changes Any’s identity by giving her a makeover. Also she is now known as “Andrea” pronounced long and drawn out.

As you read through the book you will not be able to put the book down! You will instantly fall in love with Andy’s determined personality. She is young and a great inspiration too girls. This character demonstrates in order to get what you want you will have to work very hard and not give up. Overall, she had too be my favorite character. Andrea besides from trying too reach goals helps friend and makes many friend.

Miranda Priestly is the world’s worst boss. “Is there some reason that my coffee isn’t here? Has she died or something?” She expects the most from everyone. If it isn’t done they are fired. During the beginning of the book she tries to change Andrea’s profile from a small town girl to a high‐profile fashion assistant.

In the end the question is will she sustain the job with Miranda and not get fired? Will she get her dream? Will friendships and relationships last? Read this well written book and you’ll find out! The ending is unexpected and surprised me. If you like a great suspenseful and eager to read more book this is the book for you.
