Book: Everyone Worth Knowing

This is what I definitely call "light reading" or "chick lit." It's fun because it's the kind of story where the reader gets to see what life is like for someone else, the kind of life you imagine is glamorous and desirable.

In Weisberger's earlier book, The Devil Wears Prada, the reader (or movie-watcher later) could see what it was like to work at a famous fashion magazine. In this title, the reader learns what it's like to be the "it" girl, a life where the lines between work and personal or blurred because it's your job to organize parties, and see and be seen at Manhattan's hottest clubs.

In both books, the reader learns that these kind of lifestyles may not be all they are cracked up to be, and it's a fun read along the way. I did like this one better than Prada, primarily because although there are villainous characters, they are not as remotely evil as Weisberger's Miranda Priestly.
