Publisher's Summary

When frumpy Jo Hill lands a position as a PA at Gloss magazine, it's the job of her dreams - but it soon becomes a nightmare.As a mousy secretary with a passion for giant bags of Maltesers and comfy shoes, Jo doesn't fit in at the uber-chic office. Her boss humiliates her, her colleagues bitch about her, and even the receptionist ignores her. Though Jo might be overweight and overlooked, she's different in other ways too. She's bright, ambitious, and smart, and what's more, she has a plan. By the time she's finished, the magazine world - and Joshua - won't know what's hit them.

SECOND CHANCE

THIS BOOK WAS ONE OF SEVERAL BOOKS SITTING IN MY LIBRARY THAT JUST TOOK UP SPACE. I DIDNT LIKE THE NARRATORS VOICE OR THE OTHER CHARACTORS.WHEN I READ THE DESCRIPTION I REALLY LIKE IT AND THOUGHT WHY NOT. THEN I FOUND OUT THE BOOK IS BASED IN LONDON (WHICH MEANS ACCENT). I REALLY WASNT IN THE MOOD FOR THAT AND WOULD HAVE NEVER GIVEN IT A CHACE BECAUSE OF IT. DECIDED I WANTED MY MONEY BACK TO GET ANOTHER BOOK. AFTER I LISTENED TO EVERYTHING IN MY LIBRARY I CAME BACK TO THE MAKING OF MIA. I WAS REALLY SHOCKED THAT I ENJOYED THE BOOK. THE AUTHOR REALLY DID A GREAT JOB WRITING IT. ONCE YOU GET PAST THE FIRST 2-3 CHAPTERS IT WAS REALLY HARD TO TAKE A BREAK FROM IT. I LOVED THE ENDING. THIS BOOK MIGHT NOT HAVE BEEN MY FIRST CHOICE BUT I AM COMPLETLY SATICEFIED WITH IT AND WILL BE LISTENING TO IT AGAIN IN A FEW MONTHS OR SO. I GIVE IT 4 OTU OF 5.

Mia is a great read

This is a well thought out, well written look at the glossy magazine industry and the effect that the glossies can have on their readers...and the grass is not always greener on the other side!
