Review quote

"Here's what happens when girl power storms Mad Men....Wickedly funny and smartly sweet....A high-octane, electric look at Madison Avenue craziness from a pair who've been there and done that."--Publishers Weekly "Copygirl is my new girl crush. Always looking to discover more Cool Funny Working Girl Heroines. A great, great read."--Lucy Sykes, bestselling coauthor of The Knockoff "The authors paint an agency world in which you see... how the not-so subtle bro-ism of an ad agency starts to shut out women (and some men!)...A great ride."--Advertising Age Magazine "Downright fresh modern chick-lit...Filled with depth, honesty, mishaps, witty banter, and a colorful cast of characters."--Manhattan Book Review "A character readers will want to root for as she learns how to get her footing in a world that isn't necessarily interested in helping her out."--Library Journal "This modern twist on Mad Men is engaging, interesting, and most importantly, funny as hell. Copygirl is the book that will turn your wine club back into a book club."--Sarah Bird, author of Above the East China Sea "We loved Copygirl--it bursts off the page with its witty narrative and sly observations."--Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke, co-authors of The Status of All Thingsshow more
