Kate's To-Do List:

Go to rehab Befriend/spy on "It Girl" Write killer expose Land dream job

Piece of cake

When Kate Sandford lands an interview at her favorite music magazine, The Line, it's the chance of a lifetime. So Kate goes out to celebrate--and shows up still drunk to the interview the next morning. It's no surprise that she doesn't get the job, but her performance has convinced the editors that she'd be perfect for an undercover assignment for their gossip rag. All Kate has to do is follow "It Girl" Amber Sheppard into rehab. If she can get the inside scoop--and complete the thirty-day program--they'll reconsider her for the position at The Line. Kate takes the assignment, but when real friendships start to develop, she has to decide if what she has to gain is worth the price she'll have to pay.

Review by Library Journal (2012-02-01)

Katie Sandford, a perpetually broke freelancer, completely botches the job interview of a lifetime by showing up halfway between being drunk and hungover. After a week long pity party (and lots more drinking), she's tentatively hired by the parent company of the magazine where she is dying to work. The catch: she has to go to rehab to get the dish on a young actress also working the 12 steps.

There are a few minor plot inconsistencies, but McKenzie's descriptive prose flows so smoothly that it's easy for readers to get drawn into her story. The characters are easily imagined and well thought out. Watching Katie realize she has a drinking problem will make her seem quite real to readers, and she's a sufficiently self-aware heroine to comment wryly on her life's likeness to a romantic comedy without seeming overly ridiculous.

Verdict: Making her U.S. debut, Canadian author McKenzie introduces a modern literary heroine who will remind readers of Sophie Kinsella's "Shopaholic" protagonist: flawed but compelling. Buy this slightly uneven but compulsively readable novel for your contemporary fiction fans who might enjoy a slice of chick lit.
