About this item
A modern Manhattan fairy tale with the sparkle of a champagne cocktail, Tinsley Mortimers debut novel provides a delicious peek into her world of society, fashion, and big-city fame.
SOUTHERN GIRL Minty Davenport has always dreamed of skyscrapers, yellow cabs, and a life like Eloises in New York City. So upon graduation from college, she bids adieu to Charleston and makes a beeline for the Big Apple. Almost instantly, she finds herself at an event being photographed for Womens Wear Daily, and her career as a New York society It Girl is launched.
As Minty navigates the ironclad customs of New York society, a blossoming love life, and a job working for a ruthless and powerful publicist, she finds that the rules a southern belle lives bybeing nice to everyone, accentuating her femininity, and minding her mannersdont necessarily guarantee success in Manhattan. She may indeed be accumulating new friends and opportunities along with boldfaced mentions and a very eligible bachelor boyfriend, but someone is plotting her very public downfall. When Minty gets to the top of the social ladder, she must decide if the glamorous life she thought she wanted is really everything she hoped it would be.
Tinsley Mortimers insider observations about New Yorks elite are deliciously witty, and the heart of her book is that of an irresistibly lovable young woman who is on the brink of finding her dream.
