9780007461110: Bond Girl

The Devil Wears Prada meets Wall Street in this fast–paced, hilarious odyssey in four–inch heels.

Whilst some bankers take 15 minutes to agree on a font size for a presentation, Alex Gerrett discovers that it takes her only one minute to lose her new bank $93,000 on her first trade. Welcome to the world of finance.

Being at the bottom of the corporate ladder in one of Wall street's biggest powerhouses is like having landed in a giant adult playground for new-girl-on-the-block Alex. As a child she witnessed the 'glamour' of the money-making machine via her banker dad. Now, she has survived the 'do-you-squeeze-the-toothpaste-from-the-bottom-or-the-top?' question in the interview and is heading for The City.

Her 'Watch Out Wall Street, Here I Come' attitude is soon punctured by her status as the one with the folding chair instead of a desk.

She has a lot to learn, for example:

· A $65 limo ride is a completely acceptable way to travel ten blocks...

· ... or five blocks if it’s raining.

·Knowing maths is important – but nowhere near as important as you’d think!

· A bet is a bet is a bet. If you lose at credit card roulette, you will pay the bill. No one cares that it’s your first job and the bill is $10,000.

And with things looking a little sticky on the World’s markets, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Review:

“I’m crazy about Bond Girl. Erin Duffy is a fresh, funny, and fabulous new voice in literature....Great story. Delicious debut.” – Adriana Trigiani, author of Lucia, Lucia and Brava, Valentine

From the Back Cover:

While other little girls were fantasizing about becoming doctors or lawyers, Alex Garrett dreamed of conquering the high-powered world of Wall Street. Now she's grown and determined to make it big in bond sales at Cromwell Pierce, one of the Street's most esteemed brokerage firms. Though she's prepared to fight her way into an elitist boys' club, she starts out small, relegated to a kiddie-size folding chair with her new moniker, "Girlie," inscribed in Wite-Out across the back.

Always keeping her eyes on the prize (and ignoring her friends' pleas for her to quit), Alex quickly learns how to roll with the punches, rising from lowly analyst to slightly-less-lowly associate in no time. Suddenly she's being addressed by her real name, and the boys' club has transformed into forty older brothers . . . and one possible boyfriend. But then the apocalypse hits, and Alex is faced with the most difficult choice of her life: to stick with Cromwell Pierce as it teeters on the brink of disaster . . . or to kick off her Jimmy Choos and go running for higher ground.
