This story gives a comedic look at a girl who is a full-time blogger on a women's gossip website. Alex lives in New York with her boyfriend Peter. The chapters are coordinated with the days of the week, so we get to hang out with Alex for a week as she tries to find good stories for her boss Moira, who is always there to give Alex a good swift kick in the pants to get the best stories. Alex gets thrown into a whirlwind when she finds out about a hate blog that has her as the main target. Alex's craziness really drives the story. This book has mystery and a lot of scandal. I wouldn't mind seeing a TV show made from this book. This is a quick, entertaining read. If you like reading the gossip sites every once in a while or obsessively, then this book is for you.
