Genre: Realistic Fiction, Chick Lit.
Being America’s favorite heiress is a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it.
Lexington Larrabee has never to work a day in her life. After all, she’s the heiress to the multi-billion-dollar Larrabee Media empire. And heiresses are not supposed to work. But then again, they’re not supposed to crash brand new Mercedes convertibles into convenience stores on Sunset Blvd either.
Which is why, on Lexi’s eighteen birthday, her ever-absent, tycoon father decides to take a more proactive approach to her wayward life. Every week for the next year, she will have to take on a different low-wage job if she ever wants to receive her beloved trust fund. But if there’s anything worse than working as a maid, a dishwasher, and a fast-food restaurant employee, it’s dealing with Luke, the arrogant, albeit moderately attractive, college intern her father has assigned to keep tabs on her.
What I really loved about this book was that you could really connect to Lexi. In other stories, when the protagonist acts like a brat, it's extremely annoying. But with this book, I was so connected to Lexi that I was sad when she was, happy she was, mad when she was, and etc.
Jessica Brody's writing was fabulous and provided a clear image of the story at all times, without being too descriptive (which I usually find annoying.)
I was completely into this book,and Lexi's world, that I didn't even notice the time fly by. I finished this in one sitting because I couldn't bring myself to put it down.
Even though I knew that Lexi deserved the punishment she received, I found myself also try to come up with ways for her to get out of it.
I was so sucked into this book that I wasn't me anymore--I was Lexi. I shared her feelings, and felt that everything negative that happened to her was unfair--even though my subconscious knew that it was completely fair.
You should definitely give this book a try if you need an escape from reality.
Likes: Lexi, and everyone else.
Dislikes: Didn't really have any.
