How to Be a Grown-Up by Emma McLaughlin & Nicola Kraus

How to Be a Grown-Up: a novel is coauthored by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus and reads like the perfect mix of The Devil Wears Prada and Sex and the City. Definitely considered chick-lit, the novel gives the reader a glimpse into the reality of a woman having to reenter the workforce after sacrificing a successful career for home and family. To make matters worse, her new bosses are half her age and full of themselves, and have no experience beyond their sheltered, posh upbringing.
