Back of the book :
When exclusive London boutique assistant Amber Green is mistakenly offered job working with infamous, Jet-setting ‘stylist to the stars’ Mona Armstrong, she hits the ground running, helping to style some of Hollywoods hottest (and craziest) stars during award season.
What I think :
Amber is working as a window dresser in a Upmarket Clothing boutique in London when one day “famous Stylist to the Stars” Mona Armstrong breezes into the shop. She is filming her T.V show, “The Stylist” there. Amber is absolutely overjoyed as Mona is Amber’s style icon. Whilst Mona is at the shop, she notices a window display that Amber had started to dress but forgot to finish in the rush to get everything finished before Mona arrived. However not knowing any of this, Mona thinks it’s brilliant.
Earlier that day Mona’s assistant had handed in her notice and Mona has been left in a bit of a pickle, what with the “Golden Globes” in L.A coming up. So she offers Amber the temp assistant job. Little does Mona know though that Amber knows nothing about being an assistant !!
So begins a fortnight of mayhem and mishaps in the run up to the “Golden Globes” !!
Can Amber pull it out of the bag or will Mona be able to see straight though her ??
Wow !! I really love this first novel from the lovely Rosie Nixon. It has lots of wonderful laugh out loud moments as well as some serious moments too.
I absolutely love Ambers character, with her really funny observations on the world, and her not really knowing whats she’s doing but muddling through anyway. And are there really people out there like Mona ? A lot of the time, whilst I was reading this book , I wondering if she was actually living in the same world as us !!
This is really a wonderfully comic insight of the world of showbiz and the people that live in it !!
I give this brilliant debut 9/10.
