Review -- Little Pink Slips

Little Pink Slips
by Sally Koslow
Published by Penguin, 2008
400 pages

Summary: Little Pink Slips is the story of Magnolia Gold, editor-in-chief of Lady magazine. When the company president decides to bring in Bebe Blake (a crass pseudo celebrity) to be the new face of the Magnolia's magazine, Mags must navigate the treacherous office politics while trying to keep her sanity.

Review: A fun and quick read, Little Pink Slips is filled with amusing characters and humorous situations. Magnolia is a great character, you can easily see how ambitious she is, but also down to earth and generous. I actually enjoyed the character of Bebe Blake as well. Most of the time, she is crude and awful to people, but she had moments of goodness as well. Author Sally Koslow keeps the prose action and comedy packed, making you want to keep reading about Magnolia's adventures. The ending was not my favorite (it was way too far fetched), but overall this was a fun read. Rating:*** out of 5

I know books like this aren't great literature, but sometimes I just need a fun little book.
