    I laughed so hard I cried..

    When I received 'She's Got Issues' in the mail to read, I wasn't sure it would be a book I would like and I definitely didn't think I would laugh to the point of tears as I read it. This book is incredibly funny and witty..Once I got into the mind of Chloe Rose, the main character, I couldn't stop laughing or put the book down. Chloe reminds me of Carrie from Sex and the City..too much to do, too little time and oh, what shoes should I wear with this outfit? Since she was a young girl, Chloe dreams of working for her favorite magazine Issues, as their shoe editor. Never mind that Chloe has no magazine editing experience, nor is there an actual shoe editing position. When Chloe lands the job as the 'assistant to the assistant,' she feels her dreams start to come true. From here we follow Chloe as she learns the hard way how catty and gossipy women can be, as she makes friends with some of the sincere folks who work at Issues, as she starts to realize she might actually be good at this job, as she falls in love and as her boss gets weirder and weirder. Seriously though, there were sections of this book where I had to put it down to wipe my eyes, I was laughing so hard I was crying. Chloe is a very lovable character naive and innocent to the point of hysterical. I loved it. If you're looking for a light read this summer (or anytime) try this one out..it will leave you laughing.

Where she meets her new wicked boss, which causes a whole set of misadventures. 'She's Got issues' is a funny book and i beileve every woman should read it.

    Amusing chick lit tale

    Because she is effervescent and optimistic everyone assumes that Chloe Rose is shallow and unable to see the depths of darkness. Currently she works as an assistant to an ambitious assistant to the Promotions Director of Issues Magazine.................... Chloe always tries to do her best regardless of the dumbing down project that her boss Ruth dumps on her. Ruth detests her assistant unable to deal with the constant idealist who makes Pollyanna look like Murphy. However, being a realist, Ruth cannot truly afford to fire Bubbles because Chloe may be naive when it comes to human nature, but her ideas are terrific, which in turn makes Ruth look good. However, even Chloe knows that Ruth abuses her, but on the other hand she does have access to nirvana, the shoe closet........................ Chloe seems too sweet and naïve yet that works because of the reaction of the secondary characters towards her; people either love her positive approach and volunteer to help or loathe her upbeat attitude and want to hire a hit man to silence her. This Pollyanna chick lit in the office tale is often amusing, but readers will also want Chloe to tell Ruth where to stick it.................. Harriet Klausner

    Excellent!

    I LOVED this book! Not only was it funny enough that it made me laugh out loud, it just made me feel good...about being a 'girly girl'...and of course...about loving a great pair of shoes! I can't wait for the sequel!
