If you're looking for a fun and easy read, this is the book for you. Mary Lou is one of the quirkiest characters you'll ever meet. You probably have a neighbor like her--a heart of gold but sometimes her head is full of air. The author does a really good job of fleshing out Mary Lou and the other characters so well that you start putting faces to them -- the guy in the next cubicle, the cop who drinks coffee at your local diner, the bloke who owns the flower store in your neighborhood who wouldn't hire your teenager. You get the idea. Andree has done a good job at capturing the work world in a big company, the luxury of life in the fast and rich lane, and her research shows throughout the book. One note of caution: DO NOT READ THE END FIRST. She comes up with an uncanny twist, and you don't want to spoil it.
