Twenty-three-year-old Jersey girl Eve Vitali is on the verge of somethingā ¦ whether it be a relationship, the fabulous life that she reads about in the Styles section of the New York Times or a nervous breakdown. Despite her Jackie O. suit, Eve works as an unappreciated assistant for-of all things-a bicycle magazine. Everyone keeps telling her that she's got her foot in the door, but the rest of her is surfing the Net and schlepping around with Tabitha, an Amazonian sex goddess. Between glam parties, obligatory visits home and myriad men, Eve is realizing that it takes a lot of work to get beyond the verge and on to the next big thingā ¦. It seems everyone has advice on how to get there: Eve (on keeping her "foot in the door"): "Develop artificial cheeriness. Answer all requests with 'great.' Hypothetical: Person of dubious authority: 'Eve, why don't you count all of the paper clips in the entire department and then divide them into seven equal piles?' Me: 'Great. I'll get right on it. That'll be great.'" Tabitha (prefers foreign men, gets entree to the coolest parties, buys lots of underwear): "Remove unsightly hairs before all dates." Roseanne (Eve's roommate who works in-gasp!-finance): "Whatever you do, don't be predictable."

From Booklist:

Twenty-three-year-old Eve Vitali isn't exactly where she wants to be. Though she works in New York, she's still living at home with her family in New Jersey. Her job at Bicycle Boy, a trendy magazine, is far from exciting. When her college roommate, Roseanne, calls to tell Eve she's moving to New York, Eve solves her housing problem by deciding to share an apartment with her. Her best friend, Tabitha, clashes with Roseanne at first, but then the two gradually begin to accept each other. At work, Eve catches the eye of handsome Rob King, who's been called in to reorganize the company that owns Bicycle Boy. Eve and Rob start hooking up, but Eve's dissatisfaction with her job and the lack of opportunities for advancement cause her to start thinking about her original dream to start a magazine of her own. Glossy and light, and filled with glamorous parties, exciting hookups, and cocktails, Papa's hip romance is right on target for twentysomethings. Kristine Huntley
