    3. On the surface this book is a light read about fashion and the fashion world. Bonnie, a middle-class, thirty-something, divorced woman with a 6yr-old, high-functioning autistic son works as a successful stylist in a department store in New York City, helping celebrity clients figure out what to wear. Very much like in the show Ugly Betty, Bonnie lives in Queens, and she struggles to reconcile the life she lives at work with the life she has at home. Under the surface, this book brings up all sor [...]

    4. I have a weakness for a certain type of book. They are catty behind the scene glimpses at Celebrities and Hollywood. Examples would include Jackie Collins, A "Dead is the New Fabulous" Mystery series /series/1585 & Julia Phillips. This explains why I read this book, touted as the fictional behind the scenes stories of a personal shopper in a NYC premier retailer. And there is plenty of work related action but what this book is really about is a single parent of an autism spectrum child strug [...]

    6. Slow and steady development of characters throughout the story. This book captured me from the first page. It's not gossipy or trashy, instead it showed me Bonnie's life: demanding job with backstabbing co-workers and unreasonable customers, single mom raising an autistic son and watching her ex husband fall in love and start a new family. She has so much on her plate that she doesn't have any energy left over for a personal life, which is why it was so great to see her evaluate and make changes [...]

    7. Bonnie is a single mother with a disabled son who works in a high end store in Manhattan attending to the couture needs of her very wealthy clients. This book is filled with outrageous demands by her clients as well as her own family difficulties and trying to balance her home and work life. The book was a quick and easy read and if you enjoyed "The Devil wears Prada" you will definitely enjoy this book!

    8. In which the story of a personal shopper and single mother to a kid with Asperger's syndrome (minor plot line) is told. I'm not sure if it was so much that the book was solid or that I read it right after the almost-terrible Where Does Caitlyn Go to School, but I give this book a much higher rating for character like-ability and story development.

    9. Can we all just agree that sometimes I make bad reading choices? and leave it at that, and not laugh derisively? And can we all just agree that usually if you receive a book for free, it's worth exactly what you paid for?Good. And now we can move on.

    10. Entertaining This book was much better than I their would be. I enjoyed the single working mother with an emotionally challenged son, and that at the end of the day the man realizing, love her, love all that comes with her. And be willing to fight for it. Good read.
