The Devil Wears Prada meets One L, BIGLAW provides an insider's view of the cut-throat world of big New York law firms.

Mackenzie Corbett has always dreamed of living in New York City. Now, almost two years into her job as an associate at a premier Manhattan law firm, she's living her fantasy--big salary, high profile deals, cute boyfriend, designer bag on her arm. The giant bags under her eyes from lack of sleep don't fit into the fantasy, though. To make matters worse, she's being tormented by a bitter, bitchy senior associate, her boyfriend is annoyed she never has time for him, and now she's stuck on the deal from hell with a partner whose biggest claim to fame is throwing a stapler at a cleaning lady because she touched his ficus plant. 

With the opportunity to secure a prestigious secondment on line, the overachiever in her is determined to endure whatever it takes to close the biggest deal in the firm's history. But when Mackenzie finds herself the focus of a devastating investigation her dream job begins spiraling into a nightmare. 

In this pitch perfect, frightening accurate novel, Lindsay Cameron throws back the curtain to this intriguing world exposing the truth about life in Biglaw.

My Thoughts:
What an awesome book. Welcome to Corporate America! I was laughing so hard during parts of this book that I had to walk away and come back. This book makes me thank heavens that I didn't go into corporate law like I originally wanted to. I'm much better suited for the fashion world. This book follows Mackenzie as she climbs the cutthroat corporate ladder of a big Manhattan law firm. Whether youre a lawyer or not, you will undoubtely enjoy this amazing book. You will cringe, snicker, and at times you'll be rooting for Mackenzie to throat-punch someone. I can't say enough good things about this book. EVERYONE should read it, I accept cupcakes as thanks for telling y'all about this book.
