Year Published: 2003

Description: The Devil Wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger is a humorous account of Andrea Sachs, an ambitious young college graduate and aspiring writer who accepts employment as a personal assistant to the demanding and demeaning editor of a top fashion magazine in hopes that it will serve as a springboard to better work.  Amongst grueling hours and constant stress, her life and relationships quickly unravel.  While accompanying her boss on a trip to Paris, she comes to the realization that she must recalibrate in order to avoid becoming a similarly demonic individual herself.
