Book Review and Giveaway: The Social Climber's Handbook by Molly Jong-Fast

social climbers notebook
Synopsis:
The Social Climbers Handbook takes place in New York City, during the summer of 2008. The financial world is about to collapse, and so is one woman's social standing. Daisy refuses to allow her family to slip down the social ladder, so she devises a madcap plan: Anyone who jeopardizes her place at the top will simply have to be dispatched—six feet under. From Dick’s arrogant boss to his scheming former mistress to a pair of nosy bloggers, Daisy’s hit list is a who’s who of big names with even bigger secrets. But with the body count rising as the Dow Jones falls, can Daisy really get away with murder?



Upper East Side socialite Daisy Greenbaum is accustomed to the finer things—designer clothes, summers in the Hamptons, elite private school educations for her daughters, and a staggeringly expensive Park Avenue apartment. But Daisy finds her well-heeled lifestyle on precarious footing after her husband, master of the universe Dick Greenbaum, learns about some shady dealings that threaten his position at The Bank (aka Goldman Sachs).




About the Author: Molly Jong-Fast >is the daughter of Erica Jong and Jonathan Fast. She is the granddaughter of Howard Fast. She is the author of 2 novels, this one and Normal Girl, and a memoir, Girl [Maladjusted].>She has 3 small and very surly children, all of whom like to talk to her at once when she is on the phone. Check out her website, for more info. 

Review: This is a fun and quick read, perfect for reading by the pool during Summer vacation (if you can wait that long to read it)! The book is funny, sarcastic and full of snarky remarks about the elite of NY. It gives you a look at the financial crisis from a different side. highly recommended for some fun and light Summer reading!
