It looked like it could be cute, mindless chick-lit. In reality, it was so boring I could hardly read it. It is loosely based on the demise of McCalls magazine (i think that's which one it was) when Rosie O'Donnell took it over and made it Rosie.

For a book that might have been based on real life this book felt less than authentic to me. The character that is loosely based on Rosie that takes over this magazine was such a caricature she never felt real to me. There is a really implausable situation involving the main character being "gifted" Hugh Grant for a few hours on her birthday that I thought was going to turn out to be a dream sequence and never did.
