All Ginger wants is a promotion at the fashion glossy À la Mode magazine. All her mother wants is a nice, professional Korean son-in-law. Unable to keep her mother at bay, Ginger reluctantly agrees to let her play matchmaker.

At work, Ginger’s efforts at advancement are thwarted by style friends better practiced in the art of office warfare. Away from the job, she’s surprised that her arranged dates are turned off by her before she gets a chance to refuse their attempts at a goodnight kiss.

With wry humor and lively dialogue, this insightful debut offers both a deliciously scathing portrait of life behind the catwalk and “a bouquet to any reader who’s ever gone looking for love with her mother looking over her shoulder.” (Jennifer Weiner)
