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)
