"How Emily Got Promoted" centers on seemingly mid-twenty something Emily. I guess she is Amy's big sister. Like Amy, her world centers on her relationships to other women in the same age bracket. It is a world where you are judged by the expense of the gadgets you carry, the car your drive and your daddy's job. Emily is not yet married or settled into a permanent relationship with a man. Her parents and friends are starting to ask her why not and of course she finds this annoying. Emily is a free lance writer selling articles mostly to very trending high end type fashion magazines. The action of the plot is all about how Emily gets her self promoted from free lance writer to a very coveted by many in her peer group position as a staff writer(envy is a big thing in this world).
A lot of the fun of the story is seeing how some of the girls she knew in school have developed into "real grownups" and others have not. The writing style is straightforward and very easy to follow. "How Emily Got Promoted" is a good story, I enjoyed it.
Sarah Webb has a very attractive web page, the dominant color is pink, that gives a lot of information about her books.
