Another biting satire from Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus, Authors of the #1 New York Times Bestseller The Nanny Diaries.

Working in a world where a college degree qualifies her to make photocopies and color-coordinate file folders, twenty-four year old Girl is struggling to keep up with the essential trinity of food, shelter, and student loans. So when she finally lands the job of her dreams she ignores her misgivings and concentrates on getting the job done...whatever that may be.

Sharply observed and devastatingly funny, Citizen Girl captures what it means to be young and female in the new economy. A personal glimpse into an impersonal world, Citizen Girl is edgy and heartfelt, an entertaining story that is startlingly relevant.

    " Some funny, "cute" parts running on mainly twenty-something mentality. But through out most of the book, you never really get a handle on what"girl" actually does for a living, and the scary thing is, she doesn't know either. Weird book. "

    " Oh boy was this bad! I'm only giving it two stars because the concept of the story was very good. Somehow the whole thing was just a big messy miss! The character "girl" is super annoying and the positions she gets herself into are just stupid...... "
