Fresh out of college with a degree in journalism, Andrea Sachs, having grown up in a small New Hampshire town, has no idea what lies ahead of her when she moves to Manhattan to pursue her dream to write for the New Yorker. With little experience in the field, she knows she has to start somewhere. She lands an interview for the fashion magazine Runway. She is accepted into the position as assistant to the merciless and demanding Miranda Priestly, editor in chief of the magazine and one of the biggest names in fashion. She is transported into the superficial world of the fashion industry, as she struggles not to allow the ridiculous demands of this woman to control her life. As long nights and disrupted weekends begin to affect her relationships with her boyfriend, friends, and family, she realizes even the smallest of decisions could make a dramatic difference in her future.

The Devil Wears Prada is a fun, humorous story that also shows the importance of understanding your goals and who you want to be, and not allowing other people or obstacles to get in the way of that. Lauren Weisberger portrays Andrea and all of her emotions very well, allowing you to connect with her as well as the setting. The novel’s sarcastic and humorous tone encourages your laughter, though the book never loses its focus. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a light, interesting novel that you want to keep reading. The Devil Wears Prada illustrates the toll change can take on you, as well as the excitement it can eventually bring. Overall, this was a fun, enjoyable book.
