Description:

The Devil Wears Prada meets Sex and the City in a wickedly funny debut novel about a girl who lands a dream internship at a magazine in New York City. If only she hadn’t lied about being a dating expert on her resume . .

Harper Anderson has always thought she should have been born somewhere more glamorous than her sleepy Northern California suburb. After all, how many water polo matches and lame parties in Bobby McKittrick’s backyard can one girl take?

Already resigned to working at a Skinny B’s Juice Press for the summer, Harper is shocked when the ultra-prestigious teen magazine, Shift, calls to say they want her to be their teen dating blogger for the summer. All she needs to do is get her butt to New York in two days.

There’s just one teeny, tiny problem: Apart from some dance floor make-outs, Harper doesn’t have a whole lot of dating experience. So when Shift’s application asked for an “edgy” personal essay, Harper might have misappropriated her best friend’s experiences for her own. But she can just learn on the job…right? Will the house of lies Harper has built around her dream job collapse all around her, or will she be able to fake it until she makes it in the big city?

Review_

It’s come to the point in my life where I’m too old for books like Little Black Dress, Little White Lies. With that being said, I did enjoy it. Although it was predictable and a tad bit ridiculous, Laura Stampler’s Little Black Dress, Little White Lies was a rocking chick lit. Even though I’m still trying to figure out what popular magazine was hiring High Schoolers to do internships with them?

Regardless this was a fun and flirty read that is sure to make you laugh out loud at the jokes and situations or at some of the ridiculous eye rolling shenanigans that goes on in this book. If you’re a fan of The Devil Wears Prada meets Gossip Girl this book is all for you.

Meet our snarky and witty heroine Harper Anderson. High School senior who just landed the internship of a lifetime. Blogger and dating expert for Shift Magazine. Too bad Harper doesn’t know a thing about dating. So what is one to do in this situation? Lie, Lie, Lie until the wheels fall off. Or until you get caught.

With Laura Stampler superb writing, she is able to capture the glam that is New York City as well as the trials and tribulations of a teenager girl who trying to find herself, while pursuing a career in writing. A career that is not easy in its own right.

Overall, this book is about what it means to be your authentic self. Sometimes you have to make mistakes and become this whole other persona before you become comfortable with the person you’re meant to be.

With a little romance and a whole lot of fun Little Black Dress, Little White Lies is the go to beach read of the summer. Plus who could resist that adorable and fashionable cover? So do yourself a favor and grab you a copy of this entertaining read.
