They made the rules. She’s going to break them.
When Alex Vogel gets a new job working at a corporate Manhattan law firm, she thinks all her dreams have come true. The pay checks are huge, the work is exciting, and the drinks are flowing every Friday night. But underneath the glossy veneer of the company, dark secrets are lurking.
Her colleagues disappear into the bathroom for hits of cocaine, the partners sleep under their desks (if they sleep at all) and the firm’s biggest client sexually harasses a string of women, none of whom will speak up. Alex soon realises that in order to fit in, she needs to become one of the boys – and turn a blind eye to what goes on. She needs to join in.
But as her life begins to spiral out of control, Alex realises – the boys’ club is a dangerous place to be in this brilliant, topical coming-of-age novel that gives a voice to women in the world of law.
