Publisher's Write-Up

Ab-Fab on the page!

Morgan, Pandora, Nick, Emily and drop-dead gorgeous Max are all in their early twenties, at that stage of life where parties are a must, and sex and drugs just have to be done. Emily, a little more shy and retiring, has just embarked on the post of PA to Nina, a wonderful but scatty fashion magazine editor-in-chief, whose number two is after her job and her boss.

Nina still holds a candle for Sam, Morgan's estranged father, and meantime Pandora fancies Max who lusts after Morgan. Life seems a gas, until Pandora goes missing in Paris, and suddenly things aren't quite so bubbly.

Fun and frothy, this is a compelling and pithy novel, filled with the zing and absurdity of the world of fashion and the trials of youth.

Review by Chrissi
Rating 4/10
This is just disposable junk reading for a wet evening - the characters are self obsessed fashion victims working on a fashion magazine. There is the obligatory bit of mystery involved, relationships are vague and those of the past are intruding on those of the present, but it all comes out right in the end.

This is a magazine version of a novel, all of the clich├ęs are present, the beautiful people, with their tangles lives, bitchiness and back biting. However, this lot appear to have no real emotions that are not so much stunted as constipated.

I found this to be a paperback version of something like "Now" magazine, full of impossibly beautiful people obsessed with themselves. Now I know that there are people like that, but if they all gravitate towards working on fluffy magazines, then I think that the majority of us are quite safe from banality like this.
