Description of this Electronic Book

A touching and hopeful look at the underworld of the office temp from hilarious author Leslie Carroll. Meet Alice Finnegan: 30-something, single and stuck in a cycle of horrific secretarial temp jobs. She's trying to fulfil her childhood ambitions of on-stage stardom, while sharing an apartment with her 90-something grandmother, a feisty, funny, former Ziegfeld showgirl. Along the rocky road to independence, Alice encounters a colourful cast of oddballs, nuts and control freaks (including members of her immediate family). And just to keep life interesting, she succumbs to the pitfalls of office romances and the perils of nasty bosses, as she endeavours to keep her sanity intact and make that big break into the spotlights.
