Summary "Four millennial bright young things charge into the real world, with all the unfounded confidence of twenty-two: M., our narrator, is one of the few young women at her prestigious, high-octane investment bank. To her mother's chagrin, she has always insisted she prefers her signet ring to any diamond. Belle is M.'s college best friend. Wide-eyed and whimsical, she marks the sidewalks of Manhattan with messages in pink chalk and snaps a ceaseless stream of photos for her viral blog. Chase is Belle's British-American, on-again-off-again boyfriend. Equal parts fraternity bro and Savile Row, he is M.'s colleague and arch nemesis. Jeremy is M.'s new friend, a modern-day Gatsby, dapper and earnest, who would rather be piloting a hot air balloon than stuck behind his Wall Street desk. As the financial crisis bears down and social media grows ever more ubiquitous, style and substance become increasingly difficult to distinguish. In this fake plastic world, what do success and friendship and love even look like?"-- Provided by publisher.
