I have always had the idea that being an intern would be a fabulous job especially at a magazine publisher or in my dream world a book publisher! So I knew debut novel, The Intern, by Gabrielle Tozer will be a must read.
There are always different perceptions of being a intern, the glitz and glamour compared to collecting lunch and coffees for the senior team. Josie Browning has been offered an internship at the high end magazine, Sash, must to her younger sisters dismay and embarrassment. Josie is academic and not engrossed with the magazine commitments unlike her sister, she will need to jump out of her comfort zone.
Her sister, Kat, takes her shopping after saying none of her existing wardrobe will suit. Out of her comfort zone Josie struggles with the high heeled shoes but is determined, until she falls in some juice and stains her new dress and now even more determined to not give up.
Arriving for her internship Josie realises there are two other interns working with her for the next 12 weeks and the editor-in-chief Rae Swanson has offered the girls an incentive for the girls over the next 12 weeks - the best intern will receive $5,000 from a magazine sponsor and also a column in Sash, Josie could not believe how much $5,000 could change her families life at the moment.
Josie was going to succeed regardless of the outcome but with more incentive she will putting her all into this internship, but will it work out as smoothly for Josie as she hoped?
I loved The Intern, it only took me a few hours to read this book as I needed to find out what happened to Josie and would she love a career in magazine publishing rather than newspaper.
