You can take the girl out of Brooklyn, but can you take Brooklyn out of the girl?

Lorraine Machuchi has held on tight to her Brooklyn home, and to Tommy, the neighborhood guy she's been pining over for years. But the very guy she tossed everything away for just told her he'll never wind up with her--a girl who's not going anywhere.

That's the kick in the pants she needs to cross the bridge to Manhattan, where she starts coloring hair at a swank salon. There she meets a new and fascinating species: The Park Avenue Princess. Sure, their $400 cashmere sweaters, charity balls for poor girls with small boobs, and 'sexy' yoga are a bit over-the-top for someone like Lorraine, but sometimes even a Brooklyn girl can learn to love her own inner princess.

Baker & Taylor
Dumped by the neighborhood guy to whom she has devoted her life for years, Brooklyn girl Lorraine Machuchi finally gains the courage to pursue a bold new life in Manhattan, where she encounters a whole new way of life, including the Park Avenue Princess. By the author of Diary of a Working Girl. Original.
