On paper, Zoe Zeng has made it in New York's fashion world . . . but life in the city isn't quite what Zoe imagined.

Her editor at Chic magazine wants to censor her opinions to please the big brands; she shares her 'quaint' (read: small) apartment with three roommates who never let her store kimchi in the fridge; and how is she supposed to afford all the designer clothes on her meagre salary?

When Zoe is offered a job at FitPick - a startup based in Silicon Valley - the salary and office perks are great, but moving across the country and leaving her best friends behind? Not so much.

Taking a leap of faith, Zoe trades high fashion for high tech. But she soon realizes that in an industry claiming to change the world for the better, not everyone's intentions are pure. And with an eight-figure investment on the line, Zoe must find a way to revamp the app's image despite Silicon Valley's elitism and her icy colleagues.

If not, the company's future will go up in smoke - and hers with it.

LEGALLY BLONDE meets SILICON VALLEY in this bold and addictive new novel from Kyla Zhao, author of The Fraud Squad.
