The Debutante's Guide to Wall Street by Kristen Fanarakis
Determined to have more than a life perfectly planned before she ever lived it, Gigi moves to New York City and lands a job at one of the city's top investment banks. Like apartments and Louboutins, dreams didn't come cheap in the Big Apple and she finds the trading desk is the last place any good Southern belle should be. A place where minding her manners is more likely to get her a pink-slip than a pat on the back. With the tenacity to rival Scarlett O'Hara and the help of a salty Wall Street veteran known as the Joker, she slowly learns to navigate the Wall Street jungle. But you can't go to the zoo and not expect to see any animals. Just when she thinks she's figured out how to succeed in a way that would make even Emily Post proud, a crisis strikes her bank and she becomes the target of her coworkers scheming. Everything she's worked so hard to create is suddenly gone and Gigi must make a choice: She can go home and start picking out her china pattern, or she can stick it out and try to prove that true Southern belles really are bulldozers disguised as powder puffs.
