Fantastically funny, fresh and utterly relatable, Brooklyn Girls by Gemma Burgess is the first novel in her brand new series about five twenty-something friends--Pia, Angie, Julia, Coco and Madeleine--sharing a brownstone in hip, downtown Brooklyn, and discovering the ups and downs and ins and outs of their "semi-adult" lives. The first story belongs to sophisticated, spoiled, and stylish Pia, who finds herself completely unemployed, unemployable, and broke. So what is a recent grad with an art history degree and an unfortunate history of Facebook topless photos to do? Start a food truck business of course! Pia takes on the surprisingly cutthroat Brooklyn world of hybrid lettuce growers, artisanal yogurt makers and homemade butter producers to start SkinnyWheels-- all while dealing with hipster bees, one-night-stands, heartbreak, parental fury, wild parties, revenge, jail, loan sharks, playboys, karaoke, true love, and one adorable pink food truck. And that's without counting her roommates' problems, too. Gemma Burgess has captured the confusion, hilarity and excitement of the post-graduate years against a backdrop of the pressures and chaos of New York City life, with heartfelt empathy, fast humor and sharp honesty.

A charming debut series about five twenty-something girls and the humor, heartbreak, and drama that bring them together

This is about five friends who are fresh out of college and just trying to figure out how to adult: jaded Angie, innocent Coco, ambitious Julia, uptight Madeline, and the narrator, Pia, who is ashamed of who she has been, but finds that transforming her life (including others' perceptions of her) is a lot harder than she thought. Brooklyn Girls has misadventure and excitement, just enough romance, and a lot of great sentiments about friends-who-are-family to leave you feeling warm and fuzzy.
