I always saw this book at the bookstore, and always thought it looked really boring. Then a month or so ago I heard an interview with the author and found her amusing and decided to give the book a try. It follows the year in the life of Sammy who is working in DC with Senator Gary. It's full of politics, most of which flew over my head, and probably would be boring if the main character wasn't goofy and fun. It's smartly written with humor. I would really like to ask the author if some of the wacky things that Sammy does are things that she does. So check it out. I'm eager to read the sequel.
