Mack McAllister may just be the next Facebook guy. Always searching for that one in a million, the tech scene in New York is flooded with app ideas, VC’s (with loads of cash) and young millennials who possess an unparalleled amount of confidence and self worth. Mack, a driven, industrious 28 year old finds himself and the company he created on the brink of becoming the guy on the magazine cover. Gramercy is preparing to finance his Series A round funding which would skyrocket his app Takeoff to the stratosphere. On paper Mack would be rich. On the streets of NY startup world, he would be king. But the rumblings in his office life, hence love life begin to implode. Isabel, his beautiful, longtime (3years!) assistant has begun to reject his flirtatious sexts and has been snapchatting her newfound romance with Andrew. Sabrina, the ancient woman in the office (36! married with kids!) keeps her head down while tweeting the company’s branding and tries to keep it together as she desperately needs the cash to hide her shopaholic debt from her editor husband, who just happens to be following a story about Mack’s implosion. This fictionalized cast of quirky characters turns the spotlight on the startup tech world and lingo that this generation has mastered. Quick, fun, laugh out loud - fabulous author Doree Schfrir had me on her first page dedication: For my grandparents, who never went online. Highly recommend this #stockupforsummer #beachread Couldn’t be more fun.
