I am spending my summer traveling with BookSparks in this year’s #SRC2015. Right now, I am traveling with The Balance Project by Susie Orman Schnall. Destination: Hit the streets of New York City.
The Balance Project by Susie Orman Schnall
About The Book:
The Balance Project is a story of loyalty, choices, and balance that will resonate deeply with all women who struggle with this hot-button issue. Loyal assistant Lucy Cooper works for Katherine Whitney, who seems to have it all: a high-powered job at a multi-billion-dollar health and wellness lifestyle company, a successful husband, and two adorable daughters. Now, with the release of her book on work-life balance, Katherine has become a media darling and a hero to working women everywhere. In reality, though, Katherine’s life is starting to fall apart, and Lucy is the one holding it all together, causing her own life - and relationship with her boyfriend Nick - to suffer. When Katherine does something unthinkable to Lucy, Lucy must decide whether to change Katherine’s life forever or continue being her main champion. Her choice will affect the trajectory of both of their lives and lead to opportunities neither one could have imagined.
If you liked The Devil Wears Prada, then this book is for you. The stories are similar but definitely not the same. You find yourself all at once rooting for both Katherine and Lucy!
