This is a typical DS book but the story was forced and rushed. Not pleased with this one at all. Another huge issue-this is a book about women and empowerment and a male read the story. Very incongruous. Plus, he was not a great narrator. Very disappointed.

Hannah Howard is a Columbia University freshman when she lands a hostess job at Picholine, a Michelin-starred restaurant in Manhattan. Eighteen years old and eager to learn, she’s invigorated by the manic energy and knife-sharp focus of the crew. By day Hannah explores the Columbia arts scene, struggling to find her place. By night she’s intoxicated by boxes of heady truffles and intrigued by the food industry’s insiders. She’s hungry for knowledge, success, and love, but she’s also ravenous because she hasn’t eaten more than yogurt and coffee in days.

Good story, although a bit preachy at the end. Great writing! loved the descriptive tone and being transported to the world of food service in all different capacities. The trip into Hannah's mind was fascinating. Please, Please find a different narrator. You are a lovely writer, wonderful with food, and a strong woman. Your narration was distracting and almost had me not finishing the book.
