Everybody Rise It s 2006 in the Manhattan of the young and glamorous Money and class are colliding in a city that is about to go over a financial precipice and take much of the country with it At 26, bright, funny and socially anxious Evelyn Beegan is determined to carve her own path in life and free herself from the influence of her social climbing mother, who propelled her through prep school and onto the Upper East Side Evelyn has long felt like an outsider to her privileged peers, but when she gets a job at a social network aimed at the elite, she s forced to embrace them.Recruiting new members for the site, Evelyn steps into a promised land of Adirondack camps, Newport cottages and Southampton clubs thick with socialites and Wall Streeters Despite herself, Evelyn finds the lure of belonging intoxicating, and starts trying to pass as old money herself When her father, a crusading class action lawyer, is indicted for bribery, Evelyn must contend with her own family s downfall as she keeps up appearances in her new life, grasping with increasing desperation as the ground underneath her begins to give way.Bracing, hilarious and often poignant, Stephanie Clifford s debut offers a thoroughly modern take on classic American themes money, ambition, family, friendship and on the universal longing to fit in.

  2. Oh my Lord How can y all give this five stars It s two stars at best.I was filled with a ridiculous amount of anticipation when I read the summary and learned of Clifford s impressive literary pedigree I love chick lit Well, here s the thing I love well written, provocative chick lit This was neither.We should want to root for the heroine, Evelyn even if she quickly slides into anti hero territory as she desperately grabs at a seemingly unreachable social echelon Instead, Evelyn come O...

  4. This is one of those stressful books where the main character Evelyn here rises and rises through mildly nefarious tactics and you just know they re going to fall eventually and even though they re not the most likeable of characters, you still root for them anyway, because they re your faithful narrator I have a soft spot for vapid, gossip y type books, especially when they re focused on the rich and famous, and Clifford gets bonus points because she s excellent with details and her writin This is one of...

  5. I appreciated the concept of Everybody Rise, but it didn t work particularly well for me Just like the main character Evelyn, the book seemed to try too hard and as a consequence felt too obvious Evelyn s mother is a very self conscious class climber Her father is a class action plaintiffs lawyer who comes from modest circumstances but who has made millions through his work Evelyn s mother has always pushed Evelyn to be with the old monied elite, starting by sending Evelyn to an elite prep I appreciated the concept of Everybody Rise, but it didn t work particularly well for me Just like the main character Evelyn, the book seemed to try too hard and as a consequence felt too obvious Evelyn s mother is a very self conscious class climber Her father is a class action plaintiffs lawyer who comes from modest circumstances but who has made millions through his work Evelyn s mother has always pushed Evelyn to be with the old monied elite, starting by sending Evelyn to an elite prep school While Ev...
