Synopses & Reviews
Wild child and secret romantic Angie wakes up in a hotel room with $3,000 and no memories of the night before. Her best friends arent talking to her, she cant get a job in fashion, her parents are divorcing, and shes about to turn twenty-three. And life is about to get much worse.
Brooklyn Girls: Love and Chaos continues the story of our five favorite grads sharing a brownstone and starting out in New York City through Angies eyes. On a journey from private jets and yacht parties to dirty subways and hipster bars via crazy storms, flash floods, and retail jobs from hell, Angie discovers who she is, what she wants, how shes going to get it —and a crazy little thing called true love.
Meanwhile, her roommates lives are imploding, too. Cocos self-medicating and self-loathing, Pias breaking up and cracking up, Madeleines finding her voice and Julia might—just might—have met someone she can actually date.
Brooklyn Girls is the hilarious, inspiring Gemma Burgess series every twenty-something has been waiting for that tells you that whatever you do, whatever mistakes you make, everything is going to be okay. All you need is a little luck, a little work, and your best friends.
