    The Assistants

    If you’ve ever been the lowest man—or woman—on the corporate totem pole, you’ll appreciate this tongue-in-cheek novel. Tina Fontana is making pennies working as the assistant to media mogul Robert Barlow, CEO of Titan Corp. She lives in a crappy apartment with a roommate and struggles to pay her student loans while her boss rakes in millions. When an error on an expense report deposits thousands into Tina’s bank account, she finds she can pay off her loans in one fell swoop—then devises a devious but ingenious plan to help other underpaid assistants do the same.
