Trading Up by Candace Bushnell

In Trading Up, Janey Wilcox (first introduced in 4 Blondes) is a beautiful underwear model who wants everything she can get from life. She drives a Porsche Boxter, snags a rich husband, and parties in the Hamptons with the rich and powerful set. Yet it's never enough for Janey, who uses her beauty and sex appeal to move her way up through high society. Candace Bushnell (author of Sex and the City) skewers the society she knows so well. Trading Up has received widely varying reviews. The Cleveland Plain Dealer says "Bushnell is in acid-tongued fine form, dissecting the mores of the rich and wannabe famous. This is fun with a cruel edge." The Portland Oregonian says, "Fourteen-year-old Anne Frank had much more interesting things to say about humanity in the face of great evil. So do Mary-Kate and Ashley."
