Everyone Worth Knowing

Everyone Worth Knowing

Read by: Eliza Dushku
When twenty-seven-year-old Bette Robinson quits her Manhattan banking job, she knows she won't miss the eighty-hour workweeks, her claustrophobic cubicle or her revolting boss's Quotes of the Day.
Then Bette meets Kelly, head of Manhattan's hottest PR and events planning firm, and suddenly she has a brand-new job where the primary requirement is to see and be seen.
The work at Kelly & Company takes Bette inside the VIP rooms of the city's most exclusive nightclubs, to parties crowded with celebrities and socialites. Soon she's dating an infamous playboy who's great for her career but bad for her sanity -- and scaring off the one decent guy she meets. As her coworkers repeatedly point out, how can you complain about a job that pays you to party? Bette has to agree -- until she begins appearing in a vicious new gossip column. That's when Bette's life on paper takes on a whole new meaning -- and she learns the line between her personal and professional lives is...invisible.

Perhaps her best friend's engagement is the trigger, but Bette soon finds one of her boss's daily adages one too many, and quits like the impulsive girl she's never been. Though her parents push for her to do something "meaningful" with her life, Uncle Will introduces her to his former protégé, Kelly, and soon Bette finds herself with a coveted -- if antithetical -- job as an events planner at one of NYC's hottest outfits.
Bette's "work" takes her into the VIP lounges of the hottest celebrity- and socialite-filled New York City nightclubs every night of the week. It's a glamorous job, but Bette learns not to blink at the famous faces, the black Amex cards, velvet ropes, and paparazzi snapping pics of her coworkers and cohorts. When the "It" boy du jour, Philip Weston, takes a shine to her, Bette soon finds that the line between her personal and professional lives is...invisible.
