"Amoruso, founder of Nasty Gal, didn't start out with a tailored Wordpress design and instant accomplishment. In fact, her before-Nasty-Gal resume boasted the likes of dumper-diving for Bagels, quitting various obscure jobs, and hitchhiking. She never set out to create a brand; she simply had yet to find a career that interested her and decided to take her love of vintage clothing and turn it into an eBay shop."
"I will not call Sage, the main character in the book, a heroine. Her lack of perfection is simplistic and freeing in one sense, and her adamancy against changing her ways is morally corrupt in another. Again and again, Picoult raises a question. Are these characters monsters, good people in difficult situations, or just fundamentally human? Or are they all of these?"
