Brand X

Shapiro, Laurie Gwen. 2006. Brand X: The Boyfriend Account.

When Jordie Popkin, a sixteen year old junior, receives her internmentship at an ad agency, no one quite knows what to expect. While her peers all received more academic assignments, she’s landed one of the few creative opportunities ever offered at the school. But is it too good to be true? Can a team of creative, free spirits teach Jordie a thing or two about life and love? Jordie’s life is fine--but she dreams of it being great. Of getting the most popular boy in school to be her boyfriend. She’s always thought he was out of her league...but can her employers--her coworkers--work their magic and transform her life. Can a person be created, shaped, transformed like a product’s image? And even if she can get him...should she? Is he even worth it?
