I wasn't sure I would like this book because of how the chapters were structured on a daily routine, but it works and I really enjoyed reading it. Sally is a receptionist for a large hotel and we find out how her childhood helped to shape the adult she grew up to be. The story centres around her life at work, her interaction with guests and employees and her own personal thoughts on every person she comes into contact with. It gives an honest and upfront account of what she is really thinking about in every aspect of life, which we can all relate to. It's different from anything I've read before, which made it a very interesting read.
