Sophie's To-Do List: Find an apartment, find a new job (preferably not at a glossy, girly magazine), check out that open mic night in Brooklyn, and (last but definitely not least) figure out what to do about that cute rapper named Furious. . .

After graduating from the University of Michigan, Sophie knows that she wants to move to New York and become a music journalist. After finally landing a job at BeatMaker magazine, finding the perfect little apartment, and meeting two potential boyfriends, Sophie begins to think that she has it made. Of course, in the hectic entertainment industry nothing is ever quite as it seems. After a series of sometimes funny and sometimes heartbreaking missteps, Sophie must learn to stand up for herself and concentrate on her first true love: hip-hop.

Funny, fresh, and real, So Fly takes readers inside the sometimes exciting, sometimes gritty, always entertaining world of the music industry. Debut novelist Giselle Zado Wasfie has given readers an engaging new take on that first year out of school, when you struggle between paying the rent or going out on the town.

Praise for So Fly

"Giselle knows her hip hop culture...shoot, I tried to catch her on some things, but she got it. 50 points to this woman for being brave enough to tell this story from a much missing perspective. Another 50 for doing an impeccable job." --Jean Grae, D.J.

"Sophie rides the upnotes and downs of the male-dominated music scene with humor and a self-aware wit - all the while trying to figure out her life and loves. . . "
--Emily Franklin, author of Liner Notes and The Principles of Love

"So Fly is an accurate look into the life of a young woman who turns her passion for music reporting into an experience no amount of journalism school could prepare her for."
-Leah Rose, Associate Music Editor, XXL

"Giselle Zado Wasfie's attention to detail makes this book feel like it's ripped from a diary. If you've ever experienced love, pain, struggle or Hip-Hop you'll definitely enjoy So Fly."
--Rakaa, Dilated Peoples
