BTSCelebs Book Review: Allison Pittman’s “All For A Story”


This book is not what I expected.

“All For A Story” is mainly about a young woman (Monica Brisbaine) living an immoral life. She is in a serious relationship with a married man, drinks at illegal bars in the 1920s (speakeasies), flirts with numerous men and has a writing job on the side. Her job gets her into the speakeasies, but journalism takes a back seat ride throughout the whole book.

If you want to read about the journey of an unethical 20 year-old woman who slowly changes her ways and falls in love with her new boss (Max Moore), this book is for you. People yearning to read about the journalism field in the ’20s… should keep going.

In my opinion, the title is misleading and the entire plot was surprising. I would have loved to read more about Capital Chatter and not Monica Brisbaine’s wayward life.

“All For A Story” releases in bookstores in October 2013.
