COFFEE GIRL the novel
‘the Sex and the City of the service industry’
real stories from the Toronto streets and cafés
Clara Ellasdóttir may seem like just your average barista, trying to survive big-city life on scraps. But don't be fooled by the black apron and blouse covered in coffee stains. Forced to leave her quiet life in Iceland behind, she finds herself in downtown Toronto. Skipping classes to do coffee runs, and smoking cigarettes in alleyways with celebrities. She's learning that the secret to getting what you want out of life- while keeping everyone else's dirty secrets- comes down to making the perfect drink. From behind the counter, to the red carpet, Clara and her coffee girlfriends share their wild stories, romances and, of course, gossip, good to the last drop. This isn't your average Cinderella story- it's all real life.
