Sophia of Silicon Valley: A Novel
Sophia of Silicon Valley is Anna Yen’s debut novel about plucky, newly college grad, diabetic, Sophia Young and her forays into the tech world. After being fired for her candidness from her boss, Jack Wynn, Sophia gets hired as a paralegal in a law firm that deals with pre-IPO companies. Sophia eventually impresses quirky Scott Kraft and is recruited to be the head of investor relations at Treehouse working for Scott Kraft (aka Pixar and Steve Jobs). Eventually, Sophia leaves Treehouse, and she ends up working for inventor and entrepreneur, Andre Stark (a fictionalized Elon Musk). As her dreams start to come to fruition, Sophia starts neglecting her health and she wonders if everything she’s worked for is what she really wants. The story is an easy and humorous read and I’m sure many women can relate to Sophia as she struggles with trying to have it all in a male dominated society.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
