"NECESSARY PEOPLE" shows how ambition can impact upon a friendship between 2 people from vastly different backgrounds. One who was born to immense wealth and privilege who is used to the world revolving around herself and those of her class. And the other who comes from a poor, dysfunctional family in Florida, who is determined to make a successful life for herself in the cutthroat world of broadcast journalism within a cable news network in Manhattan.
This is the second Anna Pitoniak novel it has been my pleasure to read. Her debut novel - The Futures - I read a year ago and absolutely loved it (!) Normally, I don't care for reading contemporary fiction. But Anna Pitoniak really has a knack for crafting phrases that a reader won't soon forget and creating characters who become real in your mind. Her writing style is breezy and engaging. "NECESSARY PEOPLE" makes for ideal summer reading.
