Fiona MacDougall lives at home with her parents and younger brother, Patrick, and works at a dead-end clerical job. She gets the bright idea to transfer to the computer department to become a programmer, mostly because she thinks taking the test to apply will get her an afternoon off. She manages to pass the test and move into her new department, but it's a nightmare with a new boss and unfriendly co-workers.
Meanwhile, Patrick is constantly getting in trouble (sometimes with Fiona's help), so the homefront is rocky also. Fiona manages to navigate all mostly because she's too oblivious to notice when she gets in trouble.
This was a fun book, a well-written series of anecdotes, fast-paced and easy to read. A few times I felt the humor was too forced, but mostly I enjoyed it very much and will read more books by this author.
