Summary, etc.:
In 2012, Beck Dorey-Stein was just scraping by in DC when a posting on Craigslist landed her, improbably, in the Oval Office as one of Barack Obama's stenographers. For five years, Beck was a part of the elite team of men and women who accompanied the president wherever he went, recorder and mic in hand. She got to know everyone from the White House butler to the secret servicemen, advance team, speechwriters, photographers, and press secretaries. On whirlwind trips across time zones, she forged friendships with a tight group of fellow travelers in the bubble -- young men and women who, like her, left their real lives behind to hop aboard Air Force One in service of the president. But as she learned the ropes of protocol, Beck became romantically entangled with one of the President's closest aides, who was already otherwise engaged... Set against the backdrop of the White House, this is the story of a young woman finding friends, falling in love, getting her heart broken, finding her voice as a writer, and finding herself in the process.
