Can she manage a 7.5?
A little bit better but limited sizes.
27. Scarface by Paul Monette. Good book with a predictable ending. Especially if you have seen the movie, which you probably have, but I have not. 28. Liar's Poker by Michael Lewis. I have read this several times and still find it enjoyable. This time I read it with Too Big to Fail by Andrew Sorkin in mind.
