The bestselling Fabulous Girl returns with more advice for the modern woman.

Building on the enormous and continuing international success of their first book, The Fabulous Girl’s Guide to Decorum, Kim Izzo and Ceri Marsh are back with more invaluable advice on how to travel with grace over the rocky terrain of work, relationships, sex and friendship.

Code Red is a modern woman’s survival guide to managing the often delicate and extreme moments of her sophisticated life. Witty and frank, Code Red offers etiquette guidance on subjects relevant to the evolving Fabulous Girl, such as dating men with kids, ending affairs, surviving corporate mergers, changing careers mid-stream, or finding your husband in bed with another woman.

In addition to the playful but frank advice Marsh and Izzo provide, they also reacquaint readers with the unforgettable Fabulous Girl, a character who vividly brings to life the etiquette lessons of Code Red.

A beautifully designed original trade paperback, with spot illustrations throughout, Code Red is a wonderful graduation and friendship gift, a valuable handbook, and an engaging read.
