Cara Peroni is an unemployed, dateless, city-dweller who thinks a job offer from The Ion Group is the silver bullet that will jumpstart her life. But one day of working for the mysterious medical education company has her thinking that the only jumping she might do is out of a conference room window. Her boss speaks in circles and challenges employees to feats of strength; her coworkers hoard office supplies like squirrels do acorns; and her office manager spits so much venom that Cara clamors for an antidote.Unfortunately, her love life parallels her career and dating disasters lurk in every corner. In spite of dining with a man who confesses to be missing a stomach, and finding out that the guy who says he loves pets actually breeds rats and snakes in his apartment, Cara's optimism somehow prevails as she hunts to find a needle in a haystack under the very last straw.Dodging barbs from her parents and bayonets from her boss, Cara navigates the road less traveled without using a map. But with the help of her friends and someone very special she realizes that she just may be her own best compass.
