Art Boss Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Artist Piper Perish has moved from her hometown of Houston, Texas, to New York City. Her days are spent exploring; her nights are filled with painting. It's her lifelong dream come true.... Except life in the city isn't as glamorous as it looks from afar. Piper's high-pressure work as an assistant to a famous modern artist takes away time from her own art. And Piper's new friend Grace, a budding activist, has Piper beginning to wonder if making great art is really enough.
In a story that stands alone but can be listened to as a companion novel to Piper Perish, acclaimed author Kayla Cagan returns with Piper's powerful and utterly authentic journey of growing up into a strong, independent young woman - as she learns how to make life about art and how to make that art matter.
Art Boss will have listeners asking big questions along with Piper. What is art for? What can art do? And how can a young artist change the world?

I love this book with my entire life, and the author as well. Been reading this since it came out in October. Didn't finish it sooner cause i felt too overwhelmed/depressed to actually pick up any book and read it all the way through. But this baby didn't miss a beat. Everytime that i opened this one up and felt motivated enough to continue, it felt like a soothing balm to my soul. I felt like i could understand/identify with Piper and that just made me smile every time.
Not really necessary to read the first book, Piper Perish, if you don't wish to since your essentially reading somebody's journal. A slice of life kind of thing? But man, do yourself a favor and pick that one up too. Seeing the growth of the main character and how she holds her own and is just such a bad-ass fem is such a pleasure. Liked this one more than the last one, and I'm hoping that's what also happens when the next book comes out!
These are my fresh off finishing this book thoughts. I recieved an ARC copy of this book as a giveaway prize from the author but i just felt like sharing this story and how much i love it/has helped me creatively with the world so i highlighted a few quotes. Annotated a bit and left that ARC at a little free library for someone to pick up and get to love "Piper Paris" *wink, wink*- as much as i do... this is a review of a full finished copy i purchased myself.
If you don't know, Art Boss is actually a follow up novel to Piper Perish, another book by this author. I didn't realize this until I started writing this review and doing some more research, so that may have been the biggest and first flaw. I found the main character to be pretty flat, I didn't really click with her and I didn't feel the need to keep reading about her experiences. I also felt like I was missing a lot of information.
Since I had no idea that this was a sequel, I didn't know about Piper or her artwork, so when the author jumps right in talking about art pieces she assumes that I know which ones she is talking about (I am guess that was in the first book), but I had no clue and immediately felt lost. I was thinking that it was being kept secretive for a reason, but then the character starts to reproduce them and then I got more information but the full one never came. I made it through a quarter of the book before I gave up, between the lack of information that I felt like I needed, and my lack of connection to the main character I just had to put it down.
I was also feeling some strong anxiety about what was to come in the plot, and while that is normally a good thing for a book to do, since I was not enthralled with the book itself, I felt like I was riling myself up for nothing.
I always feel bad about not finishing a book, but this one just was not for me, maybe if you have read Piper Perish and really enjoyed it this would be a good one for you, either way, I would suggest reading that book first so you have more context if you pick this one up.
This is Cagan’s second book. It’s an outstanding read. Piper Perish is a believable character who tells her story in the form of journal entries over the course of her first couple of months after her arrival in NYC. The writing is excellent and Piper is a believable character. This is a book for readers of any age.
