CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC by SOPHIE KINSELLA
Going Broke was never this much fun...
Becky Bloomwood has a fabulous flat in London's trendiest
neighborhood, a troupe of glamorous socialite friends, and a
closet brimming with the season's must-haves. The only
trouble is that she can't actually afford it -- not any of
it. Her job writing at Successful Savings not only
bores her to tears, it doesn't pay much at all. And lately
Becky's been chased by dismal letters from Visa and the
Endwich Bank--letters with large red sums she can't bear to
read--and they're getting harder to ignore. She tries
cutting back; she even tries making more money. But none of
her efforts succeeds. Becky's only consolation is to buy
herself something...just a little something...
Finally a story arises that Becky actually cares about, and
her front-page article catalyzes a chain of events that will
transform her life--and the lives of those around
Sophie Kinsella has brillantly tapped into our collective
consumer conscience to deliver a novel of our times--and a
heroine who grows stronger every time she weakens. Becky
Bloomwood's hilarious schemes to pay back her debts are as
endearing as they are desperate. Her "confessions" are the
perfect pick-me-up when life is hanging the (bank) balance.
