Millions of readers have come to adore New York Times best-selling author Sophie Kinsella’s irrepressible heroine. Meet Becky Bloomwood, America’s favorite shopaholic – a young woman with a big heart, big dreams…and just one little weakness.
Becky 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 the bank –letters with large red sums she can t bear to read–and they re getting ever harder to ignore.
She tries cutting back. 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 her–forever.
Sophie Kinsella has brilliantly tapped into our collective consumer conscience to deliver a novel of our times–and a heroine who grows stronger every time she weakens. Becky 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 in the (bank) balance.
