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.

    I really thought that overall this was a great read. Becky Bloomwood was a very fun and relatable character and many shopaholics can easily relate to her constant need to spend money. The only downfalls of this book were the beginning was slow and drawn out, and the ending ended too soon. By the end of this book you really just want to pick up the next one.

  • Pretty Good

    This book was a pretty good introduction to Becky Bloomwood. There wasn't much in it for Dialogue and, me, not being British I wasn't sure what some of the stores and designers were. But all in all it was a very pleasant read, I loved the end, and it made me look forward very much to the next installment.
