Description
BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic to the Stars.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, she can't actually afford it—not any of it. Her job writing at Successful Saving magazine 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. She tries cutting back. But none of her efforts succeeds. Her 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. Praise for Sophie Kinsella and Confessions of a Shopaholic "A hilarious tale . . . hijinks worthy of classic I Love Lucy episodes . . . too good to pass up."USA Today "Kinsella's Bloomwood is plucky and funny. . . . You won't have to shop around to find a more winning protagonist."People "If a crème brûlée could be transmogrified into a book, it would be Confessions of a Shopaholic."The Star-Ledger "A have-your-cake-and-eat-it romp, done with brio and not a syllable of moralizing. . . . Kinsella has a light touch and puckish humor."Kirkus Reviews
