Confessions of a Shopaholicby Sophie Kinsella
Synopses & Reviews
Rebecca Bloomwood is a financial journalist — she spends her working life telling others how to manage their money. On the surface, she has what most twenty-five year olds only dream of: a flat in the trendiest part of London, 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 barely pays her rent, let alone her monthly Visa minimum. Still, how can she resist that perfect pair of shoes? Or that designer scarf that's 50% off?
Meanwhile, the credit card companies and bank managers converge like vultures, and their ominous letters grow ever harder to ignore. Becky tries cutting back; she even tries making more money. But nothing seems to work. 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.
