Becky has a fab flat in London and all the most fashionable clothes. But she can't really afford any of it, her job is boring and doesn't bring in anywhere near enough for her to afford her lifestyle. She is sinking fast into debt. She tries to spend less, she tries making more, but she seems incapable of getting out of this hole, and she just keeps buying.
Funny and silly quick read. The writing was very good but I found Becky rather pathetic and weak-willed. I wanted to shake her and make her see what an idiot she was being. I was quite shocked at how unwilling to deal with her own problems she was, however she did seem to be making headway towards the end of the book. I will read the rest of the series in hopes that Becky grows up a little.
