A Teenager's Perspective:
Rebecca Bloomwood (also known as Becky) works as journalist writing articles about how to manage money and savings but she’s got a big problem – she can’t seem to work out her own finances. Shopping solves all her problems, well emotional ones that is. Becky gets into a bunch of debt and tries concocting schemes to save her, but in the end she can’t seem to stop shopping. Despite all these consequences, she manages to gain a special someone who just might be her true love. And she finally stops shopping… well for a little while at least.
This novel was just so fun to read! We breezed through it like there was no tomorrow. Becky was such a down-to-earth and bubbly character that it was such a thrill to read about her. The humor and liveliness of the book made it a quick and easy read. We burst out laughing so many times we lost count (we got some strange looks from people lol). Kinsella made sure that Becky’s life was full of action and absurdity to keep us reading. Definitely, if you need a cheerer-upper or a full on laugh-out-loud moment check this book out! You won’t regret it (;
