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 "creme brulee "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.
