Sophie Kinsella's debut is a rollicking romp through the perils of shopping and spending, spending, spending! Becky can't resist a sale, and she's only a little overdrawn on her VISA. Besides, that new scarf is just too cute to pass up. Readers will laugh aloud at Becky's retail adventures as she finds new and creative ways to relieve her increasingly burdensome credit card debt. Emily Gray's narration bounces along with Becky and her buying whims, while delivering a humorous account of what happens when credit goes bad.

"Rebecca Bloomwood shops. She knows prices at stores all over London and way overspends her lines of credit. When bill collectors come calling, she hides, inventing lies, excuses, and evasions until the inevitable happens. Emily Gray captures Becky's addiction and optimistic denial with compassion and insight. She also drives us crazy with the stupidity of Becky's actions. The shopaholic's friends, family, and love interests receive thoughtful consideration under Gray's care, each carrying a distinct voice, none overdone. Gray's change in tone as Rebecca comes to grips with the effects of her actions on others, and her growing awareness of her own worth, closes the account on exactly the right note. R.P.L.
