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.
