About this deal

In 2014 she published a Young Adult novel Finding Audrey about a teenage girl with social anxiety and her madcap family, and in January 2018, Sophie published her first illustrated book for young readers about the charming adventures of a mother-daughter fairy duo, Mummy Fairy and Me (also published as Fairy Mom and Me).

Her job writing at Successful Saving magazine not only bores her to tears, it doesn’t pay much at all. Told with a wit and humour that manages to breakthrough the relentlessness of Rebecca's precarious position. I saw so much of myself in the main characters spending personality that it just made me laugh all the way thru reading it. Conspicuous consumption, measuring your worth as a person against material goods, it rings all too shockingly true. Half way into the book I felt really sad because I know that there is so many people who this is their reality.

If there is a discount, my eyes immediately focused on the discount and bought goods even though at home there are items like that. moment for her, and no growth or anything in her character, and that somewhere down the line she marries The Guy, I decided to stop reading for good.

I think it's hilarious that these books dominate the "chick-lit" scene when they are, in fact, the most sexist books I've managed to come across. Even though she is the master of a wrong decision, her point of view can trigger the reader to keep reading. Sometimes, my willpower can overrule that temptation, though passing through the Times Square and the Fifth Ave area multiple times during the week for work really weakens my resolve.

However, she really grows up in 300 pages and even though she still has her flaws, I really began to respect her and want to continue on with the series. The first is a plot that is inconsistent in describing the situation in a narrative that is too long, and sometimes the explanation is too short. I gave up credit cards as my solutions and it appears that she finds her own way to keep her credit and her life good by the books end. There will always be a sexy, successful, intelligent, no-bullshit kind of guy who will find your stupidity and poor impulse control endearing. It’s impossible not to fall in love with Becky and her antics, and this latest offering doesn’t disappoint.

This book had me smiling from the beginning to the end, and if Becky felt a little bit too dumb or too flawed at the beginning, I thought her character development was top notch and, by the end of the book, she felt even more human and relatable.But I liked the movie and this does sound enjoyable (even if parts of it are a bit bonkers) Great review!
