Her only comfort is to buy herself something - just a little something ...Can Becky ever escape from this dream world, find true love, and regain the use of her Switch card?

This book is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! Very well written and highly ADDICTIVE!! Once I started reading this book I was totally HOOKED!! When purchasing this book be prepared to buy the entire series as each book gets better than the next. ;) I disagree with the other reviewer that this book didn't live up to the movie. The movie well and truly let this book down.show moreby Naquita Smith
Do not be mistaken in thinking that this follows the motion picture that has been made as this book is very different. I found that I did not enjoy the book as much as the film and found it lacking in many aspects. It can be very confusing if you build your hopes up waiting for Rebecca Bloomwood to write her very funny columns in Successful Saving! However it is certainly worth reading to see whether you like it as you may enjoy it.show moreby Hayley
