Taylor is feeling left behind. Living alone with her depressed mother, she has to take charge of all the household chores and grocery shopping, while her friends are starting to get interested in clothes, make-up, and boys. So when she meets Kat - a pretty, popular, older girl - she is desperate to be her friend. And it's such fun to go shopping together - Kat knows all the best places to buy clothes. But before long Kat is encouraging Taylor to dip into the housekeeping money so shecan buy new things, and soon Taylor finds herself in a terrible situation... * A direct, emotional style which will engage readers from the first page * Shopping theme will attract girl readers, for whom shopping is the number one leisure activity * Deals memorably with problems of loneliness during adolescence

I read this book pretty quickly. It pulls you in right away and leaves you actually thinking about why things were the way they were.
