Confessions of a Reluctant Recessionista

UK Publisher: Arrow

Cassie Cavanagh has never minded being ‘just a PA’. In fact she’s quite content with her lot. She has a city job she kind of enjoys – after all she is indispensable, you know. She has a boyfriend who showers her with gifts – what more could a girl want? And she earns enough to (just about ) finance the luxuries she’s become used to. But Cassie hadn’t banked on being made redundant. Nor had she pictured her boyfriend leaving her for an older woman! Nor had she ever imagined needing to take financial advice from her student flatmate. Reluctant to embrace the art of being thrifty, if Cassie’s going to survive the recession in style, she’s a lot to learn about budgeting. And even more to learn about herself…
