Money can't buy you love, but sometimes you find one when you think you need the other. Georgia's fifteenth year starts in pursuit of money (for a trip to see her favourite band), and ends with an unexpected pay-off - first love. A funny and engaging novel written in a playful, inventive style.
My name is Georgia. I live in a town called Anywhere that has too many shopping malls and not enough skate parks. I like to think of myself as a brilliant creative person, but sometimes I just feel like a sad lonely girl with a big bum.
