Ten-year old Bettina and her mother, Babs, are heiresses to one of America's biggest fortunes. But Bettina's whole life is overshadowed by that of her beautiful, hedonistic mother, the glamorous but domineering Babs.
An innocent little girl. A phenomenal fortune. A mother like no other. Ten-year old Bettina and her mother, Babs, are heiresses to one of America's biggest fortunes. But Bettina's whole life is overshadowed by that of her beautiful, hedonistic mother, the glamorous but domineering Babs. At fifteen, Bettina escapes to New England and an exclusive, preppy boarding school called Cardiss, where she hopes she can finally start to figure out who she really is. But while she thinks that fitting in with the other students represents her best chance of surviving the cliques and politics of Cardiss, soon she's making choices that show that Babs' maternal shadow still looms long over her. Can Bettina ever break free to forge her own identity - or is she simply doomed to being her mother's daughter forever?
"Racy, scandalous and shocking, this is a stay-up-all-night, pass-it-on-to-your-friends read." easyliving, Sept 2012 "Dark humour, a quick pace and an intriguing 'who's the father?' mystery...keeps the reader hooked until the last twist. Be prepared to devour this novel in one sitting." We Love This Book "Packed with an unflinching honesty and acerbic wit, The Chocolate Money is the perfect coming-of-age novel that will have you laughing through even its darkest moments" Stylist
