The review of this Book prepared by E.B. Cho

Model Margo Sullivan returns to California broke and shamed internationally. Although her best friends Laura and Kate and Josh are quick to welcome her back, they let her know that she needs to do something a little more substantial with her life than shop and primp. Margo and Josh cook up an idea to open a second hand store for all of the many things she's collected over the years. Margo embraces the idea and goes into business with Laura and Kate while struggling with her feelings for Josh--someone she'd spent most of her life looking at as a brother.
