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?

Not since Mommie Dearest has there been a transcription of a complex mother-daughter relationship as powerful. I rooted with all my heart for this girl. Ashley Prentice Norton's writing is so gripping, vivid, and moving -- so realistically drawn -- it leaves even the most well-adjusted reader with the chilling knowledge of what it's like to be raised by wolves. The Chocolate Money is devastating and unforgettable. <br>-- Isabel Gillies, author of Happens Every Day and A Year and Six Seconds <br><br> I am not a reader easily shocked, and I was shocked by the brave twists and daring turns of Ashley Norton's compulsively readable The Chocolate Money . This story of a girl coming of age in Chicago, heir to a chocolate fortune and all the spoils and hungers that fortune sparks, is fearless and utterly unputdownable. <br>-- Jennifer Gilmore, author of Something Red and Golden Country<br><br> This is the darkest comedy I've ever read, overflowing with unflinching observations of the elite that are both laugh-out-loud and heart-wrenchingly poignant, all woven with the searing wit of a truly gifted new voice in fiction. <br>-- Jill Kargman, author of Wolves in Chic Clothing <p> The Chocolate Money is the perfect page-turner ... But it's also something more--it's a perceptive portrait of a young woman growing past the world that shaped her. Norton writes with empathy and wisdom about mothers and daughters, and the pain of loving a parent you must escape. <br>-- Jill A. Davis, author of Ask Again Later
