Scorgie, a financial consultant and author of Rich by Thirty: A Young Adult's Guide to Financial Success and Rich by Forty: A Young Couple's Guide to Building Net Worth, focuses her attention on building financial literacy in young women. In an informal, friendly tone, Scorgie emphasizes the unique financial challenges that women face from a society that encourages women to become "shopaholics" to the persistent income gap between men and women. This book distinguishes itself among the many personal finance books published in the last decade by addressing a target audience of young women those just beginning their financial journey into budgeting, home ownership, and relationships. Scattered with cautionary tales based on the financial mishaps of other women, Scorgie encourages young women to educate themselves and take charge of their finances before someone else takes charge for them. Scorgie offers examples aimed at both American and Canadian audiences, quizzes to engage readers and ends with a 30-day financial challenge. This is a practical and approachable book for young female readers to enjoy.
