When your debt is more than your share of the mortgage and your partner's threatening to not only leave, but to tell your mother how out of control your spending is, then you know it's time to face reality and take drastic action. So, for one whole year, Alexis Hall sets out to buy nothing except the bare essentials in a bid to reclaim her life from the retail rollercoaster threatening to pitch her into permanent poverty. That might not sound too hard a task, but when you owe over GBP30,000 and you're consumed by consumerism, just making it to lunchtime without buying a pair of sensational shoes suddenly becomes a life-altering act. "In the Red" is Alexis' hilarious diary - full of fashion and frustration - as she battles to transform herself from a spending junkie to a scrupulous saver. You'll soon realize there's a bit of Alexis in all of us!

MEDIA REVIEWS
``In the Red' provides a humorous look at how she curtailed her spending and offers practical advice on how to get yourself out of debt.' -- Deborah Anderson, Evening Times
`Having resolved to give up all non-essential shopping for a year, Alexis wrote a diary of her daily struggle against temptation and the result, `In the Red,' is a hilarious account of the frustrations and triumphs of her spendthrift year.' -- My Weekly book group
`A witty take on our consumer culture through the eyes of one former addict, `In the Red' is compulsive reading for shopaholics everywhere.' -- My Weekly book group
`Her addiction to handbags and fashion accessories, the nonstop journey into a quagmire of debt which is felt by millions in this country was there to be read in this essential and humourous work of literature. The limitless expenditure and the conclusive battle within herself to transform herself is both inspiring and an effective psychological doorway to regain one's own self respect and dignity.' -- Sajid Hussain, Scotland's Chronicle
`Somewhat in similar vein to Sophie Kinsella's shopaholic books, there is great benefit in reading and learning from his work of literature by a unique Scottish writer. Both entertaining and empathic, one cannot go wrong with this book, it is a must for any reader to have, if you fall into debt and need a bit of a 'lift' read `In the Read,' ye cannae go wrong!!!' -- Sajid Hussain, Scotland's Chronicle
`The book is humerous and playful as well as depply serious....the openness and wit of Hall's account make `In the Read' compulsive reading for any shopaholic wishing to stop.' -- Stopping Overshopping
