Learn how to live the life you want, not just the life you can afford!
Managing your money is like going to the dentist or standing in line at the DMV. Nobody wants to do it, but at some point, it's inevitable: you need to clean your teeth, renew your license, and manage your personal finances like a grown-up. Whether you're struggling to pay off student loan debt, ready to stop living paycheck to paycheck, or have finally accepted that your Beanie Baby collection will never pay off, tackling your finances may seem immensely intimidating. But it doesn't have to be. By approaching personal finance as a game - something that requires you to set clear goals, as well as face challenges you must "beat" - personal finance can not only be easy to understand, but it can also be fun!
In Get Money, personal finance expert Kristin Wong shows you the exact steps to getting more money in your pocket without letting it rule your life. Through a series of challenges designed to boost your personal finance IQ, interviews with other leading financial experts, and exercises tailored to help you achieve even your biggest goals, you'll learn valuable skills such as:
- Building a budget that (gasp) actually works
- Super-charging a debt payoff plan
- How to strategically hack your credit score
- Negotiating like a shark (or at least a piranha)
- Side-hustling to speed up your money goals
- Starting a lazy investment portfolio...and many more!
Simply put, with this gamified guide to personal finance, you'll no longer stress about understanding how your finances work - you'll finally "get" money.

I enjoyed what this book had to say about money and obtaining it. I feel like this is a book that all high schoolers should read.
