Description of this Book

Her witty, compassionate voice haunts me like no other. --Joan LarkinTheo, our scruffy, big-hearted, and quick-witted heroine, is not so much down on her luck as delivered luckless into a culture where the winners and losers have already been decided. Her adventures in getting over take her from San Francisco to New York City, from dyke bars to telemarketing outfits, casinos to free clinics. With the signature poet's voice that has won her awards and acclaim, Ali Liebegott investigates the conjoined hearts of hope and addiction in an unforgettable story of what it means to be young and broke in America.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

Awards Commended for Lambda Literary Awards (Lesbian Fiction) 2014
NZ Review Cha-Ching! is a rush - the clatter of youth on the angry move, the rattling of dreamy gambles in crappy apartments, the desperate crash of falling for someone despite the million reasons why and the bang! bang! bang! of our tender hearts. --Daniel Handler author of Why We Broke Up <br><br> Cha-Ching! is so raw with need that I found myself itching that addict's itch to chase the seemingly impossible. --Karolina Waclawiak, deputy editor of The Believer and author of How to Get Into the Twin Palms <br><br> An open-hearted, deeply romantic story about a fucked-up dyke, her pit bull, her search for love, her tenuous grasp on hope, a pretty girl and the literal spin of the wheel. --Sarah Schulman, author of The Gentrification of the Mind: Witness to a Lost Imagination <br>
