The Rich girl is about two girls, Emma and Sydney, who find a bag stuffed with money in a dumpster in New York City. Sydney's boyfriend Jason, found out about it, and tried to steal it. Jason felt that the only way he could get half of the money would be to kill Emma. A couple of days later, Emma and Jason were walking down the stairs and Jason pushed her. She fell and Landed on her head. Jason felt so terrible about what he had done, he fixed Emma's car. He fixed it so well, she almost died again. He'd cut her brake lines. Emma and Jason had a plan to make Sydney crazy. They did this because they knew that she would go to the police and they couldn't let her do that. This is a great book. It is suspenceful and it keeps you on the edge of your seat. For example, Jason came to sydney's house after Emma hit him with a shovel. He came pretending to be dead, and tried to kill her. The characterization was wonderful too. There were bad things about the book too. Sometimes there was very little detail, like when R.L. Stein was describing Emma. Other times, he used way to much detail, like when he described how Emma killed Jason with a shovel and a rock. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes mystery, suspence and adventure.
