Host Jennifer Kemp interviews Ali Liebgott about her new novel, "Cha-Ching!" The story revolves around Theo, a scruffy, big-hearted and quick-witted heroine, who has been delivered luckless into a culture where the winners and losers have already been decided. Her adventures in getting over take her from SF to NYC, from dyke bars to telemarketing outfits, casinos to free clinics. Liebegott tells a story of what it means to be young and broke in America.
