What was the name of a book...?
Its been a while since i read but the basic plot goes like this: a poor girl from the country goes to visit her rich friend in the city. Her friend tries to make her more sophisticated by introducing her to the latest fashions and all the thing that made up her world. Turns out the friends father lost all his fortune after he invested it in a shady business. They end up having to move to the countryside where the rich girl finds out who her real friends are and the things that really matter in life. Then some other stuff happens and the poor girl helps her friends family adjust to having to make an honest living. They grow up and the poor girl ends up marrying the rich girl's brother. The book was set sometime in the 19th century or so. its a very nice story and i really want to know what it is.

I believe the book for which you are looking is An Old Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott.
In case you wanted to check if it looks like the right one, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/An_Old_Fashioned_Girl Wikipedia's description or some of the reviews http://www.amazon.com/Old-Fashioned-Girl-Puffin-Cl... on Amazon.
By the way, you can read it online at http://digital.library.upenn.edu/women/alcott/girl... or http://www.online-literature.com/alcott/old_fashio... or download it from http://www.gutenberg.org/etext/2787 Gutenberg and read it offline.
I hope this helps.
