My Review: 4 Stars
“This book was so much fun to read. Sophie Kinsella has a knack of just making you laugh and feel like you are living through the character” ~~ Faith Wanyi
Lara Lington is young and fun. What i loved most about her was that she was so relatable and human. You actually feel like you know her or that Sophie was writing your character traits. She is at the beginning insecure about her life and her relationship. Her aunt Sadie haunts her because she would like to recover her necklace that went missing about 75 years ago. Though Sadie is obnoxious and annoying, (to say the least!) Lara comes to love her and together, Lara is finally able to find herself.
I would recommend this book for any lover of Chick Lit.
Goodreads review: 3.8 Stars
Lara Lington has always had an overactive imagination, but suddenly that imagination seems to be in overdrive. Normal professional twenty-something young women don’t get visited by ghosts. Or do they?
When the spirit of Lara’s great-aunt Sadie-a feisty, demanding girl with firm ideas about fashion, love, and the right way to dance-mysteriously appears, she has one request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie’s possession for more than seventy-five years, because Sadie cannot rest without it.
Lara and Sadie make a hilarious sparring duo, and at first it seems as though they have nothing in common. But as the mission to find Sadie’s necklace leads to intrigue and a new romance for Lara, these very different “twenties” girls learn some surprising truths from and about each other. Written with all the irrepressible charm and humor that have made Sophie Kinsella’s books beloved by millions, Twenties Girl is also a deeply moving testament to the transcendent bonds of friendship and family.
