Twenties Girl

by

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.

    I loved this book.At first I thought that this is going to be just another Sophie Kinsella book, full of chicklit drama, but it sort of surprised me. There are several Sophie Kinsella trademarks I hav...

    I will never understand what kind of Jedi mind tricks Sophie Kinsella employs with her books. If any other author wrote this story I would have thrown it down in frustration. I'd be writing a scathing...
