Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella

Front Flap: 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 last request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie's possession for more than seventy-five years, and Sadie cannot rest without it. Lara, on the other hand, has a number of ongoing distractions. Her best friend and business partner has run off to Goa, her start-up company is floundering, and she's just been dumped by the "perfect" man. Sadie, however, could care less. 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 each other along the way. 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. This was amazing! I LOVED IT! I kinda saw reading confessions of a shopaholic the same type of girl in the other books, like thinking the same way, and they were alot alike, but this one it's alike but also totally different. and the story is so great, it's unique and it was so fun to read about Sadie and how she could do all those things for Lara. It was kinda annoying at the beginning though when Sadie kepy whining and saying like do it do it do it! or now now now! but she stopped that after a little bit haha and it was hilarious how she yelled things in people's ears and hey just glossed over, I can so imagine that right now, and also how spirited and lively she was and the difference she made, especially ratting out Uncle Bill, ugh not how a man should be right? But I really liked this book, and Sophie Kinsella is a great author fer shure.

  1. I loved this book!
    It was the book that I actually could see the conclusion before I finished the book, but the characters were amazing so I didn't have time to get bored.
