Synopsis

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.

To be perfectly honest, I cant exactly pick one of Sophie Kinsellas books to call my favorite. Every one is more fun,, hilarious, and heartwarming than the last. But this book has to be among some of her best! The characters of Lara and Sadie have such strong chemistry, and Sadie manages to mess up Laras life in ways that will have you in fits of laughter. I would reccommend this book to all of my friends and probably even some of my enemies. Its a great read.

BookLender review by Reads a ton on 2010-03-28 14:02:58

I was really excited for another Kinsella book, but ultimately found myself wanting to be done reading this book. Kinsella typically writes flawed, but funny characters who seem to find themselves in odd predicaments. But this one disappointed. I felt like skipping parts, though I didn't, simply to be through. It was at times almost embarassing to read a character [Sadie] that was rude and impetuous. Ultimately, the story was brought to a simply OK conclusion. Not Kinsella's best, but I will continue to read her books, as they don't typically disappoint.
