Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella

Title:Twenties Girl

Author:Sophie Kinsella


Who Should Read It?This is for everyone who has ever enjoyed a good chick lit book, no matter what kind it is.

What I Have to Say:Go Sophie Kinsella for writing a ghost story! And for doing it oh so well. Frankly, I am ridiculously impressed. I feel like so many authors lately are trying to do the supernatural thing, and don't get me wrong, I LOVE it. I am a total supernatural fan. But I feel like it's really hard to write a book about something supernatural and have it accesible to everyone (not boys in this case, but you know what I mean), even those totally not into supernatural things. Sophie Kinsella has not just succeeded, she has mastered the art. "Twenties Girl" is fun and quirky, and every twenty something has been there and done that, minus the ghost.
Reading this book was so much fun that I just KNOW Sophie Kinsella had a rockin'time researching and writing this book.
An easy breezy totally necessary read!

Summary (from has always had an overactive imagination. Now she wonders if she is losing her mind. Normal twenty-something girls just don't get visited by ghosts! But inexplicably, the spirit of Lara's great aunt Sadie - in the form of a bold, demanding Charleston-dancing girl - has appeared to make one last request: Lara must track down a missing necklace Sadie simply can't rest without. Lara's got enough problems of her own. Her start-up company is floundering, her best friend and business partner has run off to Goa, and she's just been dumped by the love of her life. But as Lara spends time with Sadie, life becomes more glamorous and their treasure hunt turns into something intriguing and romantic. Could Sadie's ghost be the answer to Lara's problems and can two girls from different times end up learning something special from each other?
