REVIEW: 4.5 STARS OUT OF 5

Sophie Kinsella's Twenties Girl has become one of my favorite novels. I read this book in under 48 hours. I could not for the life of me put this page-turner down. Kinsella wrote Twenties Girl with great charm, wit, and humor. It was definitely an easy read. The story takes place in London, England. It's a story about a twenty-something year old woman named Lara. After her great Aunt Sadie dies at the age of one hundred and five years, Lara is the only one who is able to see her ghost. The ghost of Sadie is also in her twenties. Together they go on an adventure to solve a mystery about a missing necklace that Sadie must retrieve in order to find peace. Along the way Lara, with Sadie's help, tries to work out her own problems within her business and love life. I recommend this book to anyone who is fond of the 1920s, mystery, romance, and chick lit.
