Book Description

March 9 2010
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chick lit to warm your heart Aug. 18 2009
By Luanne Ollivier #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Sophie Kinsella is best known for her Shopaholic series (and recent movie). But she has written 'stand alone' novels, such as this new release from Random House Canada that are just as captivating.

Twenties Girl introduces us to Lara Lington. She's attending the funeral of her Great Aunt Sadie, who has passed away at the ripe old age of 105, with her family. None of the family really seems to have known or visited Sadie. When a voice shouts out in the middle of the funeral "Where's my necklace?", Lara is taken aback. it seems that no one else can hear the voice - or see the beautiful young woman, dressed in twenties flapper style, doing the shouting.

Lara is stressed - she's still in love with her former boyfriend and is having work issues and money woes. Is she losing it or is she really seeing the ghost of her Aunt Sadie? Yes, she really is..... Lara reluctantly agrees to help Sadie find her lost necklace.

Kinsella has created not one, but two characters that you immediately fall in love with. Lara is scattered, but warm hearted and the kind of person you'd love to have as a friend. Sadie is by turns exasperating, funny, loving and tragic. Their combined story is comic and heartwarming. The interaction between Sadie and Lara is priceless.

I enjoyed this story very much. It combined the best of Kinsella's warm writing with a little bit more. My grandmother is 95 and I so enjoy hearing stories of her life. Twenties Girl will entertain you, but will hopefully make you think about an older person that you know who may have some amazing stories to tell.

Destined to be another bestseller and a five star read for me - highly recommended

4.0 out of 5 stars Tastefully farfetched with charming characters Aug. 23 2013
By Cee Ess TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
Twenty-seven year old Lara is feigning to have it all, except for a few little issues. Her ex-boyfriend gave no explanation for their split and her business partner took off leaving behind their struggling recruitment start-up. To make matters worse, Lara has to attend the family funeral of her great-aunt Sadie who she never knew and could care less about. That is until Sadie's ghost appears to her only, pestering a bewildered Lara into searching for a missing necklace, meanwhile introducing her to a more spirited side of life.

Rich with wit, surprises, hilarity and a moody yet lovable cast of characters (except for Uncle Bill, he's just unscrupulous), 'Twenties Girl' fills the pages with sparkle thanks to Aunt Sadie. Although it blathers on a little and over-uses the word gobsmacked, this is a snappy, delightful read in the world of chick lit, and would probably make a good movie. Go along for the ride....tally ho!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read Sophie Kinsella Book July 16 2013
By Aly
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wow! This book is soooo good! Possibly THE BEST Sophie Kinsella book I've read, except for "I've Got Your Number". The story is rich and so well written. The characters are strong and well defined and the family ties throughout the book are refreshingly true to life. I wasn't going to buy this book, because the title threw me off a bit, as I thought it was for a 20 something audience, but boy am I glad I did. So good and so addictive. Sophie Kinsella has such a gift and this book is a pefect example of her gift at its finest.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Must Read May 29 2013
By Vivien
Format:Kindle Edition
It's fun, quirky and a big page turner. Lara Lington is an amazingly well-crafted character by Sophie Kinsella. Her adventures with her great-aunt Sadie were extraordinary. And the bit of romance in this novel ties all of it together.

By Mrs. Q: Book Addict TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
'Twenties Girl' is a light, fun, entertaining read. I bought the ebook through Sony, based on the author. I've read all the Shopaholic books and really enjoyed Kinsella's writing. This is not at all like the Shopaholic books, but good nonetheless. Lara Lington has to attend her 105 year old great aunt Sadie's funeral. None of the family members really know much about Sadie or her roaring 20's past. Only a few family members attend the funeral, and it seems quite cold. When Sadie's ghost appears before Lara, Lara learns quickly she must agree to help Sadie find her lost neckless if she wants Sadie to stop yelling at her.
Lara Lington is going through a rough patch, she withdrew all her savings to start up a headhunting company with her best friend, but her best friend has run off to Goa to live with her new boyfriend. Lara's boyfriend Josh dumped her by email and Lara has no idea why. She's devastated and wants Sadie to help her get him back. Lara and Sadie compliment each other in the novel, they help each other come out of their shell. Sadie learns that she is not the long lost forgotten aunt. She really is famous, and her long lost boyfriend did in fact always love her. Yes, we have some romance in the novel and we have many twists and turns.
I really enjoyed this novel. It was not what I expected but I quickly fell in love with the characters. If I would have knew it was a ghost story, I probably wouldn't have picked it up but i'm glad I stuck with it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chic-lit at it's best! Aug. 18 2009
Format:Hardcover
Another hit by Sophie Kinsella. I loved the characters in this book and they constantly had me laughing.One of the things I love about Sophie Kinsella's writting is you always feel extreme embarassment for the main character, and twenties girl was no different. The big difference was that someone else was forcing her to say and do the embarassing things. I couldn't put it down, especially for the last 100 pages. A little bit of mystery, love, and comedy all rolled into one!
