By Luanne Ollivier #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Aug. 18 2009
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

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!

'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.

I love everything about this book the humour, the intrigue Sophie always builds in her stories, the characters. I read it in a day, but thats because I've been waiting so long for the Sophie's next book :)

At first I read the back of this book and thought..This is going to be stupid..But I love Kinsella so I said what the hell I'll read it..

This book was AMAZING Loved every page of it. Very interesting story and I have never read anything like this. I love it so much I gave it to a few of my grade 11 students to read. They also loved it.

One of my favorites by Kinsella..AMAZING job :)

I have been a fan of Sophie Kinsella's easy-breezy novels ever since the first Shopaholic installment. I have to admit though, that her last couple novels have left me entertained, but unfulfilled.
After trudging through the first couple chapters, I began to fear that Twenties Girl would be a major disappointment. Once getting my feet wet, however, I couldn't help but dive right in! Once the plot gets under way, Twenties Girl is a fun and interesting read. I wasn't sure what to expect from Kinsella's attempt at a ghost story/mystery, but I was pleasantly suprised. The characters are great and the main character, Lara, is just as awkward and confused as you would expect from any Kinsella heroine. And Sadie was a ghost that I wouldn't mind hanging around with.
Although you ultimately knew where the story was going to end up, there was a satisfying amount of bumps and twists along the way to keep the pages turning.
Overall, Twenties Girl has been my favourite Kinsella novel since the first two Shopaholics. I was sad when I reached the end.
