Book Review: Twenties Girl

Twenties Girl is by Sophia Kinsella there are 669 pages. It is set in London and the main character is Lara Lington.
The Summary
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 last request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie’s possession for more than seventy-five years, and Sadie cannot rest without it. Lara, on the other hand, has a number of ongoing distractions. Her best friend and business partner has run off to Goa, her start-up company is floundering, and she’s just been dumped by the “perfect” man.

Sadie, however, could care less.
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 each other along the way. 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.

 The Review
It all starts when Lara goes to here great-aunts funeral, there a ghost named Sadie starts talking to her and persuades her to help in her quest to search for her necklace. That was the essential motive until her great  aunt Sadie deciededs shes runnign the show. I loved the book I truly felt the emotion that each character was feeling and didn't know what to expect. Lara must not only find the necklace but deal with a crazy self absobed ghost bothering her. Lara isn't in the best place in her life- shes obsessed with getting her boyfriend back, stressed about her job and is hiding everything from her parents. Along the way Sadie and Lara learn from each other. Lara learns to relax, move on and be more opened to different things as well as learning the truth about her bbf Natalia and about her family history whihc is essentially Sadies past. Sdaie learns that she can't get everything she wants and learns that it doesn't hurt to be giving to another person.
Sophia Kinsella to me oesn't dissapoint and I think this is one of my favorites be her because some books you can guess whats going to happen this one, I honestly thought there would be a different ending but then again it's good to be surprised. She kept her light funny and misschevious writing alive through her new delightful characters.
Any body who likes sophia kinsella should give this a definite read. I personally loved it!
