Twenties Girl - Book Review
The ninth book I read for 24 books in 2017 was Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella.
Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella
Paperback: 448 pages Publisher: Dial Press Trade Paperback; Reprint Edition (March 9, 2010)
Lara Lington is struggling. She's just been dumped by her boyfriend with no real explanation and she's recently gone into business with a close friend, who has since disappeared on an open ended holiday, leaving her in the lurch. With a failing business and a broken heart, she has to attend a funeral with her worried parents for her great aunt Sadie who nobody in the family really knew but lived to be 105. During the funeral she meets and eventually gets stuck with Sadie's ghost, who needs her help, finding a necklace she owned.
While Sadie truly needs Lara's help, soon we find that Lara needed Sadie's help too. The two make a great duo, even if nobody else ever learns that Sadie is still there and hasn't moved on to the afterlife.
I have to be honest, this was the book I was look forward to reading the least. I'm sorry, I'm just not into ghost stories. At least, not if they aren't scary. I was proved wrong by this book though, as it may in fact be my favorite of all of the Sophie Kinsella books and I've been singing her praises all year. I literally laughed out loud, and I full on ugly cried, with tears, snot, and loud sobbing.
