The book is funny and touching at the same time, it also has a very creative storyline. This and Finding Audrey are two of my favorite from Sophie Kinsella

Sophie Kinsella, the name was the only reason I picked up the book. I liked shopoholic series and chic-lit is the best way to beat the winter blues. But, after reading the the summary of the loony plot, I had little expectation from the book and initial chapters just confirmed my gut feeling. Till midway it is just the usual chic-saga of how you screw up everything to stage a miraculous spring back to life like a phoenix. But whoa, there you go..! You are in for a nice and captivating story.
With a pleasant twist and the entertaining end, Twenties girl gets a 3.5 from me. May be, may be….I liked it more than shopaholic series!

Definitely one of the best books I've ever read! I laughed, I cried, I became sentimental at times. Sadie came alive for me. She hit home for me the fact that the elderly were once young and foolish and lived, laughed, cried, loved and danced. I did not want this book to end. Having read all of Sophie Kinsella's books, this was by far my favourite, bringing out so many emotions. Enjoy!

Funny, sad at times, interesting, intriguing, perfect! Out of all Kinsella's books, this one is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!. Highly suggesting it!

This was the one of the last sophie kinsella books i had yet to read, and I don't know what was keeping me from reading it. From the overview, it seemed like a book I would like, I love Sophie Kinsella and I have a love for all things 1920's era, I guess I was just put off by the size. However, once I started this book I was mad at myself for putting it off so long! Without a doubt my favorite Kinsella book, and I loved that this story did not only feature her usual love story. This book made me laugh and almost cry at points, the author did a great job of really making likeable characters, and making the reader want to know all about their family ties. This is a really special book, especially if you love (fictional) art history.

MariePat Mar 11, 2010

This is book is about two characters Lara Lington and Sadie Lancaster. Lara is living in present day England, her life is falling apart trying to piece together her broken life after her business partner has run off and left her to run their headhunting business all on her own as well as dealing with a tattered love life. She is also dealing with a crazy family, including her famous Bill Lington, who built a coffee fortune under rather dubious circumstances…. This is one character that plays a major part in the plot of this book, but will you have to read the book to find out.
Sadie Lancaster is Lara’s great aunt who died suddenly at 105. She is someone who has been neglected and forgotten by members of her family. No one really knows or cares very much about her. She appears at her own funeral as a 23 year old ghost dressed in twenties girl [hence the name of the book] Sadie haunts Lara relentlessly and will not go away until Lara agrees to help find Sadie’s long lost necklace, one with a dragon fly with beads. She even demands that Lara stop the funeral, and from this sets both of them off on a series of adventures.
Throughout the book, the two develop a friendship and help each other out to sort out each other lives and they learn about each other and the times period they live in respectively. Sadie helps Lara put together the pieces of her life and Lara helps Sadie to find her necklace (and along the way uncovers a deep dark secret that has been kept hidden from Sadie…)

"I'm allergic to family occasions. Sometimes I think we'd do better as dandelion seeds-no family, no history, just floating off into the world, each on our own piece of fluff.”
Sophie Kinsella, Twenties Girl
