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.

    " I really enjoyed listening to it. very light and heart warming and gives you a fantastic genre in there. a great thing to hear in your ride to/from your work/college. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Renee Martel | 2/13/2014

    " I thought this was going to be just another ghost story. Boy was I wrong! It was so good and funny that I caught myself laughing out loud. I want Sophie to write another one real soon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fouli | 2/5/2014

    " a really beautiful and entertaining book!I really enjoyed it and I would definetely recoment it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Antonette | 1/28/2014

    " In het begin had ik een klein beetje moeite met dit verhaal omdat ik helemaal niks heb met geesten. Gelukkig werd het boek steeds komischer en uiteindelijk zelfs bijna even hilarisch als de meeste andere boeken van Sophie Kinsella. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Toninji | 1/28/2014

    " This is the 3rd book of Sophie Kinsella that I have read and I admit, this is an "okay" book after a long day's work. It would be nowhere near my favorite books list nor would I recommend it to others with gusto. If it just so happened that you find yourself wanting a light story with ghost element, this might be your cup of tea. For me, it's average. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane Smith | 1/19/2014

    " I absolutely loved this book. It was highly unexpected in terms of unique from Sophia Kinsella's other books. It was a great story and I would definetly read this book again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sieni A.M. | 12/11/2013

    " cute, fun read; different to any other chick lit i've come across. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Caroline Abdallah | 12/5/2013

    " a very enjoyable easy read "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eleni vanRoden | 11/17/2013

    " at first it was a tad difficult for me to get into, as I was getting quite embarrassed for Lara. However, it definitely came out with a great plot, lovely little sentiments, and kept me turning pages through to the end. I will absolutely be reading more from Sophie Kinsella after this! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tasha | 9/29/2013

    " I found this a bit different to Sophie's other books, but loved it just as much. Her usual sweet loveable heroine was there, but it was the unusual best friend that I liked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karren | 8/14/2013

    " i always admire sophie. i hope they will make another movie of her book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Whitney | 7/18/2013

    " I couldn't finish it because it was so bad. I've read several of Kinsella's books, but this one actually annoyed me... and I can fight through predictable, formulaic, cheesy, etc. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kat | 6/16/2013

    " Very cute. Loved the message. Tally-ho! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debie Esmeralda | 3/6/2013

    " I want my own Ed! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wendi | 6/19/2012

    " This was a book club pick. A light, fluff read in my opinion. I've always been a fan of the twenties so of course I loved the details of the makeup & hair. While it was predictable, it was still a fun story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marion | 11/22/2011

    " Light hearted book about Lara and her great-aunt Sadie Lancaster and the search for a missing dragonfly necklace. It gives a good insight about 20's Flapper fashion, and is very funny in parts.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deahn | 11/16/2011

    " actually worked out to be a really lovely story. I listened to the audio version. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy Barber | 10/7/2011

    " Not as funny as the Shopaholic series but unmistakable Kinsella. Loved it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steph | 9/30/2011

    " I just love Sophie Kinsella's characters, she's good at creating really relatable ones. Hilarious as always, but also kind of deep and very moving at times too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Angela Blackburn | 8/13/2011

    " This book really picked up at the end. There were times where I wanted to shout at Lara and Sadie and the other characters, do this! Don't let that happen! But it worked so well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi Petterson | 8/12/2011

    " I think Sophie Kinsella is hilarious. I literally laugh out loud when I read her books. Is she formulaic? Absolutely. But her formula is entertaining and funny cotton candy. I enjoy some fluffy, cloudy cotton candy sometimes. I need it sometimes and she never lets me down. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Leigh Hurd | 6/9/2011

    " Well - I did Not actually read it. I could not get beyond the third chapter when I realized I was reading about a ghost. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 5/23/2011

    " Adorable, funny and touching but not icky and cheesy "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Danette | 5/22/2011

    " First digital book I've read! Borrowed from library too! Double bonus. Fun, light, good stuff. Kinsella is perfect for a fun quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill | 5/22/2011

    " Good fun. A perfect vacation read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cassie | 5/17/2011

    " Surprisingly poignant. It was slow to start but it had a middle that kept you intrigued and a lovely ending to boot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kristen | 5/17/2011

    " Normally I think books in this genre are appropriate only for beach reading where fluff is excusable, but in this case I thought the extra plot twists took it beyond chick-lit drivel into a funny, but light read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 5/15/2011

    " This is by far my favorite Sophie Kinsella book...Wonderful!!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynn | 5/15/2011

    " You have to read this book...makes me wonder sometimes what my grandparents were like when they were younger...you will fall in love with this womans grandmother! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dana | 5/14/2011

    " I enjoyed this way more than I expected too. Probably my favorite Sophie Kinsella book (and I have now read most of them :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 5/14/2011

    " I was kind of surprised by how much I enjoyed this because her shopaholic books are beginning to get on my nerves! it was very entertaining...good book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nancy | 5/14/2011

    " If only Ms. Kinsella could avoid the F word she would be perfect. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sally | 5/13/2011

    " To be honest I didn't get more than 3 or 4 chapters in. It was too much of a snooze-fest for me to plow through. I do like Ms. Kinsella's other non-Shopaholic titles but I just couldn't get into this one. "
