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.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary Jane | 2/19/2014

    " I generally am not into ghosts and spirits so I had a hard time with this book. I was surprised that Sophie Kinsella delved into this phenomena. It was an ok story. I continued reading until the end mainly to see how she dealt with the subject. I still am not into ghosts. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nina | 2/7/2014

    " I wasn't really impressed with this book. The ghost was annoying and immature... I guess when you're a 23 yr old ghost you probably will be immature. When it came to Ed, I couldn't connect with his character. It took a while for him to show up in the book and even then, with the whole "love" triangle, I couldn't see his appeal besides his looks and status. I ended skimming quite a few parts, the book just seemed soooo long. Anyways, it was an "Ok" read I guess. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah Grun | 1/26/2014

    " imaginative. funny. warm. leaves you feeling good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brenna | 1/17/2014

    " I wasn't sure what I would think of this book... the premise was a little out of my usual reading genre. However, I was pleasantly surprised! The main character is likable and quirky. The ghost who "haunts" her is also a likable character. The only part of the book I found annoying was the main character's infatuation with her ex-boyfriend. Once you get past that, however, it played into a cute story with ho-hum progress that was a pleasure to read. It is a light read that ties up nicely in the end. I love stores that tie up nicely in the end and doesn't leave you wondering what happens next. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lynda | 1/10/2014

    " oooh I loved this book......loved the whole idea of her getting to know her Aunt -we all forget old people were young once and made me want to look back at pictures of my Grandparents etc.Fab fab fab-thoroughly recommend it!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lia Marcoux | 12/23/2013

    " This is not a good book. The main characters are not particularly likeable. But I bought it used in a Brussels secondhand bookshop, and it got me through a train ride, Tube ride, and part of the bus home, so thanks, Sophie Kinsella! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Themi | 12/5/2013

    " Probably my least favorite of hers. A bit too fanciful for my liking! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aiza Marasigan | 12/1/2013

    " i like the mystery in this story. Nice. I love the characters! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leanne | 11/21/2013

    " The premise is cheesy but yes I got sucked in. It is a relationship between a 20 something women and the ghost of her great aunt. I have read another book by this author and I really like the way she writes. Although, she likes to use the F word a lot. With that said, I liked it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Toren | 3/7/2012

    " Maybe it was just the book on tape and the obnoxious actress, but I just could not listen to this book any longer and never finished it. Just too silly, which is saying a lot coming from me because I read all sorts of silly and unrealistic books! "
