Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella
I was slightly disappointed by Sophie Kinsella's last book so I was hesitant to read Twenties Girl but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a fun story that provokes some deep thoughts.
The story centers on Lara, a woman who is struggling in many areas of her life. Her perfect boyfriend isn't so perfect, her business partner has abandoned her, and work isn't exactly pouring in. To top it off, she has to go to her great Aunt Sadie's funeral, where Great Aunt Sadie's ghost happens to show up -with Lara the only one that can see her. Sadie asks Lara to help find a necklace - and stop the funeral until she does.
Sadie wants to have fun in her afterlife. She wants to dance, flirt, and be playful. Lara has a life to lead and work to do. The odd pair finally work out a system to benefit them both, all while Lara searches for the missing necklace.
Twenties Girl is a book that will put a smile on your face while making you think about your own family and who and what is important to you. Enjoy!
