Twenties Girl: A Novel

Twenties Girl - Sophie Kinsella When I first started Twenties Girl, I thought oh no, Sophie Kinsella has lost her touch. I also thought this was an attempt to cash in on the paranormal romance craze. I shouldn't have been worried though. After reading 100 pages, she was right on track with a great paranormal Chick Lit story where her main character, Lara finds the true meaning of life with her great aunt, Sadie, helping in a ghostly form. I don't think anyone else can write Chick Lit like Kinsella, although, I really enjoy her books written under her real name, Madeleine Wickham much better since they are a little darker in tone than the Shopaholic series. I really did enjoy this one and found myself staying up late to finish it. I was also a little sad that it was over and didn't leave room for a sequel.
