Reader Review: Sophie Kinsella is one of my favorite chick lit authors. Twenties Girl is a worthy addition to her body of work. I'm giving the book four stars rather than five because it takes quite some time to really draw you in. However, there are several shining moments, and Twenties Girl is definitely worth reading. It's not Kinsella's best, but it's still very good.
BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Sophie Kinsella's I've Got Your Number.
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 request: Lara must find a missing necklace that had been in Sadie’s possession for more than seventy-five years, because Sadie cannot rest without it.
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 and about each other. 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.

The thing about lying to your parents is, you have to do it to protect them. It's for their own good. I mean, take my own parents. If they knew the unvarnished truth about my finances/love life/ plumbing/council tax, they'd have instant heart attacks and the doctor would say, "Did anyone give them a terrible shock?" and it would all be my fault. Therefore, they have been in my flat for approximately ten minutes and already I have told them the following lies:
1. L&N Executive Recruitment will start making profits soon, I'm sure of it.
2. Natalie is a fantastic business partner, and it was a really brilliant idea to chuck in my job to become a headhunter with her.
3. Of course I don't just exist on pizza, black cherry yogurts, and vodka.
4. Yes, I did know about interest on parking tickets.
5. Yes, I did watch that Charles Dickens DVD they gave me for Christmas; it was great, especially that lady in the bonnet. Yes, Peggotty. That's who I meant.
6. I was actually intending to buy a smoke alarm at the weekend, what a coincidence they should mention it.
7. Yes, it'll be nice to see all the family again.
Seven lies. Not including all the ones about Mum's outfit. And we haven't even mentioned The Subject.
As I come out of my bedroom in a black dress and hastily applied mascara, I see Mum looking at my overdue phone bill on the mantelpiece.
"Don't worry," I say quickly. "I'm going to sort that out."
"Only, if you don't," says Mum, "they'll cut off your line, and it'll take ages for you to get it installed again, and the mobile signal is so patchy here. What if there was an emergency? What w...

If you are a Sophie Kinsella fan, think no more and get this. Yes, it is her basic plot of looking at the world through our girl's eyes (mid to late twenties), and even though she has her flaws, our girl is an absolute darling! I mean, she does make mistakes... is in denial about her break-up, and yes also ever so slightly quirky(withholding that she can actually see and speak to the ghost of her Great Aunt)... she is also spunky and knows what she wants to do. For instance, the business she started with her friend (who can't really be found when our girl needs her), and that she actually would do things that the ghost of her Great Aunt tells her to do... right? Well, I like Sophie Kinsella's light-hearted writing and yes I would read and re-read her books too! I just love it when our girl goes through all kinds of outrageous problems and manages to find (what we can presume to be) the love of her life!
Dreamy , Romantic and Out of the World

If You are a fan of Sophie Kinsella's style of writing, you will definitely love this one.
This is a story of a girl who is struggling in personal as well as professional life, while pretending that everything is fine.
She is pretending her business is great when her partner has actually left in a lurch. The love of her life has left her and she is moping.
Enter the ghost of her great grand aunt as a twenties girl to find something which she wants to make her transition and her life turns more interesting and finally she finds true love !
This story was a winner since the beginning. It was witty , funny and crazy but I just loved it. It is also about maintaining relationships and giving life the best shot.Actually I didn't want it to end. It was so sweet. A Lovely read !
