Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella, published by Bantam Press for £5.84

What is the book about?

The plot follows Lara, a young woman living a seemingly normal life. She is a little lost, though, until she is visited by her great aunt Sadie from the 1920s and everything takes an, almost, unbelievable turn. While on the hunt for Sadie’s prized necklace the two form a bond that makes a magical, but very real impact on Lara’s life and perspective.

Who is it aimed at?

Based on the general content and themes of this particular book it’s definitely not targeted to the slightly older Young Adult audience. I would enthusiastically recommend it to anyone from upwards of 14, though.

What was your favourite part?

I found myself to be extremely excited

at the chance to read a Sophie Kinsella book due to the endlessly funny nature of her writing and how easy her novels are to pick up and read. I always

find myself laughing out loud and Twenties Girl was most certainly no exception.

What was your least favourite part?

As with many books that are easy to enjoy, sometimes the plot isn’t quite as entertaining as the writing style itself and I occasionally found this to be the case. I found it easy to pick up but sometimes a little too easy to put down as well.

Which character would you most like to meet?

Out of the two main characters I experienced the most interest in Sadie, who acts both as a catalyst and a strong character in the book. I was fascinated by her outlook and purpose.

Why should someone buy this book?

If you or a friend or family member is looking for a funny, light read to come back to over and over, I cannot recommend Twenties Girl, or any of Sophie Kinsella’s works, highly enough. It makes the perfect holiday read, or even just a treat for anyone who

needs it.
