If ever there was a book that made me appreciate a bygone era it would be Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella. Lara starts seeing her late and hearing her late Aunt Sadie, who pretty much ruins her life to try to get back a necklace and she refuses to rest until she finds it again. She also has strong view on fashion and principles and doesn’t understand why ‘everyone is walking around with blue legs’, she makes Lara wear various flapper girl outfits and follow many 1920s pursuits. At first she hates both Sadie and the activities but as the book goes on she soon falls in love with both.
As a lover of black and white films and older times this story really entertained me, also is was fairly clear that Sophie Kinsella had done her research, and the book also has a bittersweet ending that made me cry my eyes out.
If you want to get into Sophie Kinsella miss out the tiresome shopaholic series and read her other stand alone books such as this or Remember Me?
