Twenties Girl

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. (I copied the synopsis from goodreads.com)


I went shopping with my family at Midvalley/Gardens. And dropped by at the Borders. Actually I was looking for the Mockingjay pin. One of the hunger games stuff. But, it sold out already :'( Then, I checked out some novels at the English section. Actually, I wanted to buy I've Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella, but I couldn't find it. Maybe it was out of stock. Finally, I decided to buy this cool book from Sophie Kinsella, TWENTIES GIRL.

So, this book is one of my favourite. I must say, she’s SUCH a brilliant author! Her books are always humorous, and never fail to make me laugh, all whilst sitting at the edge of my seat. 
At first, when I heard Twenties Girl was a Ghost story, I’m like O_O mmmm... But honestly, bloody hilarious! It was one of those books that you just can’t read in public because passers-by stare at you oddly while you’re laughing like a fool :P  

It was just so bittersweet. the story is just soo touching. If you will read it (until the last) I promise, you shall surely cry, ask everyone who have finished reading the book :))) . Especially the part when Sadie already left to Heaven :')

Everybody go read that book, it’s so good!
