Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella

   In the book Twenties Girl, Sophie Kinsella explores the story of a young woman, Lara a young contemporary 27-year-old London woman.  Lara has just been dumped by her boyfriend; she believes that Jason was the one.  To make matters worse she has to attend the funeral of her Great Aunt Sadie, someone she has never met.  The funeral is attended by her parents and her wealthy uncle, Lara wished that she was anywhere else but at the funeral.  During the ceremony Lara hears someone shouting “Where is my necklace?”   The voice is from Lara’s great-aunt Sadie, and Lara is haunted by the ghost of Sadie as experiences Sadie’s feisty lifestyle.  Sadie was a Charleston-dancing flapper, charmingly rebellious living in the 1920’s.  The story takes the reader on a journey to uncover the missing necklace’s whereabouts, and Lara learns about the Sadie’s life and true love.  During the journey to find the necklace Lara encounters new experiences, develops new strengths, and along the way becomes a much stronger person.
