What I Loved: The silliness in this book was perfect. It was such a cute, light story that kept me reading long into the night.
How I Felt: I seriously just felt so happy reading this book! It had such a funny pairing between Lara and dear old Great-Aunt Sadie. Sophie Kinsella did an amazing job of playing the two characters off of one another. I laughed, a lot, reading this book. It really did make me feel light and happy!
To Read Or Not To Read: Did you know that Sophie Kinsella writes under a second name, Madeline Wickham? Sometimes authors do that to write in a different genre, but I truly feel that both writers have the same style. So, if you enjoy Sophie Kinsella (or Madeline Wickham), or easy, fun reads, this is perfect for you!
What’s This Book About Anyway?
Lara’s Great-Aunt Sadie has to come to visit her….except Great-Aunt Sadie has been dead a while, and now…she’s a ghost! Sadie is quite a feisty, stubborn lady and death did not change her. She tells Lara exactly what she should be doing with her life; eating, clothing, dancing, etc.
Sadie has one actual request though. She needs Lara to find a missing necklace that is very dear to her. If Lara can find it, Great-Aunt Sadie can Rest In Peace (and so can Lara!)
This book was hilarious and I loved every page, but it also had some nice tones about family and friendship and loyalty.
