Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella

"Who doesn't like a good ghost story, even a light-hearted one?," I asked myself as I picked this up on the book exchange shelf. Well, I guess I don't, because this missed the mark entirely with me. Screaming ghosts are fine in Harry Potter, but a shrieking one didn't cut it with me. I had no like for either of the two main characters, and found myself dreading picking up the book to read. Got to page 177 and called it quits on screaming Sadie, her lost necklace, and Lara, her grand-niece. The best thing I can say about the book? The previous reader apparently used a book of first class stamps as a bookmark, and left it in the book when she abandoned it, approximately the same place I did.

Can't rate, as I didn't finish.
