1. What are you currently reading? Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella. Lara Litton is struggling -- romantically, professionally and financially. She's fragile and vulnerable, so when she begins seeing an apparition, it's easy to dismiss it as stress.
Only Sadie won't be dismissed. Lara's recently-deceased great aunt is now a fixture in Lara's life. Sadie appears to Lara (and only to Lara) as she was when she was happiest -- during her 1920's flapper/party girl days. She turns Lara's life upside down and leads her on zany adventures. (Yes, "zany" is the right word. If you've read any of Sophie Kinsella's Shopaholic books, you know she specializes in "zany.")
I enjoyed The Ghost and Mrs. Muir so much (see below) that, when I stumbled upon this book, I snapped it up. But it suffers from the comparison. This is funny and fast-moving, but it lacks the character development and emotional depth of R. A. Dick's much shorter book. Maybe the fault is with me. Perhaps it's unfair to compare modern chick-lit to a 75-year-old classic.
