Bright Young Things by Anna Godbersen
This new series by Historical author Anna Godbersen is a must read for any fans of The Luxe, or someone that wants to travel back in time to immerse themself in the last summer of the Roaring Twenties.
When best friends Cordelia Grey and Letty Larkspur leave their small town of Union, Ohio to find their fame, fortune and lost relatives in New York, they get more than they bargained for.
Cordelia finds herself reunited with her long-lost father, Darius Grey, an affluent bootlegger who Cordelia has always wanted to know. Letty is just trying to make it all the way to the fame and fortune of being a star.
But things don't come with a price, Letty and Cordelia will learn that. The easy way, OR the hard way.
Bright Young things was sent to me, and as soon as I opened the package I started reading. Then enticing cover and the luring plot don't compare to what is held inside. Drama, Romance, Danger, Forbidden Love and gripping plot lines fill the pages of this dynamic novel.
Be transported back in time to the last summer of the Jazz age and lose yourself in the stories that Godbersen has weaved with expert skills.
Bright Young Things captures the desire for glamour inside and shows you the life that everybody dreams of, and the truth behind it.
Plus: It's set in the 20's!!
I recommend this book for girls aged 12 - 16.
