Anna Godbersen - Bright Young Things Review:
Anna Godbersen, author of the bestselling Luxe series, turns her attention to the glittering world of the Roaring 20's in her newest release, Bright Young Things, the first volume in a new series.
Letty, a talented singer, dreams of being discovered and having her name in lights, while Cordelia wants to find the father she has never met, an infamous but charismatic gangster and bootlegger.Cordelia and Letty go their separate ways soon after arriving in New York, but don't worry--twists and turns in the plot that I will not divulge here will bring them together again before the end of the book.
Meanwhile Letty gets a job as a cigarette girl, struggling to break into show business.Alas, her small town innocence makes life even more difficult in the big city, and she must leave her naivete behind her to succeed.
In a Romeo and Juliet-like twist, Cordelia meets Thom, an incredibly attractive young man--the son of her father's mortal enemy, and soon she is enmeshed in a forbidden romance.Godbersen's next volume in the series comes out in 2011, and she leaves us hanging as all three of our young women pursue dangerous paths to their ultimate destiny (which we won't know until the series concludes!)
She fills her book with juicy descriptions of this colorful Roaring Twenties period, from luxurious Long Island estates covered with "impossibly green lawns" to seedy boarding houses, to smoky speakeasies filled with flappers.The book is further complemented by photo essays on each of the main characters on the lively website for her books.Godbersen's many fans are sure to enjoy this newest series, and it's a good purchase for YA collections at libraries and schools.Only: 4.05 $ *
