Beautiful Days and The Lucky Ones by Anna Godbersen
This second novel is Godbersen’s Bright Young Things series will thrill fans of the first book. It again features small town girls Cordelia and Letty as they continue their adventures in New York City in the 1920’s. The excitement continues as Cordelia becomes the manager of the family’s new speakeasy and Letty begins to gain a following as a nightclub singer. While certainly not a literary story, I found these tasty novels to be the perfect vacation reading.
I recommend both the second and third books to young women looking for what our former student called “gossip girls back in the old days.” I devoured them both over holiday break this year. The final book in in the series is pictured below and is also available here at the Berkeley High Library.
