A new student review of The Lucky Ones: A Bright Young Things Novel by Anna Godbersen

123evae123 posted a new student review of The Lucky Ones: A Bright Young Things Novel by Anna Godbersen. See the full review.

This book was so good. With a great undercurrent of danger and suspense and romance this book was a perfect historical fiction novel in my opinion. Using two small town girls from Ohio as some of the main characters was such a glorious way to write this fairytale of a story. These girls traveled to New York, and gained fame and fortune, but not without hardships and downfalls. The author uses the glitz and glamour of New York in the 1920's to create a story full of intrigue and mystery. These girls are a romantisized version of a fantasy that has been written time and time again, with something that sets them apart from the rest of the books about the 20's. The way that you were drawn into their lives and their stories made me never want to put this book down, I wanted it to never end, and that's why I think it deserves a five star rating, because even though I was disappointed it ended, I could not have been happier with the way it ended, or the way it began, or everything in between.
