From bestselling author Anna Godbersen comes the Bright Young Things series set in the last breathless days of Gatsby’s Roaring Twenties.

The year is 1929, and New York is ruled by the Bright Young Things: flappers and socialites chasing their dreams. Letty Larkspur and Cordelia Grey have escaped their small Midwestern town for the glittering city. Letty wants to see her name in lights, and Cordelia is searching for the father she’s never known. But overnight, they enter a world more thrilling, glamorous and dangerous than they ever could have imagined. It’s a life anyone would kill for . . . and someone will in this thrilling, romantic, page-turner.

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): swell
Three gals represent different aspects of independent flappers in the 1920s. With this first book you get to watch the transformation and transition of two girls from small town to the big city of New York.

While exciting at times, the girls experience the not-so-pretty effects of prohibition and power of the times.
