Teen Book Review — Beautiful Days

Title: Beautiful Days
Author: Anna Godbersen
Stars (out of 5): 5
Review: (Spoiler alert! This is the second book in the series.) [set in 1929] Everything should have separated Astrid Donal, Cordelia Grey and Letty Larkspur. But after living together for a month in New York, the girls are freat friends. Astrid is engaged to Charlie, Cordelia’s brother. Letty is trying to make her dream a reality: dancing and singing on Broadway. Cordelia is trying to make sense of her father’s death and the part she played in it. She wants revenge — so she gets to work with her brother Charlie and his gang. But the Hales, the Grey family’s arch-enemies, will stop at nothing to preserve their reputation… I loved this book as it feels fictitious (car-chases at night, spying on the enemy by plane) and yet so ground in reality (the historic details are specific and well-researched). I can’t wait to read the third book in the trilogy!
