One word review: eh.

the 1920's seem to be having a moment in (ya especially) fiction at the moment & as with all trends it means that a lot of average books slip through the cracks. Maggie (more or less the main character) is the best part of the book but it's so rushed and tbh, reads almost like a Downton Abbey fanfic.

Katie Are there any 1920's books you'd recommend? I think I've been kind of scared off because the ones I keep seeing are the Anna Godbersen ones and I really didn't like her Luxe ones and everything kind of sounds like it could be like those! But I'd be all for reading 1920's stuff that I'd . . . actually like.

Cait The Bright Young Things series are actually quite good - better than the Luxe ones' IMO. There's also Jillian Larkin's flapper books.
The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty was good too - that's adult fiction, not YA.

There are a bunch coming out in the next year too, apparently.

Katie Ooh, thanks! The Chaperone looks interesting.
