West End Girls- Jenny Colgan

Synopsis (from Amazon)

The streets of London are paved with gold …allegedly. They may be twin sisters, but Lizzie and Penny Berry are complete opposites – Penny is blonde, thin and outrageous; Lizzie quiet, thoughtful and, well, definitely not thin. The one trait they do share is a desire to DO something with their lives, and as far as they’re concerned, the place to get noticed is London. Out of the blue they discover they have a grandmother living in Chelsea – and when she has to go into hospital, they find themselves flat-sitting on the King’s Road. But, as they discover, it’s not as easy to become It Girls as they’d imagined, and west end boys aren’t at all like Hugh Grant …


Not much to say about this one, just pretty standard chick-lit fare. Predictable from early on, but strangely satisfying. I read chick-lit to be lazy, and this certainly filled the bill. No great story, no great writting, but an easy comfortable read.

  1. The storyline sounded so good, disappointing to hear it was predictable. I still might look for it though.

    It was predictable in the way all chick-lit is basically the same, it was probably better than some chick-lit because it was a bit more than girl gets boy. It’s quite a good choice for an easy read.
