It was possible, but doubtful, that Cordelia fully absorbed the lesson of this moment - that when girls use the brightness of their eyes or the softness of their skin, they have an uncommon advantage in getting what they want. (p. 57 e-book)I am a big fan of The Luxe series, just like I am a fan of the Gossip Girl books. Sometimes there is nothing better than a fun, light read. So I was delighted to learn that Anna Godbersen was going to do a series in the 1920's, one of my favorite eras. It was a great setting and I enjoyed this book. It wasn't a retread of The Luxe, something I was afraid would happen and the characters were distinct and different. I liked Cordelia the best since she was much stronger and more able. I thought Letty was a bit too helpless though rightfully so. It ended on a good cliffhanger so now I am wondering what is going to happen next.
