An anxiety disorder disrupts fourteen-year-old Audrey’s daily life. She has been making slow but steady progress with Dr. Sarah, but when Audrey meets Linus, her brother’s gaming teammate, she is energized. She connects with him. Audrey can talk through her fears with Linus in a way she’s never been able to do with anyone before. As their friendship deepens and her recovery gains momentum, a sweet romantic connection develops, one that helps not just Audrey but also her entire family.
There's a reason Sophie Kinsella is one of my favorite Chick-lit authors of all time and it's because every single one of her books that I've read has been undeniably cute and so nice and refreshing to read. Her writing and quirky characters never fail to draw me in and seize my attention for the whole duration of the novel – which is both annoying and wonderful. Given that Finding Audrey is Kinsella's first attempt at YA, I was a little anxious going into it, but literally seconds after I opened the book my doubts vanished and I delved into the darkly comical, uplifting and entertaining world of Finding Audrey.
