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.
When I found out that Sophie Kinsella has ventured in the YA genre along with a throng of other authors out there, I said to myself, will this work for her? I mean, I’ve read every one of her books and they are a far cry from what she will be offering to all her readers and that includes me. A Young Adult novel? Really? It’s not that I doubt her writing abilities but is this for real? Anyways, who am I to contradict this right? It’s not, like, my opinion matter. Haha.
I was a bit apprehensive to read this book and decided that I should at least wait for the copy to be on sale and not waste money if it’s not good or something. I love her stand-alone novels and the Shopaholic Series is good as well. So I figured, I’ll give this one a shot and just jump into it. Let’s go to my review. Here it goes…
The majority of this book centers around a teenage girl named Audrey. She’s sick, I think. She doesn’t go out much and she keeps to herself. Even her family doesn’t see her that often. I think there’s this important episode that happened at her school that made her stay away from her friends, her family and generally from people. Like, she stays away from all of them. What the fuck right? What happened? Beats me. She’s annoying sometimes actually. Haha. I’m so proud of myself that I did finish this even though I wanted to stop half way through the book. Maybe because the story doesn’t have that appeal that really gets me going. Anyways, it is still a good read so I guess I’m still recommending this to you. :-)
