Sophie Kinsella used to be such a guilty pleasure author for me I haven't read one of her books in years but I always enjoyed reading about the hilarious ridiculous and unfortunate situations her shopaholic protagonist found herself inFinding Audrey though could be Kinsella's strongest work to date It's funny sweet heartwarming but also I felt an honest look at a teenage girl living with social anxiety “They talk about “body language” as if we all speak it the same But everyone has their own dialect For me right now for example swiveling my body right away and staring rigidly at the corner means “I like you” Because I didn’t run away and shut myself in the bathroom I just hope he realizes that” One of my favourite things about this book is that it's about one of those families loud crazy often torn apart by arguments but ultimately very close and loving towards one another The dynamics Kinsella creates between the members of Audrey's family make this book very funny and sometimes touching tooAudrey's mother is a neurotic Daily Mail fan who constantly tries to improve her family's lifestyle after reading articles like The Eight Signs Your Child is Addicted to Computer Games She's comical infuriating but still lovable Audrey's Dad reluctantly tries to enforce the rules his wife establishes but he really just wants to keep the peace and watch Downton Abbey Audrey's older brother Frank is obsessed with a game called LOC similar to World of Warcraft and this causes many hilarious arguments with his mum And then there's AudreyAudrey is suffering from a severe anxiety disorder She can hardly bear to leave the house and gets upset whenever Frank's gamer friends come around However she does begin to establish a way of communicating through paper notes with one of Frank's friends Linus Who by the way is so freaking adorableOne of my main concerns when I started this book was that it would turn into another love cures mental illness tale I hate that damaging and untrue message But though Linus offers support and friendship to Audrey the author doesn't allow that message to seep through Kinsella shows recovery from mental illness as a long process of two steps forward and one step back Even at the novel's close Audrey has not been miraculously curedI liked that I liked that the book was a good balance of light hearted silly humour and hard realism It was really effectiveVery enjoyable and touching bookBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube | Store

Udrey can't leave the house she can't even take off her dark glasses inside the houseThen her brother's friend Linus stumbles into her life With his friendly orange slice smile and his funny notes he starts to entice Audrey out again well Starbucks is a start And with Linus at. I did enjoy my time with this book but I feel I did not enjoy it as much as my peers I have had Finding Audrey on my radar for an immensely long time due to it being one of the only YA books I've found to deal with social anxiety specifically and while I was pleased with the mental health rep I found the majority of the rest of the book to be lackingThe glowing element of this story is absolutely the representation for social anxiety Audrey is diagnosed with Social Anxiety Disorder and clinical depression As someone who has dealt with anxiety and depression for most of my life I can happily say this book contains an accurate depiction I love how true of a portrayal this novel is Social anxiety is not only being afraid to talk on phones not feeling comfortable in crowds or having trouble making new friends It affects all of your interpersonal relationships and makes daily tasks like making eye contact eating in front of others or leaving the house almost impossible As a note I've seen a few reviews suggesting Audrey also deals with agoraphobia because she does not leave her home often As we are given Audrey's official diagnosis in the beginning on the novel and the fact that the fear of leaving her home is not due to a fear of not having an escape in case of disaster but rather her fear of social interaction judgement from others I would not consider this book to have representation for agoraphobia though many who do live with this illness may find some comfort in Audrey's story regardless I liked the focus on that an event may have triggered Audrey's anxiety but it is primarily a chemical imbalance that she has always lived with it's not only tied to an incident at school Though this book perfectly displays what it is like to have social anxiety and depression Audrey is still than just her illnesses and I feel this book properly showcases the struggle that million of people go through I also loved that Audrey's treatment was a central theme of the story and although I'm always unhappy to see YA books demonize the use of medication to treat mental illness this novel left a strong enough positive message that I can accept it I've seen a lot of reviews suggest that Audrey recovers too uickly which I personally disagree with I feel this book follows her struggle her efforts to take control of her anxiety and work past her issues and ultimate progress Audrey is in no way cured by the end of this novel she is still struggling despite her improvements and I believe those improvements would be inspiring to make teens in similar situations If you're looking for a book that deals with social anxiety I can't recommend Finding Audrey enoughI liked the romance I don't feel it is anything special but I was happy to see a supportive love interest that helps the main character in their recovery yet isn't attributed to as the sole reason they begin to get better Linus was probably my second favorite character for that reason I also liked Audrey's brother Frank but I don't feel he had a huge contribution to the story I struggled very hard with Audrey's mother; She is the type of helicopter parent that believes they are doing what is best for their child while simultaneously harming them and while this is absolutely a real parental role that many teens have to live with she made the majority of the book extremely unbearable I don't feel we had enough development on Audrey's father for me to have strong feelings and apart from being the cute younger brother who acts as comic relief Felix also isn't a memorable character for meOn the other hand I didn't love many other aspects of this book The plot was really lacking other than it being the story of Audrey dealing with her illnesses not much happens in this book I found it very boring at times with a weak driving force If you are looking for a book with a well developed plot I don't believe this is the book for you I also felt there was too large of a focus on being addicted to video games At times it felt as if their mother's obsession with Frank's video game usage overtook the focus on Audrey's story It wasn't enjoyable and felt gimmicky making a large portion of the story to be very hard to get throughAdditionally the incident that mostly triggered Audrey's illnesses was never really addressed We can assume it has something to do with her past classmates and bullying It is built up to be this huge issue that the school failed to take control of yet we are never exposed to what it actually is I understand some authors choose to not include information like this as the actual event doesn't matter but it made the book extremely anti climatic and left me very unsatisfied It felt lazy and unfinished I think an actual anecdote about what happened would have strengthened the storyOverall I'm very pleased I read this book because of the mental health rep but I can't find any other notable elements of praise If you're looking for books with social anxiety I think it's worth giving a shot If you're not I'm sure you'd find enjoyment in a different read

Sophie Kinsella did it again Earlier this week I read and disliked ELIZA AND HER MONSTERS I thought it was because the main character was lethargic which was mostly due to her social anxiety but so is Audrey She’s an observer also—very calm stays inside interacts little—and I loved the hell out of her voice Something bad happened to Audrey at her last school so now she wanders around the house aimlessly Her doctor tells her to make a video documenting her life family recovery which helps her interact with others and herself Another new key element in her life is her brother’s new friend to whom she took a liking I loved the humour I was so scared it would be similar to WHERE DID YOU GO BERNADETTE which is a tragicomedy also with an isolated protagonist who disappears But unlike the title suggests this isn’t a book about the literal definition of finding Audrey More like the metaphorical one The characters are very interesting It revolves around Audrey’s family and Audrey herself All family members are fully fleshed out from overly eager little Felix to obsessive stay at home Mom In ELIZA AND HER MONSTERS Eliza preferred to stay away from her family She thought of them as an annoyance I found that extremely irking Audrey may not necessarily approve of everything her family does—she definitely disfavours the drama—but her affection toward them is obvious to the reader nonetheless A very addictive novel with entertaining characters and sweet romance Job well done Blog | Youtube | Twitter | Instagram | Google | Bloglovin’
