Finding Audrey

Audrey is a teenager dealing with a serious anxiety disorder. She finds it difficult to socialize and even leave home—until she meets Linus. Finding Audrey is a young adult novel that tackles issues of depression, self-esteem, and young romance.

I read Finding Audrey because I am a fan of Sophie Kinsella’s Shopaholic series, which I find both entertaining and exasperating. Audrey was an easy read, but it was not as lightweight or humorous as Shopaholic. That said, although Audrey addresses serious issues (and contains strong language), the characters still seem to be unrealistically happy and stable, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing for a young adult novel.
