Sophie Kinsella used to be such a guilty pleasure author for me. I havent read one of her books in years but I always enjoyed reading about the hilarious, ridiculous and unfortunate situations her shopaholic protagonist found herself in.Finding Audrey, though, could be Kinsellas strongest work to date. Its 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 its 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 Audreys family make this book very funny (and sometimes touching too).Audreys mother is a neurotic Daily Mail fan who constantly tries to improve her familys lifestyle after reading articles like The Eight Signs Your Child is Addicted to Computer Games. Shes comical, infuriating, but still lovable. Audreys Dad reluctantly tries to enforce the rules his wife establishes, but he really just wants to keep the peace and watch Downton Abbey. Audreys 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 theres Audrey.Audrey is suffering from a severe anxiety disorder. She can hardly bear to leave the house and gets upset whenever Franks gamer friends come around. However, she does begin to establish a way of communicating through paper notes with one of Franks friends - Linus. Who, by the way, is so freaking adorable.One 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 doesnt 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 novels close, Audrey has not been miraculously cured.I liked that. I liked that the book was a good balance of light-hearted silly humour and hard realism. It was really effective.Very enjoyable and touching book.Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Tumblr
