Finding Audrey is about a girl named Audrey Turner who has suffered serious bullying at school and, while staying off school for some time, is too afraid to go out into the world again. Then, her older brother Frank’s Land of Conquerors teammate Linus comes over. Love at first sight, they say…
Goodreads synopsis: 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.
Finding Audrey was utterly amazing. It was just so good. It’s my favourite book now. I’ll keep rereading the copy I have until it’s battered and stained with spilt tea.
Finding Audrey is by Sophie Kinsella. I give Finding Audrey 4.5 out of 5 stars. For me, it was totally relatable and made me speechless in a good way and I felt like this book and I were meant to be. (Awkward, right?)
There isn’t a Finding Audrey film, but I sincerely hope that in the near future it does come out. I know it’s pretty much impossible, and even if one does come out it won’t be as good as the book, obviously, but I so desperately need more of Audrey and Linus!
I know that I have to list the cons too… Even if there isn’t many. First of all, the language was slightly unsophisticated. But that made the whole thing just more friendly and amazing! Secondly, the book was about social problems. Hang on, that’s not a con. I meant it portrayed social problems well. I appreciated that Sophie Kinsella put a serious topic as mental illness into light-hearted yet respectful words. That’s a pro, but un-difficult vocabulary is the only con I can think of. So this book is perfect (almost).
And that’s why I have made a Finding Audrey wordle. I couldn’t help myself.
