Book #66 Read in 2015
Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella (YA)
I have read and enjoyed several of this author's adult books so I figured I would try this YA book by her. First, let me say that the mother in this book drove me nuts. She was so clueless about her kids and was a wreck when it came to parenting. Aside from that, I really enjoyed this book which looks like a fluff read but deals with some heavy issues such as bullying, mental illness and family dynamics. Amidst the heavy is humor and interesting characters. Audrey is trying to get control over her life after going through a traumatic time at her high school. Her struggle is real and honestly portrayed in the book. Her journey has its ups and downs, all of which makes for an interesting read. I thought this book was well done. I received a copy of this book from the Amazon Vine program in exchange for a honest review.
