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.
Things I liked about this book:
• There is NO boring part in the entire book. Every scene is funny, captivating or realistic.
• The characters are amazing. They are real and relatable. Audrey’s mom is like every Mom in this entire planet, I have a cousin brother who is very much like Frank (Audrey’s brother) !
• Linus is really nice and understanding, but I like that the romance part does not overshadow the other issues in the book. Audrey isn’t “found” because of Linus, her character development is mostly her own credit (and her psychologist’s, that’s one cool lady).
• I tried really hard to go slow with this book because it’s so tiny, but I just couldn’t make myself stop reading!
• Finding Audrey cured my mini reading slump.
Things I did not like about the book:
• Was it very necessary for Audrey’s Dad to have zero backbone? It’s kind of irritating.
• The story behind Audrey’s condition is still kind of hazy. I mean there are enough hints, but exactly what happened?
I’d suggest if you are thinking of reading thid book, you should definitely buy a copy and go ahead, read it. It has romance, family bonding, health issues, social issues. And plus, its extremely well-written. I think this is a kind of book everyone will enjoy, irrespective of what genre you prefer usually.
