About this deal

I could relate to Audrey’s social anxiety (being around people I don’t know, answering the door and phone, even leaving the house and feeling like everyone is staring at you. I live with anxiety and I can relate to pretty much everything that the main character goes through, Sophie really has it.

In Finding Audrey, Sophie Kinsella chose to take route b and for me personally this worked very well. Romance is already so toxic in a lot of media forms and the idea that a romantic interest (in this case, like most cases, a man) can fix something as ingrained as anxiety is a terrifying and damaging idea to be perpetuating to young girls.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. The creative writing format is also a huge contributor to the overall bright and positive impact of the novel.

but I thought it was a bit strange that one minute Audrey was having such bad anxiety that she couldn't look him in the eye or even face him and the next minute they're making out? My dark glasses are on, my hands are jammed in the pockets of my hoodie, and I’ve pulled the hood up for extra protection. Ollie sometimes plays Land of Conquerors online with Frank if Frank’s in a kind mood and doesn’t have anyone else to play with. PLUS, you could easily introduce a romance into this scenario, especially since it could be done very similar to how Linus and Audrey's romance began in the book. If you like Sophie Kinsella's previous work, and if you like YA genre, you will (probably) definitely like this book.It wasn't enjoyable and felt gimmicky, making a large portion of the story to be very hard to get through. So, yeah, I was expecting this book to be good rep and hopefully give me some sort of comfort and a story to look to for hope when my anxiety got the best of me. And I’m not even talking about the romance because although there may be a little romance, it’s not really romance-romance.
