FINDING AUDREY, by Sophie Kinsella


The story: After a horrible run-in with bullying schoolmates, Audrey has developed an anxiety disorder that keeps her in the house, wearing dark glasses all the time so she won’t have to meet anyone’s eyes. Everyone in her family is worried about Audrey, but they’re all slightly crazy too. It’s only when Audrey meets Linus (a member of her brother’s online gaming team) that she can begin to move past her roadblocks and even consider getting back out the door. But will a confrontation with one of the bullies present a setback she’s unlikely to get past?

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: I liked this story a lot, and it gives a good look at what it’s like to be a teen with an anxiety disorder.  Bad language alert, though–if the “F” word bothers you, skip this one!
