Then her brother's friend Linus stumbles into her life. With his friendly, orange-slice smile and his funny notes, he starts to entice Audrey out again - well, Starbucks is a start.And with Linus at her side, Audrey feels like she can do the things she'd thought were too scary. Suddenly, finding her way back to the real world seems achievable.
Be prepared to laugh, dream and hope with Audrey as she learns that even when you feel like you have lost yourself, love can still find you . . .
For those of you who can’t watch the video:
Sophie Kinsella is back with a new novel, this time IT YA!
The story is about Audrey who suffers from Social Anxiety Disorder. Audrey is convalescing at home after a particularly bad episode brought on by some bullying at school when Linus enters her life and helps to drag her out of her cage.
At least, that’s what the blurb would have you think. But the truth is it’s Audrey, her doctor and a bit of prodding from Linus that really sees Audrey on the path to recovery – and for someone who keeps dark glasses on and can’t stand to speak to anyone outside her family, that path is very, very steep.
Where this book really shines is Audrey’s family and their day-to-day interactions. Believe me when I say they are hysterically funny and add a much needed character and charm to the story.
It’s heartwarming, sweet and very readable with good writing and a solidly paced story.
Get into it, people!
