Nominated for the Goodreads Choice Award for Young Adult Fiction
"Blending the humour, heartbreak and romance underlying the everyday pains of adolescence, the book's teenaged heroine also faces severe social anxiety-until love turns her life around. . . . Sophie's signature wit and sharp storytelling skills lend a sense of ease and empathy relatable to all ages."
"Kinsella, a prolific British author best known for her Shopaholic series of novels, has a light, comedic touch and does a remarkable job of character development [in Finding Audrey]. . . . Subject matter notwithstanding, humour is the dominant mood in this book. Audrey is a sharp judge of character, and does an outstanding job of detailing the family's foibles." -Montreal Gazette
"Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella is the heartwarming tale of Audrey Turner, a fourteen year old whose life has been turned upside-down by the onset of various anxiety disorders. . . . Kinsella's first person narrative is open and warm. . . . a very enjoyable, uplifting read, with the perfect combination of friendship, anguish, romance and humour."
