Just before I left for BEA, my mailbox was very happy! I received a copy of Finding Audrey by Sophie Kinsella – her first YA novel. I’m looking forward to carving out some time to read it. I’ve loved Kinsella’s books ever since she was writing under her real name, Madeline Wickham, and the love has continued throughout her Shopaholic series.
Here’s what Kinsella’s website has to say about Finding Audrey:
Audrey can’t leave the house. She can’t even take off her dark glasses inside the house.
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 …
I can’t wait to dive in! Have you read it yet? What do you think?
