From Publishers Weekly

Apr 13, 2015 – In her first book for teens, Kinsella (the Shopaholic series) offers pathos and humor in equal measure. The story has two cinematic threads: the candid narration of 14-year-old Audrey, who is coping with depression and anxiety disorders, and the transcript of a documentary she is recording at her therapist's suggestion. Since being hospitalized after an unspecified incident at school, Audrey refuses to leave the house or interact with anyone outside her family, wearing dark glasses to avoid eye contact. The title of her documentary, "My Serene and Loving Family," is only half ironic: her parents are loving and supportive, but her mother's unpredictability sometimes overshadows her good intentions and shatters any semblance of serenity in the household. Mum is determined to cure Audrey's brother's "addiction" to online gaming and their bickering builds to hilarious mutual exasperation. Yet at its heart, this is Audrey's story of healing and reemergence, facilitated by her friendship and first love with an insightful, patient boy. Kinsella's knack for humor and sensitivity shine in a story that should easily expand her already substantial fan base. Ages 12 up.

Customer Reviews

Finding Audrey

I enjoyed this book. It dealt with a teenager who suffered with anxiety issues. It also discussed her feelings and her interaction with her psychologist.
It was a sweet and yet funny picture into the life of a family with different issues to deal with.

Finding Audrey

I enjoyed this book the same fun way I enjoyed all of her books. I think this would be good reading for all ages. But did I miss something? What actually happened to Audrey to cause her to withdraw in the first place? What did those mean girls do to her? Maybe it does not really matter since the outcome is what matters in the end. But still I am curious. I think this would make a good film.

Sweet and entertaining

Audrey is one of the most likable characters ever portrayed, you really root for her, and it makes you think about life and healing.
