Fourteen-year-old, Audrey, is dealing with diagnosed anxiety disorder brought on by an undisclosed event.
Sophie Kinsella always makes me giggle a time or two (often more) in her books, no matter the topic. Even though this was a more serious topic of teenage anxiety, she still managed to tickle me. Her version of a young adult (14) was depicted very well. I appreciated that Audrey didn't act like a child with incredibly immature behaviors left and right (some were anticipated, though, she is 14). I didn't feel like this was a serious attempt to cure anxiety or anything like that. It was a glimpse into one girl's life as she works through her problems.
