From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Shopaholic series comes a terrific blend of comedy, romance, and psychological recovery in a contemporary YA novel sure to inspire and entertain.
An anxiety disorder disrupts fourteen-year-old Audrey’s daily life. She has been making slow but steady progress with Dr. Sarah, but when Audrey meets Linus, her brother’s gaming teammate, she is energized. She connects with him. Audrey can talk through her fears with Linus in a way she’s never been able to do with anyone before. As their friendship deepens and her recovery gains momentum, a sweet romantic connection develops, one that helps not just Audrey but also her entire family.

A fiercely honest and humorous look at life. Real life. 

I have to say that I really enjoyed Audrey and her incredibly normal life. How, you might ask, am I calling a girl with a severe social anxiety, a helicopter mother, a brother with (or perhaps with out) a video game addiction and a father who is just kind of there, "normal life". Well I ask you to go back over that list and tell me - how normal it is in this day and age for all those things to exist. 

This take on life, health, parenting, first loves, bullying was fresh and interesting. I didn't bore 25 pages in because I knew what was coming next, and Kinsella doesn't sugar coat any of it. Not the somewhat crazy mom, or the clueless dad, not even the medication and therapy. It's honest It's real. It's exactly what I needed in a contemporary novel. 

Kinsella's ability to stitch together a story of truth isn't her only talent, but weaving in at an expert level, humor as well. This is a shining star of a novel, it need to be on your TBR list as soon as possible!
