Audrey’s family was so lovable and realistic, kind of crazy at times but that made them even more relatable. The plot was really lacking - other than it being the story of Audrey dealing with her illnesses, not much happens in this book. Let's be realistic: being in a romantic relationship with a mentally ill person is a lot of work, especially since Audrey's anxiety is quite severe. I think it goes without saying that the ‘boy fixes girl’ trope is over done and highly problematic and just unrealistic.

The dynamics Kinsella creates between the members of Audrey's family make this book very funny (and sometimes touching too). And i've actually never done it in the 10 years i've played WoW (which is very similar to the game in the book). I mean, I'm sure there are parents out there that are like this, but to the extent where I found myself questioning how exaggerated these stereotypes were was ridiculous. Audrey and I have the same young age, but she already has a boyfriend, and that her boyfriend, Linus, was the one who kinda cured her.My dad is tall and handsome in a car advert way, and he looks like the boss, but inside, he isn’t really an alpha male. I understand some authors choose to not include information like this as "the actual event doesn't matter", but it made the book extremely anti-climatic and left me very unsatisfied.

With his friendly, orange-slice smile and his funny notes, he starts to entice Audrey out again - well, Starbucks is a start.With his smile and his funny notes, h starts to entice Audrey our again - well, Starbucks is a start.

Some of the anxiety lines made me tear up out of accuracy, and Frank's video game obsession mirrored how actual hardcore gamers are.Our anxieties will always be there, they are a part of life but as we recover, we learn how to deal with our anxieties more and I wish YA authors understood this better.

As I started to tell Audrey's story, it became apparent that I was telling a story which would appeal to young adults, and it turned into a young adult book. But I can remember all of my irrational fears, how long it would take me to calm down once I was scared, and how the smallest, most insignificant things would affect me greatly. As their friendship deepens, Audrey's recovery gains momentum, and she and Linus begin to develop feelings for each other. In 2014 she published a Young Adult novel Finding Audrey about a teenage girl with social anxiety and her madcap family, and in January 2018, Sophie published her first illustrated book for young readers about the charming adventures of a mother-daughter fairy duo, Mummy Fairy and Me (also published as Fairy Mom and Me).

This book is a sorry excuse for representation and I can not believe how atrociously the author handled this topic. Mental and psychological illnesses are unfortunately treated as a second class citizen in relation to physical illnesses. Seven: compete professionally (for the game in the book, this seems like the natural final step because it seems like a very tournament-heavy game. The music on the sound system is too loud and the conversations around me are hitting my eardrums with a force that makes me wince, but I’m going with it instead of resisting.
