Once again I find myself sitting down to a book that I have to read the whole thing! I loved Audrey, I felt for her, I have panic disorder, among other things so I can understand her anxiety. I hate that so many kids have to go through these things concerning school.
I loved Audrey's brother Frank and his friend Linus. Frank is so funny and I think he does just fine. I loved that Linus talked to Audrey in the way she was comfortable and didn't make fun of her.
I wasn't a big fan of the mom throughout the story. I was waiting for them to say she has something happen to her or she had a disorder herself but, unless I missed it, she seemed an extreme mom! Some parts she was really funny, but half the time she's yelling and I wanted to cringe!
I loved reading about the family dynamics and Audrey's session with the video camera, some of those were classic :) Oh and how could I forget about the little brother Felix, he was just precious and funny in his own right :)
I just really loved this book and it is now on my amazon wishlist to buy.
