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.
Between Linus and her doctor, that’s basically all Audrey has trying to help her. Her mother is crazy and annoying 99% of the time. Her older brother is engrossed in his own life, the little brother is only there for comical relief, and the dad is pretty useless all around. This story may have been better without the parents present, it just seemed to be a crutch in order to have the book end a certain way.
It was a quick, easy, light read. I didn’t take anything away from it that would push me towards recommending it to anyone or thinking about anything that happened in the story again.
