"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

The premise was something I'd never read before: a girl suffers from debilitating social anxiety following an incident at school, which results in her never leaving her house and wearing dark sunglasses at all times. Enter her brother's cute video gaming friend who slowly starts to pull her out of her shell.
The relationships in this book were so strong. I loved the family, how they drove each other crazy but clearly loved each other, and how they welcomed Linus into their circle. The mom's anti-video game antics got a little old, but I did appreciate Frank's retaliations, which were smart and pretty hilarious.
But the best part about this book though was the writing. It's Sophie Kinsella to the T: brilliant humor, strong voice, and fast-paced. I hope Kinsella writes more YA!
The character development of Audrey and her dealing with mental illness/anxiety disorder was really great. Especially as Audrey's healing process allows her to become more aware of how her illness has effected her family. I enjoyed all of the characters, her brother Frank, Linus, her neurotic/loving mother, her father, and little brother Felix.
I do wish I could have learned exactly "what" took place drove Audrey to this place of depression and anxiety. However, I think the focus of the story was to show Audrey working towards the future and not reflecting on the past. Something we all need to do. I liked the book.
Truly a breath of fresh air. I had no idea where the story was going, or what was going to happen, and I loved the wild ride. Finished it in two days, and wished there had been more.
I loved this book. It was fun to read and extremely relatable for me. The format was great, and I feel this would make a hilarious and heart wrenching movie.
Right now my very favorite Sophie stories are Undomestic Goddess, Do You Want to Know a Secret, and Twenties Girl. But I think I'll re-read this one as well
