The story takes place with Lara’s world crumbling before her: her boyfriend Josh stopped communicating her six weeks ago, her business partner and best friend left her to fend for herself while she’s out dallying somewhere with a beach hunk, and she couldn’t tell her parents her business partnership is a big bust, to make things worst Lara has to attend a funeral for a great aunt she never knew she had.

SUMMARY
[Warning – May Contain Spoilers]
Finding Audrey is a fairly new book by Sophie, its surprisingly in the narrative of a teenage girl named Audrey. Audrey is a teenage girl who is currently staying at home because she was bullied at her former school resulting in her lack of self-confidence and anxiety. We find this perky teen narrating her life in her household: an overprotective housewife of a mum, a businessman dad, a gamer (obsessed) brother and a little four-year-old brother. Her family is very supportive trying to nurture her needs (and dare I say why can’t most parents be supportive of our dreams and nurture us in times of our struggles?). Anyway, things are kinda hectic in her family and Audrey seems pretty chill, she visits her doctor who tries to help her recuperate by giving all these tasks, one of them being to interview and videotape everything that goes on in her household and strangers.
