I’ll be honest. This book got me first from the title, then the cover photo. I mean, anything pertaining to Audrey Hepburn catches my eye immediately. This book was no exception!
The best thing about this book was all the Audrey Hepburn facts & references thrown within. I learned a lot about her & her movies that I never knew. This book was a sweet adventure with many twists & turns. The main character, Lisbeth, also creates a blog, which, of course, I can relate to. 😉
In Being Audrey Hepburn, Clarissa Explains It All-creator, Mitchell Kriegman, tells the story of a 19-year-old girl from Jersey who finds herself thrust into the world of socialites after being seen in Audrey Hepburn’s dress from the film Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
Lisbeth comes from a broken home in the land of tube tops, heavy eyeliner, frosted lip-gloss, juiceheads, hoop earrings and “the shore.” She has a circle of friends who have dedicated their teenage lives to relieve the world of all its alcohol one drink at a time.
Obsessed with everything Audrey Hepburn, Lisbeth is transformed when she secretly tries on Audrey’s iconic Givenchy. She becomes who she wants to be by pretending to be somebody she’s not and living among the young and privileged Manhattan elite. Soon she’s faced with choices that she would never imagine making – between who she’s become and who she once was.
