I am a huge Audrey Hepburn fan so I was delighted when I received a copy of Being Audrey Hepburn by Mitchell Kriegman from St. Martins Press. Kriegman was also the creator of a favorite childhood television show Clarissa Explains it All. If you are a fan of Audrey or love a story with a fun, strong female at the heart of it then you will love this book!
The book centers around Lizzie aka Lisbeth who is fresh out of high school and thinking about where to go next. One night she has a chance encounter with a piece of Hollywood history and her life is forever changed. The story takes you from the working streets of New Jersey to the glamorous nightlife of New York city. With a cast full of colorful characters and Audrey fact sprinkled without, Being Audrey Hepburn is much more than a glossy, fashion read. It depicts real family relationships and the struggles we face when we are put into the real world and searching for our true self.
