Being Audrey Hepburn by Mitchell Kriegman

Today's feature is Being Audrey Hepburn by Mitchell Kriegman. It's a bit of a throwback Thursday post since this is nearly a month after the release of the paperback, but just as Audrey is timeless, so is a great YA read. From the outset, readers are invited into a world where Manhattan's social elite party it up, clinking champagne glasses, and enjoying luxuries that the lower-middle class serves for them. The trays handing out those expensive beverage glasses are held by the hand of employees working three jobs to stay afloat. Would they trade places? Hmmm...this is the essential question.

When you have Audrey Hepburn's Breakfast at Tiffany's dress and gloves sitting in a box in front of you, the $923,187 price tag doesn't deter you when your best friend agrees to let you try on THE Audrey Hepburn LBD. The line "Ok.Try it on. But just for a minute" hooks readers into what is a whimsical tale of what happens on the other side. So the tale of Lisbeth Dulac unfolds and the problems of every day life take the back seat to becoming one of the most iconic characters to grace the silver screen. When you are from the land of too, make-up, and behavior, being a class act is what you desire. Lisbeth, inspired by Audrey finds out just who she really wants to be, but not before immersing herself in another world. If you are looking for an escape this New YA book will satisfy your thirst for a great read. Being Audrey Hepburn is now available in trade paperback from St. Martin's Press.
