Vlog Book Review: Being Audrey Hepburn by Mitchell Kriegman

19286549In 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.

In the tradition of The Nanny Diaries and The Devil Wears Prada, this is a coming of age story that all begins with that little black dress…

WILL BE RELEASED: September 2, 2014

Okay, so I tried vlogging. I did it. I tried it. I made a fifteen minute video (I’m SO SORRY!)… but, I couldn’t stop talking. Next time, my review will be at least half the time, but, hey, I’m a newbie. Also, any tips on the whole book vlogging thing? I need help. 🙂 Check it out if you’re curious about this book.

I gave it 3/5 hearts.

    • Oh, I’m SO doing it. I need to read a few more Cinderella Story-esque books before I go through my Princess Mia transformation… and pop into the limelight. 😉
      WELL OK, maybe it was like three… not detailed or anything, just the standard elaborate “we took our clothes off” and then all that gushy, sweet, romantic stuff that the author puts in there so you absolutely have no doubt about what they were doing. I just totally was not expecting it…
      I’LL TRY! Vlogging is so much work… We’ll see 🙂 Thanks for the encouragement, Pema!
