Who is Audrey Wickersham? by Sara Shrieves
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A truly enjoyable and original perspective on the paranormal with an utterly empathetic heroine, a delightful sense of humour, and a cast of characters-both mundane and magical-that will keep the reader racing through those pages, “Who is Audrey Wickersham?” is a lively novel for YA and older readers. Free of explicit sensuality and only one instance of profanity, the only reason for the rating of 18+ would be-well, violence-lots of it.
Audrey is fifteen and has a devoted Dad nicknamed “Hulk,” a neighbor-former babysitter Bruce who is an R.N. and joyfully Gay, and a best guy friend Kirk who is two years older. She is also a prude and sensually an innocent. Life turns very funky when on a repeated visit to Magic Edge witchcraft supply store she discovers an annex to the regular store, and while waiting for a custom spell to be crafted, inadvertently knocks over a jar-and begins the process of turning zombie.
As the days pass all too quickly, Audrey discovers a propensity for blood-and body parts-learns her friend Kirk’s real secret, and is hunted by the magical Council. She wants desperately to preserve her Dad and friend Bruce, but doesn’t know if she can overcome her hunger-until Kirk steps in, and either makes things worse-or better.
