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.
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…
Lisbeth is a Jersey girl who works at a local diner but dreams of a glamorous New York City life la Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's. Her best friend Jess, who has an internship at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, surprises Lisbeth with the chance to try on Hepburn's famous Givenchy dress, and Lisbeth's world changes as Manhattan's rich and famous mistake her for one of their own at a Met gala. Thus begins a whirlwind of celebrity party-hopping for Lisbeth, with aspiring designer Jess updating Lisbeth's grandmother's vintage wardrobe behind the scenes. As Lisbeth worries that she'll be found out, she has less and less time for family, friends, and Jake, the boy she's flirting with back home. First-time novelist Kriegman (creator of Clarissa Explains It All) hits all the right notes for breezy escapist fiction Manhattan glamour, glitzy parties, couture designs, and the name-dropping that goes with them. Yet as the stakes grow higher, Kriegman neglects Lisbeth's New Jersey life (much as Lisbeth herself does). By the time she realizes she's "forgotten about Jake," readers may have forgotten him, too. Ages 14 up.
