Her little brother is already in the juvenile deliquent system and her rebel of an older sister is always engaging in screaming matches with their mother. Lisbeth is the smart good girl of the family, so everyone thinks that she is bound for greatness and that she will be starting college soon to become a nurse practitioner. The only real support that Lisbeth has in her life is her grandmother and even though her grandmother tries to give Lisbeth plenty of support and encouragement, Lisbeth is completely unsure about her life and what she wants to happen in it.

Lisbeth is a devoted Audrey Hepburn fan. When Lisbeth's best friend Jess starts working at a museum. Lisbeth gets to see the dress that Audrey wore in "Breakfast at Tiffany's." Then suddenly Lisbeth finds herself mingling with the upper New York Society. Now being a part of this new world Lisbeth is trying to keep up. Jess helps her modify some old vintage dresses that Lisbeth found among her grandmother's things. Now Lisbeth is trying to juggle her job, a guy named Jake, who she is interested in, while trying to attend many social lite events that she is now being invited too. Lisbeth finally creates a fashion blog which people start rapidly following to where Lisbeth is starting to become one of the Queen Bees.

"Being Audrey Hepburn" was a lot of fun to read. It was quite the entertaining novel. I honestly feel like this is a very fun light hearted book to read. The more you read, the more you were engrossed into the story. I was a little disappointed in the ending which is why I am giving "Being Audrey Hepburn" four stars today. I feel like the ending was completely rushed and not at all complete.
