AUDREY,WAIT!



AUDREY, WAIT!

By Robin Benway

2008

313 Pages


Summary from Good Reads:
When her ex writes a break-up song about her that rockets up the charts, Audrey is suddenly famous--she can't go out without being mobbed by fans and paparazzi. Readers can take a wild ride with Audrey as she makes headlines, confronts her ex on MTV, and shows the world who she really is. Its the song everyone's singing. And its about her! But for Audrey, becoming famous overnight equals total, life-changing disaster.

My Thoughts:

What a fun, fast-paced read! Our story- Wait, Audrey opens as she is breaking up with her boyfriend Evan. A normal teenage romance coming to an end. A breakup with little drama and hardly any tears-but Opps! Audrey forgets that Evan is the lead singer of a small town local band The Do-Gooders and he writes an excellent song about their breakup titled Wait,Audrey! Suddenly the song is a hit! It's getting played on local radio stations and climbing the Billboard charts. Suddenly everyone has heard of The Do-Gooders and unfortunately Audrey. She becomes an unwilling celebrity. America's most loved/hated girlfriend. Everyone wants access to Audrey. Her story and her picture.

How in the world can Audrey have a normal teenage life and do the things she loves to do(concerts,friends, dating and school) with the paparazzi and fans tracking her every move?

Audrey is a great character-so easy to love. The relationship she has with her parents is hilarious and I really enjoyed the easy banter and love between them.

ONE of my favorite lines from the book-Audrey is referring to the guys in The Do-Gooders.

Page 297:

Keep in mind that these were the same guys who once had a contest to see how much bologna the four of them could eat. And let me tell you, in a bologna-eating contest, nobody wins.

If your looking for a quick, fun read check this one out. I'm off to see what else Robin Benway has written. She just earned a fan.

Later!
