Audrey, Wait!

From Goodreads:
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. This irresistible, fast-paced novel has a totally hot new paperback cover! Its the song everyones singing. And its about her! But for Audrey, becoming famous overnight equals total, life-changing disaster…

I loved the premise of this book from the very beginning. You always wonder how those people out there feel who have songs written about them in a not-so-flattering light. How do you deal with all of that crap online with people bashing you? Or wanting your autograph on the street? Robin Benway gives her take on what would happen and it is HILARIOUS.

I am a big fan of female characters who have a little edge to them – a little snarky, a little sarcastic, and a little cynical. I identify with these girls and Audrey is no exception. She was so hilarious and I laughed out loud so many times I lost count.

I have another book by Robin Benway (The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May & June) and I definitely need to read it soon. Audrey, Wait was a fun, fast read that still makes me laugh when I think about it.

  1. I’ve heard this book is really good and I’ve had it on my shelf for almost a year now, but haven’t read it! I’m glad you liked it…might need to move it up on my list!

  2. LOVE Audrey :-) glad you did, too.

  3. This is one of my favourite YA books, love the crazy cat!

  4. This is one of the best books I’ve ever read! I laughed out loud, too, something I rarely do when I read. Extraordinary Secrets is also fantastic, but very different from Audrey, Wait!

  5. Sounds like a good book! Definitely adding it to my to be read list.

  6. I’ve been wanting to read this one for quite some time. I even bought it at Borders a few weeks ago and yet, there it sits on my shelf :P

  7. I love this book! I recommend it to people all the time when they’re looking for a good contemporary YA. I didn’t think The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May & June was quite as good, but it was still pretty fun. Great review!

  8. This book made me laugh a lot while I was reading it too, and I kept writing down quotes from it. So funny! I’ve been wanting to read her other book as well, so let us know what you think of April/May/June!

  9. Yes! This was SUCH a fun/funny book! I loved it a lot more than I thought I would!

  10. [...] fell in love with Robin Benway’s writing with Audrey, Wait and can only imagine how Also Known As will turn out. I love the idea of a teen spy in New York and [...]
