Did I mentioned already that I squealed out loud when I saw this book on the library shelf a few weeks back? I'd heard good things about it and knew I had to read it. It didn't disappoint at all.
It's the story of Audrey, a normal teenage girl who breaks up with her self-centred boyfriend, Evan. The thing is, Evan is in a local band who suddenly gets very famous after he writes a song about his break-up with Audrey. Audrey, Wait! becomes a huge song that everyone's talking about and forces Audrey into the spotlight. She now has to deal with rumours and fans, fake people and the paparazzi.
The thing that's so great about this book are the characters. Especially Audrey. She's so fun and funny and sarcastic and very relateable. Her relationship with her parents, her best friend Victoria, her new love-interest James are all very believeable and oh god, put up with me here - fun. I didn't want to put this book down. I was rooting for Audrey from the very first page and I loved being in her head. More from Robin Benway, please!
I was not keen on the cover of the book - how superficial of me. Now I have read your review I am desperate to read it. It sounds like one of those nice and easy reads that will make me chuckle all the way through it.ReplyDelete

I've been feeling like reading more light books lately too, this one seems like it would fit the bill nicely.ReplyDelete
Fun, breezy and light is the perfect way to describe this book!ReplyDelete
