Audrey, Wait!

"When funny, charming, absolutely-normal Audrey Cuttler dumps her boyfriend Evan, he writes a song about her that becomes a number-one hit - and rockets Audrey to stardom!

Suddenly, tabloid paparazzi are on her tail and Audrey can barely hang with her friends at concerts or the movies without getting mobbed - let alone score a date with James, her adorable coworker at the Scooper Dooper. Her life will never be the same - at least, not until Audrey confronts Evan live on MTV and lets the world know exactly who she is!'-GoodReads.

What would a girl do if the guy she just dumped wrote a song about her...that ended up 
becoming a smash hit? Well, you can find out the answer to that question in the incredibly 
funny and quirky book 'Audrey, Wait!'.

When Audrey decides it is just not working out between her and her boyfriend she walks
away from him, while he sits in his room calling after her "Audrey, wait!!" Who knew
those two little words could turn her life upside down? The song is not the most flattering,
calling her out on leaving him so people tend to think she is a really terrible person. 
Everyone starts treating her differently, mostly by acting mean to her.
No matter what happens, everything just seemed to be going wrong and it has
all stemmed from that song. No matter how hard she tries to get away from it,
it follows her everywhere. People stare at her when she's at concerts, she gets looks
at school, she can't even talk to the cute guy at work because of the mobs of 
people wanting to get a look at The Audrey. Her life is crazy.

Audrey is funny and snarky, just such a great character. I think she handled insta-fame
in a very realist manner, which made the story even more believable. Of course,
everyone would like to believe that they would be able to handle the same situation
with grace and class, but that's probably not how it would happen. It would probably
go how it went for Audrey.

With the great characters, fun story, and the treat of having some really great lyrics 
at the beginning of each chapter, Audrey, Wait! is sure to be a nice treat.
So if you love music, contemps, and a touch of romance, add this book to
your to be read shelf.
