Everybody’s singing, “Audrey, Wait!”
Audrey Cuttler’s life hasn’t been the same since that song, “Audrey, Wait!” hit the airwaves. All she wants to do is go to concerts, hang out with her friends, and maybe score a date with the cute boy who works with her at the Scooper Dooper.
But now, her ex-boyfriend’s song about their breakup is at the top of the charts and she’s suddenly famous! The paparazzi won’t leave her alone, the tabloids are trying to make her into some kind of rock goddess, and the Internet is documenting her every move!
Will Audrey ever be able to have a normal life again? Get ready to find out, because it’s time for Audrey to tell her side of the story.
OH MY GOD I loved this book, like I loved this book a lot. I have a secret love for cheesy YA Romance books, and when I saw the synopsis of this one I seriously couldn’t resist.
Seriously, this combines some of my most favorite things in books: YA, romance and fame. Like seriously, if I have a guilty pleasure for cults, you should see my guilty pleasure for YA fame books (like Secrets of My Hollywood Life by Jen Calonita). So I couldn’t WAIT to devour this book. And devour it I did. I finished it easily within a day, and found myself wanting to read anything Robin Benway put out.
There were absolutely cliche elements in it, but that was okay, just enough cliche makes me happy, but it was also funny. Like really, really funny, and I enjoyed that. I’ve loved music all my life and the way that Audrey talks about music is basically how I’ve always felt about music.
Audrey was super likeable, and I found myself just honestly, really enjoying this book. It’s something I would absolutely come back to again, and have no problem recommending to fans of Sarah Dessen, Meg Cabot and the like. Benway is a phenomenal writer and knows the right mix of everything to keep people interested. I want to dive into anything else she’s ever written because even if it’s only half as good, it’ll still be amazing.
This book for me is in the same vein as the Anna and the French Kiss books, but funnier. Like I really laughed out loud multiple times at this book, I can’t get enough.
