Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway

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! It's the song everyones singing. And its about her! But for Audrey, becoming famous overnight equals total, life-changing disaster. . .

I swear, Meg Cabot (LUV HER!) was right when she wrote a this about the book:

"Irresistible - like a catch song you can't get out of your head... I loved, loved, loved this book."

"Audrey, wait! Audrey, wait! You walked out the door and I want you to see me slam it shut! Audrey, wait! Audrey, wait! You can say all you want but I want you to know that this is the cruellest cut!"

~Audrey, Wait! by the Do-Gooders.

Audrey, Wait! is the amazing story of a girl who becomes famous when her ex writes a song about her. Life is fun at first but then as the paparazzi and people get crazy, then things get a little out of control. I swear, it feels like a mix of Secrets of My Hollywood Life and The Princess Diaries. I just loved it!

Audrey just breaks up with her boyfriend Evan, lead singer of the D0-Gooders as we enter the story. BOOM! we know what's going to happen.

He writes a song about her.

And the bad part for Audrey is that THE SONG is actually...good. It rockets to the top of the Billboard charts and then suddenly, everyone wants to be her best friend, when in reality, Audrey just wants to have a normal life, ask the guy who works with her at the Scooper Dooper to ask her out and you know, just be a teen. Uh oh, Audrey had a LOT come her way. Paparazzi starts following her every where, the most popular girl at school wants to become her friend, articles are being published about her everywhere, and major companies are giving her free stuff. Her parents think that she's getting a little out of hand (when in truth, the media stretches things), Bands are asking her to go out with them for inspiration (I felt bad for her with that one night thing with that band guy...Simon was it?) and she gets cut of normal school life and has to end up doing her school work in the school office.

Audrey was an amazing character. I admire her for her spunkiness, her love of music, her "normalness" when things get out of hand, and her humor. I really love how she doesn't want the attention. She doesn't care about being famous. I don't think too many people could do that. Usually, if you've been famous for a while, sure I could understand, it gets a little overwhelming. But new stars? Puh-lease, even I would go crazy with excitement...well, maybe. I don't know. But yeah, love her for standing up for what's right, thinking morally (although the swearing could be done without) and learning from her mistakes.

Evan had it coming. Sure, I think he's cute. A teeny bit. But yeah, he's hilariously self-absorbed and he deserved to be dumped (ouch, did that really come from me?) but still, I think he's still sweet somewhere deep inside. JAMES RULES! Luv him :)

Victoria, Audrey's best friend, is HILARIOUS. Like some of the stuff that she says is like, laugh-out-loud worthy material.  She's like that spunky, sassy best friend that every girl wishes that she had, someone who stands up for her and supports her. I think all characters in this book were hilarious though (even Audrey's parents!). But not as funny as Victoria...Go her! and that's what I really find like-able about this book, cause everything was hilariously "realistic". By "realistic" not meaning the song and the paparazzi chasing Audrey thing, but the emotions, setting and the real bits of the plot were just fantastic.

Overall, Audrey, Wait! is that catchy song that you don't ever want to forget. A hilarious read by the amazing Robin Benway, you're unlikely to hate the ever-so-original and laugh-out-loud Audrey. With emotions raging from Pee-in-my-pants hilarious to OMG-what-just-happened? sad, do yourself a favor and DON'T press the skip button over there. Read this book and you'll be singing praises about Audrey, Wait!
