Audrey, Wait!

Benway, Robin. Audrey, Wait! Razorbill, 2008.

Audrey breaks up with her conceited boyfriend Evan on the night his band is giving a concert. He writes a song about their breakup, and the song goes viral. Audrey now has to deal with the backlash and the papparazzi who are following her everywhere.

I didn't think I would like this book, but Audrey was a likable character and it was fun to watch the hijinx she dealt with as Evan's band goes on tour and reporters twist her words and take very unflattering pictures of her. This book would be very popular with my patrons, between Audrey and the brouhaha surrounding Evan and the other people in her life - both friends and frenemies - who make having a normal life a bit more ... complicated.

Recommended for: young adults
Red Flags: alcohol use, language
Overall Rating: 4/5 stars
