Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary,Β Romantic Comedy,Β Rom-Com

Read Count: 3


This was my third re-read of this book over the years and it still made me fall all over for it. Audrey’s a high school girl whose boyfriend wrote a song about their breakup. He titled it Audrey, Wait!, and to her misfortune the song turned out to be so good, it became famous. Suddenly, she’s popular at school, everyone wants to be around her and the paparazzi are hounding her. And all she did was break up with him.

First of all, kudos to the author for the excellent, witty writing that made every part of this book a pleasure to read. Second, oh my god, the characters were so much fun, especially Audrey’s best friend, Victoria. Audrey’s internal voice, her description of her best friend, her outlook on the world – had this undertone of snark and dry wit that I highly enjoyed.Β Best, of all, the music references – the emotions music invokes in you – the author was spot on.Β 

There are some stories that are so much fun, they push you out of any maudlin mood and leave you smiling. That’s how good Audrey, Wait! was. A witty, fun-filled, laugh-out-loud book that makes you laugh to the point of bellyaches.

Blurb: 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!


I'm a die-hard bibliophile and I'm also an introvert. My blog's about books, books and more books. (yep, that was easy) I might, from time to time, write about life and its vagaries. I like taking pictures of books and doing origami.
