Delightfully Wild Ride!

Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway was published in 2008, but I thought it was definitely worth recommending again to those who are looking for a lighthearted, fun and clever book to read during winter break! It has nothing to do with the holidays, but is a fun escape nonetheless. It’s the zany story of high school student Audrey Cuttler’s brief claim to fame. Audrey breaks up with her self-absorbed boyfriend Evan, the lead singer of a band called the Do-Gooders. Evan writes a break-up song, the song goes to the top of the charts and, before you know it, everyone wants to know the girl behind the song. Fans are flocking to her school and accosting her at the mall. People magazine wants to do a story. Audrey loves music, but finds herself not liking the fame it’s spurred. She can’t hang out with her best friend or start a new romance without being followed. Audrey handles the consequences of fame with wit and sarcasm. This unconventional story of an ordinary girl is hilarious; it will make you laugh and cheer for Audrey! Audrey, Wait! is in the Older Teen section of the OCPL system.
