Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway

Audrey didn't think that her breakup with her boyfriend Evan would be a big deal. But then Evan and his band write a song about the breakup entitled; Audrey, Wait! After the song is played for the first time in a small local venue, its popularity grows and the band rockets to stardom, but much to her dismay, Audrey does too. With press everywhere and fans as well as haters recording her every move, she just wants to keep living her life. And when she meets cute new guy James, she starts hoping that maybe things can stay relatively normal. But then Audrey and her best friend Victoria start fighting and people begin to turn against Audrey, she wonders if anything will ever be the same.

I was really excited to get my hands on this book. I had heard a lot of great stuff about it and I had high expectations. I was absolutely enthralled with Audrey and the other characters in the book. They are all completely realistic and showed the dynamics of teen relationships perfectly. Audrey's narration is equally funny and touching and I felt that I really got to know her by the end of the book. I couldn't finish this book fast enough. I think the best thing about this book was that it was really original. There aren't any books out there that have anything near the same plot line, at least that I've heard, so it was nice to read about something refreshing and unique. Another thing I liked was that throughout the story, there was tons of humor which was great. I love reading a book that will make me laugh and Audrey, Wait! definitely did that for me. It was just a great, feel-good, fun to read kind of book; the kind that's right up my alley. I'm excited to see what else Robin Benway has to offer us because I think she's a great new writer that I'm going to have to keep tabs on. She really made this book, addicting, funny, creative, and thoughtful all at the same time, and I would highly recommend it.
