Audrey, Wait!

Audrey, Wait!
by Robin Benway

Audrey is a music enthusiast.  She sits in her car and cranks the stereo up until the speakers literally disintegrate.  Her room is a giant homage to music and musicians with her wall-to-wall collage of all things music cut from magazines over the years.

It should be no surprise that Audrey's first real boyfriend was Evan, lead singer of the Do-Gooders.  Granted, the band was just ok and the music wasn't all that great, but he was a musician and she was his muse.

Unfortunately, her breaking up with him becomes his biggest inspiration because he writes "Audrey, Wait!", the newest hit to rock the Billboard charts.

Now she's not just recognized on the street, she's famous.  When she goes to concerts, she's brought to the VIP lounge and given complete backstage access.  She's being offered tons of free swag by companies wanting free advertisement from her as she's hounded by paparazzi and stalked by fans.

Her life is drastically different.  Luckily she's got very understanding parents, an amazing best friend, and a guy who seems to be getting more important every day.

But can she keep them all as she juggles them, fame, and school?

Final thoughts: This is another one of those cotton-candy books.  It's fun to read and doesn't make your brain work hard.  You can just relax and enjoy the ride.  If you're a music fan, you'll love all the references and discussions about what's good and what's bad, though you may want to argue a few of Audrey's preferences.
