In Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway, Audrey breaks up with Evan during the afternoon of the night when his group, the Do-Gooders, have a rep from a recording label in the audience for their performance. Between the time of the break up and the concert, Evan manages to write the song that will catch the rep's attention and launch their career, Audrey, Wait!
Will Audrey's life ever be the same after she's revealed in the national media as the muse for the song--and comes across in the article based on an impromptu phone interview as not-so-nice, just like in the song? Does Audrey have a chance at forming a new relationship with James, her co-worker at the ice cream shop, despite all the attention from the other students at their high school and the national media and the fact that the song about her hits the Top 10 at the same time as their first date?
Not to worry because Audrey has not only James, but a decent set of parents and her best friend Victoria to help her through her fifteen minutes of (unwanted) fame. What more could a teenager need?
Audrey, Wait! is a quick, fun read. Benway's "teenage voice" rings true, and the interactions and conversations between Audrey and Victoria are especially realistic.
My overall personal rating of Audrey, Wait! is a B+.
