Audrey, Wait!

by

Audrey, Wait! Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

California high school student Audrey Cuttler dumps self-involved Evan, the lead singer of a little band called The Do-Gooders. Evan writes, "Audrey, Wait!," a break-up song that's so good it rockets up the billboard charts. And Audrey is suddenly famous!

Now rabid fans are invading her school. People is running articles about her arm-warmers. The lead singer of the Lolitas wants her as his muse. (And the Internet is documenting her every move!) Audrey can't hang out with her best friend or get with her new crush without being mobbed by fans and paparazzi.

Take a wild ride with Audrey as she makes headlines, has outrageous amounts of fun, confronts her ex on MTV, and gets the chance to show the world who she really is.

Review:

"When Audrey breaks up with her musician boyfriend, Evan, he is inspired to write a song about it, a catchy tune that launches his band to the top of the music charts — and that makes Audrey the target of paparazzi and gossip magazines — and the queen bee at school. Although Audrey tries to hide from fame, it finds her anyway (a first date with a co-worker ends with a police escort from a record store, where a crowd has trapped them). Audrey's phenomenal celebrity seems unlikely but she herself feels completely believable, and readers will find her both sympathetic and funny. Benway displays a keen ear for dialogue; this first novelist has a knack for showcasing her characters' wit as well as their sincere concern for one another. Right after Audrey hears Evan's song for the first time, for example, she asks her best friend, 'So do I kill myself now, or do I wait and do it in front of Evan so he feels really, really, really bad?' 'You're not going to kill yourself,' the friend replies. 'Remember in health class, when they talked about how adolescents drink to mask pain? That's what you're going to do.' (Note to worried adults:they drink a milkshake.) Irresistible. Ages 12 — up." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Review:

"This fluffy-but-fun debut novel grabs the latest slot in the growing canon of the you-don't-really-want-to-be-famous subcategory of chick-lit....[W]ell pitched to the target audience of mid-teen girls. A pleasant little romp." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

When her ex writes a break-up song about her that rockets up the charts, Audrey is suddenly famous — she can't go out without being mobbed by fans and paparazzi. Take a wild ride with Audrey as she makes headlines, confronts her ex on MTV, and shows the world who she really is.

Synopsis:

A funny and smart romantic comedy about getting the guy. . . and finding yourself.

Sophomore Nora Fulbright is the most talented and popular new cheerleader on the Riverbend High cheer squad. Never mind that she used to be queen of the nerds—a chess prodigy who answered every question first, aced every test and repelled friends at every turn—because this year, Nora is determined to fully transition from social pupa to full blown butterfly, even if it means dumbing down her entire schedule. But when funny, sweet and very cute Adam moves to town and steals Noras heart with his untra-smarts and illegally cute dimple, Nora has a problem. How can she prove to him that shes not a complete airhead?

 
Allyson Valentine has created a story so full of enamoring characters, pitch-perfect humor, and delightfully frustrating romance that it will leave you cheering. Great for fans of Stephanie Perkins's Anna and the French Kiss, Susanne Colosanti and Sarah Dessen.

Praise for HOW (NOT) TO FIND A BOYFRIEND:

 

“Great characters and plenty of plot twists and turns add to the appeal of this lighthearted love story.” –Voice of Youth Advocates

 

“In Valentine's sassy debut, readers will groan as Nora messes everything up, and may grow frustrated with her choices (“For a smart girl you've had a pretty solid run of stupid”), but if they relate to her plight, they will find her funny, too.” –Booklist

 

“Valentine offers a book about honoring the truth, following one's bliss, and being oneself that avoids being saccharine or overly prescriptive.” –Publishers Weekly
