    1. I need to clarify. This book is more of 4.5.Girl meets boy. Girl dates boy. Girl breaks up with boy. Boy writes song about girl. Girl becomes famous.You know, I really wasn't expecting this novel to be as unique as it was. It could have easily been annoying and cliched, but instead it was fresh and humorous. And when I say humorous, I mean it. This book was laugh-out-loud funny. So I advise you not to read this book in public. We don't want the person sitting next to you on that 5 hour flight to [...]


    2. What to do when you come to the realization that, behind the pretty packaging, your boyfriend is basically a self-centered, narcissistic asshat? If you have a brain in your head, you dump him, of course. And that is precisely what Audrey does. Normally that would be the end of the story--except that Audrey's boyfriend has his own band, a modicum of talent, the inspiration for the ultimate break-up song, and a record executive coming to see his gig on the same night that Audrey dumps him. And so, [...]


    3. Let me first say that this book is highly praised by both readers and literary critics, therefore I am sure there is a lot of merit to it. However for me "Audrey, Wait!" simply didn't work. There are several reasons why I didn't like this book: 15-16 year-olds having sex, drinking and taking drugs, excessive and unnecessary use of f-word, Audrey's unrealistic fame (I don't think anybody would be interested in a girl who had a song written about her, no matter how popular this song is). I was abl [...]


    4. Audrey has just dumped her sort a loser boyfriend who then writes a song about how she dumped him. Now she and the song have become famous. Seen as the villian in the song she's scrutinized by the public and her whole life has turned upside down.I really tried. Really I did, but after hitting the fourth chapter and the 50th f-bomb I just couldn't do it. I know teens cuss, and I know they use the f word, but seriously? Was that really necessary? I literally stopped reading and started opening ran [...]


    5. I AM SO GLAD I GOT TO READ THIS BOOK!Audrey, Wait! is fucking awesome. I hope we can aptly conclude how much thought I’m putting behind that statement, given this is the first time I’ve outright cursed on this blog. (Which is surprising, actually, as I’m such a potty mouth.)When I started this book, I was expecting great things because of all the glowing reviews it’d received. I went out of my way to buy it, too, which isn’t something I do often. Some people have been saying this book [...]


    6. A girl finally brings herself to break up with her agreeable(ish) but self-centered slacker boyfriend, and he chooses that moment to finally pay attention to her. Unfortunately, the attention is paid in the form of an angst-ridden song that ends up becoming his band's big break. Naturally this turns Audrey a celebrity and she finds herself practically held hostage by her new insta-fame. I wonder if anyone can read this book now and not think (if even for a moment) of the once-unavoidable "Hey Th [...]


    7. Wow. I expected this book to be good, and boy was I wrong, it was amazzzzing! I liked Audrey's character, the writing style, the music references, the plot, and how realistic it was while still being very light-readish. When I saw the description, I was like "this is unexpected, it seems pretty cool." Then when I actually got my hands on the book, I saw that it was reviewed by Meg Cabot, and I was pretty worried about the originality of it all. But no worries, Audrey, Wait! was as amazing as the [...]


    8. Audrey,Wait! was a totally cute book. I loved reading about how a entire persons life can change with the course of one song.If you want a cute read, this is def. worth your time!


    9. I. Am. Speechless. This is such an amazing, fantastic, spectacular book filled with wit on nearly every page! While not the most diverse book, it's unique and quirky, and I recommend it to any teenage girl (or guy, who knows?) because it will make you laugh so hard. Five stars! :D


    10. TODO MALDOMAL. ¿Que te paso Robin?. ¡Esto es un ultraje, un escándalo! Esto podría haber sido SO MUCH MORE. Tenemos a la protagonista que según la gente es la nueva Courtney Love, y le hacen slut-shaming a más no poder y en vez de que el libro sea "No soy una puta, NINGUNA chica es una puta, la palabra PUTA no es más que un invento misógino para hacer sentir mal a las mujeres y denigrarlas por ser dueñas de su vida sexual" termina siendo "¡Yo no soy una puta!, ¡yo no soy como ESAS chi [...]


    11. WHAT IS IT ABOUT?Robin Benway’s young adult novel “Audrey, Wait!” centers around an ordinary teenager from California, Audrey Cuttler, who loves music, works at an ice cream shop and has, in her own words, an elephantine cat. But after Audrey breaks up with her self-centered boyfriend and he writes a song about it, everything changes seemingly overnight. As the song “Audrey, Wait!” races up the charts, Audrey gets caught in the spotlight and cannot even leave the house without a mob of [...]


    12. Rating: 3.5 StarsWhen I first came across Audrey, Wait! in my library, I dismissed it as being a rather silly novel. You see, I can be a very snobbish reader. Unless a book screams "DEPTH!" to me, I usually walk away from it. Well, then I joined GoodReads and virtually all my friends have loved this novel - even those who aren't fans of contemporary literature. As such, I couldn't help but pay my library another visit and check out the excruciatingly bright hardcover edition of this book. I kept [...]


    13. When Audrey breaks up with her wanna be rock star boyfriend, little does she realise that later on that night, at a performance in front of an A&R gut, he hits the big time with a song about her.  Not about how nice she is, or what an awesome girlfriend she was, no, he sings about their break up and how she broke his heart.  The song rockets to number one in the charts and soon Audrey's life is turned upside down.  Her outfits are scrutinised and copied, her love life hits the headlines, [...]


    14. So I think we all know by now that contemporary? So not my main squeeze. I'll step out with one every once in a while, and after reading nothing but praise for Robin Benway's Audrey, Wait!, I decided it was worth a shot. Of course, before cracking that spine I had to sit myself down and have a talk: I was going to have to suspend disbelief, big time. I wasn't going to let the notion that the entire plot of Audrey, Wait! is utterly ridiculous and unrealistic overcome my enjoyment of the story. I [...]


    15. With Audrey, Wait!, I’ve now read all of Robin Benway’s books. It’s been ups and downs for me for the most part. She definitely has major contemporary talent, but some of them were not my favorites tbh. Audrey, Wait! was Benway’s first book, and there’s a lot to recommend it but she’s also come a long way since then.Audrey’s not really what I might have expected. In general, Benway’s heroines have been very likable, but Audrey’s a bit harder to take. She’s a teenager, I guess [...]


    16. My Thoughts: Audrey, Wait! is an amazing book! Its one of the best books I've read this year! I just loved it from start to finish! I usually don't rate books this high because either 1. They just aren't that great. 2. Because they don't seem to compare to my obsession of how good The Twilight Saga or Harry Potter was. I do enjoy books but I don't love love love them! This one was one I actually loved. I loved Audrey, and I loved James. I even loved to hate Evan! I don't know why I waited so lon [...]


    17. The biggest problem with Audrey, Wait! is that the whole plot revolves around a so-called catchy, chart-topping song of the same name. Since we can't hear the song, we can only rely on Audrey's word and the words of the song, which are, honestly, pretty lame. While there are popular songs out there with lame lyrics, it's usually because of the beat, the music. But because we can't hear the song in Audrey, Wait!, all I could think was that "Audrey, Wait!" was quite possibly the dumbest song ever, [...]


    18. I grew up as a Jenny amidst Tommy Tutone's "Jenny (867-5309)." I know an Eileen who lived through the heydey of "Come on, Eileen." These songs, however, were not written ABOUT us, they just featured our names. Imagine if you broke up with a dude who then turned around and wrote a song about how cold hearted you were, with the annoying refrain of "Your name, wait!" Audrey is that girl, and she's immediately launched into the public eye (a place in which she is none too comfortable). The character [...]


    19. Original post at One More PageI needed a break from all the dystopia an somewhat depressing books I've been reading lately, and Audrey, Wait! was the perfect one. I found this book while I was browsing in the Fully Booked and bought it impulsively -- and now it's one of the best impulse buys I've ever made.Audrey is your normal teenage girl who likes music, goes to concerts, works for an ice cream store, hangs out with her best friend and has a musician boyfriend. However, the musician boyfriend [...]


    20. Já queria ler este livro desde 2012 mas só agora pequei nele. Não foi nada de especial e esperava um pouco mais. Já li outro livro da autora "Emmy and Oliver" e esse foi muito melhor.---Na semana passada, na minha viagem de avião para a Bélgica, abri este "Audrey,Wait!" no tablet e mergulhei de cabeça neste livrinho, tanto que li mais de 70% do mesmo só no voo. O livro tem uma premissa engraçada. Audrey é uma adolescente que acaba com o seu namorado Evan, vocalista de uma banda. E ele [...]


    21. If you ever feel like reading a book that makes you laugh, lets you escape into a light, fun world, and really really entertains you, this is it. Audrey, Wait! is a simple book, nothing extremely original or groundbreaking, but it's one that works and that successfully reaches its goal - to entertain. I laughed out loud, I related to the characters, I enjoyed all the music references, and in my opinion, it has some of the most accurate characterization of teens I've read in a while. There are ma [...]


    22. My friend Karen has been trying to get me to read AUDREY, WAIT! for the last few months and I was happy it popped up this time around. I really had meant to read it when it came out in 2008 and the host of favorable reviews spurred me on, but somehow it got lost in the shuffle. I knew just the very basic premise of the book and I knew it involved a lot of great rock music--always a plus--and something about the title just sort of grabs you, doesn't it? I'm also a fan of the original hardback cov [...]


    23. Teenager Audrey Cuttlin dumps her rock-singer/boyfriend Evan, only to have Evan write a song about the experience. After hearing the song performed at a party, Audrey assumes she's heard the end of it, until the song gets picked up and becomes a smash hit. Now Audrey is the focus of a media firestorm as the song rockets up the charts.Can Audrey go back to being a normal teenager when her every move is scrutinized by the media, debated by the on-line community and documented for all to see?"Audre [...]


    24. "I'm a nice girl! I'm not a slut!"cons of this book: pretty much everythingpros of this book: alternative/indie music referencesI really wish I could say I loved this book- considering the fact that I was so, so excited to read it. A while ago I read on some site that this was "the closest thing you can get to Anna and the French Kiss". *cough* bullshit *cough*. It's definitely not even close. Audrey Wait!, tells a story of a normal high school girl who turns into a celebrity overnight. Her ex w [...]


    25. Meh.I'm giving this book two stars and I'm already feeling bad about it. It seems a bit harsh. But two stars is "it was ok" and that's my opinion because I was kind of expecting more of this book. I don't really know why. Maybe because the premise to it was kind of original. A girl who becomes famous for breaking up with her boyfriend. Though she never wanted the fame, she now has to deal with it.I don't know, maybe I'm growing out of this kind of books. The sixteen year-old girl who is kind of [...]


    26. Tää on ihana. Höttöinen ja yllättvän hauska tarina. Lisäksi pidin hahmoista. Pahan mielen iskiessä suosittelen lämpöisesti.


    27. 4.5 stars really & one of the funniest books i've read (if not ever, definitely in quite a while)Full review:Such an awesome story!I think I’ve underlined half of the book and 99% of those quotes are laugh-inducing.The are some notes I made while reading it:If I go to sleep tonight and then wake up in another story, I want it to be Audrey’s.If I have a bad day and I need a story to make me smile again, I would read Audrey’s.If I want my parents to be the best parents ever (even though [...]


    28. Originally reviewed on my blog Reading the Best of the Best.After having read and loved Robin Benway’s sophomore novel, The Extraordinary Secrets of April, May, and June, I decided that I would get her debut novel Audrey, Wait! This is a novel that I have heard nothing but amazing things about so I was eager to see how I would like it. I learned some things while reading this book: 1) I don’t listen to enough American music since each chapter in this book had song lyrics and I only knew a fe [...]


    29. This book wasn't my favorite. It was fine. I didn't want to jump off a roof while reading it, but several things drove me up the wall. 1. THE PREMISE: I couldn't get behind the preposterous premise. Girl breaks up with her boyfriend. Her boyfriend writes a hit song about her. Girl becomes super famous because of it. NOPE.This is too far-fetched to me. No one would care about Audrey. Does anyone care who Layla (Eric Clapton), Melissa (Allman Brothers), Angie (The Rolling Stones), Eleanor (The Bea [...]


    30. *Review published on Mundie Moms on 2/12/2012*Do a search for "songs with girls names in the title" and you'll be surprised at the amount of songs that are listed. Whoa. There are a hundreds of them. In fact, each generation seems to have their fair share of these songs. Now imagine if you were THAT girl. Wouldn't you want the world to know your side of the story?Robin presents us with just that plot. I have to admit I liked Audrey from these opening lines:The day I broke up with my boyfriend Ev [...]
