We’ve all listened to that one catchy song a singer wrote about his/her ex, and we’ve all unconsciously sided with the artist as the “good” person. Come on now, we must have all listened to Hey There Delilah or a song off of Maroon 5's album, Songs About Jane, at least once. But have we ever thought about how the ex feels? AUDREY, WAIT! tells the story of Audrey, the ex in the situation, who’s life changes just as drastically as her ex-boyfriend’s after he writes “Audrey, Wait!”.
Audrey Cuttler, where do I begin with this girl? CAN WE BE FRIENDS NOW, AUDREY?! Well the simple break down is that she's a 16 year old "average" girl who absolutely loves music. Unlike her best friend, Audrey hates her instant rise to fame with a fiery passion. Her extremely sarcastic comments through out the entire story made everything hilarious. She's sassy through and through, which gets her in some trouble during interviews!
I read this in one sitting because of the fun and light writing style. This was an incredibly entertaining read that made me laugh the whole way through! While being in the spotlight might sound glamorous, Audrey gets the chance to share her side of how the fame actually went.
Overall: 4 out of 5
