audrey, wait!

When funny, charming, absolutely-normal Audrey Cuttler dumps her boyfriend Evan, he writes a song about her that becomes a number-one hit…and rockets Audrey to stardom!

Suddenly, tabloid paparazzi are on her tail and Audrey can barely hang with her friends at concerts or the movies without getting mobbed--let alone score a date with James, her adorable coworker at the Scooper Dooper. Her life will never be the same…at least, not until Audrey confronts Evan live on MTV and lets the world know exactly who she is!


"A first novel with a voice that sings. 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. Irresistible."
