it was amazing
Read in July, 2007

Because I am a high school librarian, I mainly read YA novels. Every once in a while, I will venture into the world of adult fiction - usually at the insistence of my husband whose reading suggestions have never let me down. This book was WONDERFUL! Funny, sexy, heartbreaking - all the elements I appreciate in my summer time reading selections. At a YA Lit Conference, I heard about a book titled Audrey, Wait! This book came out a year after Halpin's and has the same central plot point. I am curious if anyone else thinks Benway's book is Halpin's story retold for the YA crowd.

Brendan Well, first of all, thanks for the great review! As for Audrey, Wait--my experience with my own YA books is that there's at least a year and a half between turning the book in to the publisher and it actually seeing print. So it's very unlikely I got ripped off here. Which is too bad, because a little righteous indignation would really help my day. Oh well...
