Audrey decided it was time to end her relationship with her wanna-be rock star boy friend Evan. She knew it was time. She made a list. She knew it was going to majorly change things, but Audrey never expected this. In the eight hours between Audrey and Evan’s break-up and Evan’s band’s gig, Evan wrote a new song called “Audrey, Wait!” all about their break-up. It was a hit. It was more than a hit. It slowly became the newest #1 song in the country.

Now Audrey can’t go anywhere without hearing her song. Reporters from celebrity gossip magazines start following her around, taking pictures and demanding interviews from Audrey, the music scene’s newest muse. Audrey starts to learn that being in the limelight is not all it seems to be on the outside. Audrey and her friend Victoria get backstage passes to another popular band only to realize that the lead singer thinks that Audrey can inspire him to write better songs. Not to mention, someone snaps a compromising picture of Audrey and the lead singer which finds its way to magazines everywhere. Victoria isn’t much help either. She wants Audrey to endorse products so they can get free stuff. Even Audrey’s boss at the ice cream shop tries to capitalize on Audrey’s newfound fame by advertising that the infamous “Audrey, Wait!” girl works for him. Audrey wants her normal life back. She wants to hang out with her friends without being followed. She wants to date again without being referred to as a muse or a slut. Most importantly, Audrey wants to get to know her quirky co-worker James a little bit more.

Audrey, Wait! personifies the old saying “The grass is always greener on the other side.” Audrey learns that after coveting the celebrities’ so-called perfect lives, they aren’t as great as they seem. Benway creates believable characters that you wish were real. Audrey, Wait! is funny, original, thought-provoking, and enjoyable.
