Audrey, Wait!, Robin Benway

This is such a fun, happy book. It cheered me up and helped me forget (for about an hour) that I still feel sick (after spending the entire weekend asleep, in the bathtub, or stuck to the couch all the while feeling miserable) and that I have to lead my troops in song at the all school assembly first thing tomorrow morning. (Me: "Kids, do not wreck this for me!" as they go on stage).

Audrey is a very likable character and this book is begging to be made into a movie (I mean that in a flattering way, I'd go see this movie). Audrey dumps her longtime boyfriend who proceeds to write a hit song about her breaking his heart (hence the title) and then deal with sudden, unwanted fame.

He handed over the box, "All that's left are little paws and legs at the bottom of the box," he said. "It's a massacre." (p.239)
