Oh Yeah, Audrey!
By Tucker Shaw
Release Date: October 14, 2014It’s 5:00 a.m. on Fifth Avenue, and 16-year-old Gemma Beasley is standing in front of Tiffany & Co. wearing the perfect black dress with her coffee in hand—just like Holly Golightly. As the cofounder of a successful Tumblr blog—Oh Yeah Audrey!—devoted to all things Audrey Hepburn, Gemma has traveled to New York in order to meet up with her fellow bloggers for the first time. She has meticulously planned out a 24-hour adventure in homage to Breakfast at Tiffany’s; however, her plans are derailed when a glamorous boy sweeps in and offers her the New York experience she’s always dreamed of. Gemma soon learns who her true friends are and that, sometimes, no matter where you go, you just end up finding yourself. Filled with hip and sparkling prose, Oh Yeah, Audrey! is as much a story of friendship as it is a love letter to New York, Audrey Hepburn, and the character she made famous: Holly Golightly.
I am obsessed with Audrey Hepburn. I've seen almost all of her movies and have a picture of her as Holly Golightly hung up in my room. So when I saw the cover of this book, I about had a heart attack because I was so excited. A YA book about a girl as obsessed with Audrey as I am? I could only imagine being swept off my feet by a gorgeous guy while attempting to go on a 24-hour Audrey adventure. This book sounds so fun and whimsical. Seriously, it's like this book was made for me. I can't wait to finally read it!
