More About Oh Yeah, Audrey! by Tucker Shaw
 
 
 
Overview
It'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.

Sixteen-year-old Gemma Beasley sneaks off to New York City to meet friends she only knows from a joint Tumblr page devoted to their passion for Audrey Hepburn. Now they’re meeting in person for the first time in a day of Hepburn-inspired fun. The arrival of Dusty, a gorgeous music industry scion Gemma has been flirting with for weeks, upends Gemma’s and her new friends’ big day as he steals Gemma away with seductive promises of romance—and an actual Hepburn dress. Audrey may be the center of just about everyone’s attention in Shaw’s (Anxious Hearts) story, but it’s really about friendship, shared dreams, and the lonelier and less glamorous side of Holly Golightly. The question of what, exactly, men gave Holly money for in Breakfast at Tiffany’s hangs over the novel, paving the way for a direct lesson in sexual consent as Gemma’s whirlwind romance sours and she realizes she’s abandoned her friends. These and other lessons land fairly heavily and sit uneasily against the giddy fun of the rest of the book. Ages 13–up. (Oct.)
