Review: Oh Yeah, Audrey! by Tucker Shaw


It’s 5:00 am 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 co-founder of a successful Tumblr blog - Oh Yeah Audrey! - devoted to all things Audrey Hepburn, Gemma has travelled 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.

This was a very quick read.

It's not the best quickie out there, but it was enjoyable. Especially if you're a fan of Audrey Hepburn and Breakfast at Tiffany's.

This is a great day-in-the-life of Gemma Beasley, and I loved how her story was told. It was sweet and fun and light and fluffy, and perfect for reading in your lunch break when it's raining outside and you need to cheer up a little.

Don't walk into this book expecting amazing revelations and a gripping story, you won't find that. What you'll find instead is a fun and flirty look at a teenager who loves all things Audrey and is struggling to grow up following the death of her mother.

And look at that cover. It's a stunner.
