Gemma Beasley is an Audrey Hepburn fanatic. She and her blogging friends have escaped to New York City to live out their fantasy of a Audrey Hepburn-themed weekend. When Gemma is swept off her feet by an enchanting stranger, she soon realizes the glamour of New York City isn't always as it seems. Tucker Shaw's Oh Yeah, Audrey! is a whimsical story, perfect for an afternoon, darling!
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.

"Any teen who's ever dreamed big or worshipped a star from afar will relate to this lightweight but nonetheless enchanting novel about identity and self-worth."
— Kirkus Reviews
"Audrey may be the center of attention in Shaw's story, but it's really about friendship, shared dreams, and the lonelier and less glamorous side of Holly Golightly."
