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.
This book was very fast to read, very light and kind of cool. The best rate I could give it is an "IT WAS OK", which that means 2 stars in goodreads, but I will add half of another star because it hooked me.
Gemma tell us a story of a seventeen year old who doesn't really know who is she, that is a totally fangirl of Holly Golightly, aka Audrey Hepburn, and who is making a journey to discover who she really wants to be. The book spins around the book/movie called "Breakfast at Tiffany's". In the prologue, recommend us to watch the movie first, but because I wasn't in the mood, I didn't. I kind of understood everything and I wasn't that lost. Gemma loves stories, but her story is one of the most hard to tell for her. Being an orphan and living with a depressed father wasnt how she would like to end her story. So one day, she woke up and took a bus to New York (just like Holly).
Her friends: Brayn, Trina & Telly. Those three are seriously the best. There's another character, Dusty. At first, Dusty was really cute and I even said that I love him. Later on, we see his true face. And Gemma begins to wonder who really she is after spending a whole night alone thinking about her life. Missing her father and his friends, she went back to everything began... Tiffany's.
Why I didn't like so much the book? Because it was too fast. It was in one day. The character doesn't develop too much, she just figured something that was in her head all the time. The second characters weren't that developed and Dusty was a jerk. I wanted more love or even a better end. I wanted to know what her father would say after "running away". I just wanted more. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't buy the book. The cover is beautiful, but the content is not that much.
