Waiting on Wednesday is a popular weekly meme that was started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. It’s where you spotlight a book that you’re really excited for and are eagerly anticipating. So what am I dying for this week? It’s a contemporary novel about two First Daughters called
When Audrey Met Alice by Rebecca Behrens
Publication Date: February 4, 2014
First Daughter Audrey Rhodes is convinced that living in the White House is like being permanently grounded. Except with better security. What good is having your own bowling alley if you don’t have anyone to play with?
After the Secret Service cancels the party she’d spent forever planning, Audrey is ready to give up and spend the next four years totally friendless–until she discovers Alice Roosevelt’s hidden diary. Alice was a White House wild child, and her diary tells all about her outrageous turn-of-the-century exploits, like shocking State visitors with her pet snake and racking up speeding tickets in her runabout. Audrey starts asking herself: What Would Alice Do? The former First Daughter’s outrageous antics give Audrey a ton of ideas for having fun . . . and get her into more trouble than she can handle!

I’ve always been a fan of white house children stories and this one is no exception. I hope to get my hands on a copy of this as soon as it comes out (or sooner :)) and I have high hopes for it. There’s a lot of ways that WHEN AUDREY MET ALICE could go, and I think that Rebecca Behrens will be pleasantly surprising. This is a premise unlike any I’ve heard of before, so I’m psyched to see how it turns out!
