First daughter Audrey Rhodes re-creates Alice Roosevelt's infamous antics in this fun, smart middle-grade debut.

First daughter Audrey Rhodes can't wait for the party she has planned for Friday night. The decorations are all set and the pizza is on its way. But the Secret Service must be out to ruin her life, because they cancel at the last minute-citing security breach and squashing Audrey's chances for making any new friends. What good is being "safe and secure" if you can't have any fun?

Audrey is ready to give up and become a White House hermit, until she discovers Alice Roosevelt's hidden diary. The former first daughter gives Audrey a ton of ideas for having fun...and more problems than she can handle.

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights new releases that you are eagerly anticipating. This week I am waiting on When Audrey Met Alice by Rebecca Behrens.

Why I Am Waiting

If you read here regularly, you know how much I love a good Middle Grade book (Rick Riordan is for sure in my top ten of favorite authors ever.) The idea of one first daughter finding another through her diary and learning how to have fun under the watch of the Secret Service sounds like so much fun. Reading debut’s is always exciting because you never know if you are discovering a favorite author.
