Q

I'm looking for a book. It is about a woman who had a boyfriend write a whole rock album about their relationship, or so she thinks.

She's had to live it down while he's been off being a rockstar. Now he's come back to town and it looks like they might still have something. She goes to some lengths to see him without anyone knowing. I can't figure out the title! I think I would have read this sometime around 2011 if that helps at all. Thanks for any help you can offer!

Does this one sound possible? Or is it too young?

Audrey, Wait! (Apr 2008)
Author: Robin Benway

 When Audrey breaks up with her musician boyfriend, Evan, he is inspired to write a song about it, a catchy tune that launches his band to the top of the music charts--and that makes Audrey the target of paparazzi and gossip magazines--and the queen bee at school. Although Audrey tries to hide from fame, it finds her anyway (a first date with a co-worker ends with a police escort from a record store, where a crowd has trapped them). Audrey's phenomenal celebrity seems unlikely but she herself feels completely believable, and readers will find her both sympathetic and funny. Benway displays a keen ear for dialogue; this first novelist has a knack for showcasing her characters' wit as well as their sincere concern for one another.  Irresistible. Ages 12-up. (Apr.) --Staff (Reviewed April 21, 2008) (Publishers Weekly, vol 255, issue 16, p58)

This plotline sounds kind of familiar--I think there may be some other books that fit the bill. Let me know!
