One last chance. One wild weekend. Flat out the funniest book of the year.
My name is Caitlin and up until forty-eight hours ago I had never:
Tasted alcohol, kissed a boy, sang in public at the top of my lungs, kidnapped anyone or–WHAT? STOLEN A CONVERTIBLE?
Now I’m in jail and I have no idea what I’m going to tell:
The police, my parents, the mayor, all of those camera crews and everyone on Twitter.
I have just noticed that:
My nose is pierced and I have-WAIT? IS THAT A TATTOO?
I blame one person for this entire insane weekend:
My famous cousin.
Who is also my former best friend.
Who I have HATED for the past four years.
Who I miss like crazy. NO I DON’T!!!!
IT’S ALL YOUR FAULT, HELLER HARRIGAN!!!!
“Paul Rudnick is one of the funniest people out there and he’s on fire with It’s All Your Faul. This book is as fun and crazy as a wild night out. I had to know what happened next.” — Andy Cohen, host of Watch What Happen Live
“Paul Rudnick makes me screech with laughter and sob with fury that I can’t write the way he does.” – E. Lockhart, New York Times bestselling author of We Were Liars
“Caution: Do not read in public. Will cause you to laugh (and possibly cry) out loud, sometimes at the same time. Screamingly funny and yet warmly touching. Buy multiple copies: You’ll want to share this one with friends.” – Meg Cabot, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Princess Diaries and Mediator series
«“Hilarious, irresistible, and oh so timely.” — Kirkus, starred review https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/paul-rudnick/its-all-your-fault/
“Eschewing common sense and exhibiting a great deal of heart, this is one riotously good read.”
“[A] whirlwind, laugh-a-minute escapade about a girl swept far outside her comfort zone,
with real heart beneath the acid humor.” — Publishers Weekly http://www.publishersweekly.com/978-0-545-46428-4

PLEASE WELCOME PAUL TO BOOKHOUNDS YA
- What is on your nightstand?
My iPad, my glasses, the wrappers from far too many Hershey’s Kisses with almonds, my phone and a copy of the latest New Yorker.
- What author would you totally fan?
There are so many – in adult fiction, I worship Maria Semple, Gillian Flynn and Donna Tartt. In YA, I’m a huge fan of Aaron Hartzler, Tim Federle and Jeffrey Self.
- What makes you cringe?
In a sympathetic way: really bad singers. In an outraged way: politicians who promote hatred.
- Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
I’ll make overall outlines, but then allow my characters to surprise me and do whatever they please. I can’t stop them.
- Is there a word you love to use?
I love words which can mean enormously different things, depending on the context. Such words include darling, please, charming, disgusting and yum.
