Praise: “Paul Rudnick makes me lie hysterical on the floor, screeching with laughter and sobbing with fury that I can’t write the way he does.” – E. Lockhart, author of We Were Liars

Hey, today I will be book reviewing It’s All Your Fault by Paul Rudnick. I had randomly selected it at the public library, and especially given that it is a fairly new novel, I had never heard of it before. Despite that, I decided that it was worth a try, based on the fascinating yet hilarious cover and book sleeve blurb.

Below is the quoted book sleeve blurb in replacement of the summary I normally write, for the sake of giving away no spoilers.


“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!!!!


-Paul Rudnick, author of It’s All Your Fault




I enjoyed this more than I thought I would; I gave it such a high rating because it was generally hilarious throughout the book. The dynamic between the two main characters were the perfect mix: an uptight nerdy country girl, and a diva popstar who soaks in all the attention. It’s a fun, lighthearted book, that you’ll flip through eagerly wanting to know what drama happens to the girls next.

-Catey, you were so on it,- said Sophie. -You just stood there and you looked around and you saw this convertible. You pointed at it and you said, 'The Lord provides.' --You looked up to heaven and you gave  (1).jpg
