Praise for It's All Your Fault:“Paul Rudnick is one of the funniest people out there and he's on fire with It's All Your Fault. 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 Happens Live and New York Times bestselling author of The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year“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*“A culture clash on steroids. Rudnick's affection for his flawed characters lends emotional depth to the skillful satire. Targets skewered include the symbiotic culture of narcissism binding celebrities and their fans, teen literary clichés, and Brooklyn. Hilarious, irresistible, and oh so timely.” – Kirkus Reviews, starred review“A laugh-out-loud, irreverent tale built on as much snarkiness as sweetness. Rudnick expertly melds the good and the bad of youth and Hollywood without going unbelievably over the edge. Eschewing common sense and exhibiting a great deal of heart, this is one riotously good read.” – Booklist“A whirlwind, laugh-a-minute escapade about a girl swept far outside her comfort zone, with real heart beneath the acid humor.” – Publishers WeeklyPraise for Gorgeous:"Gleefully wacky and irreverent . . . readers are treated to Rudnick's considerable talents as a satirist as he uproariously eviscerates our celebrity-mad, class-conscious, appearance-obsessed, reality-TV-vapid culture with puckish delight . . . a wicked good time, with moments both outlandish and touching. And as a summer beach read? Well, it's perfect." -- Libba Bray, New York Times Book Review"When I wasn't laughing out loud (which was often), I was wiping away a tiny tear."-- Meg Cabot, bestselling author of The Princess Diaries series"Paul Rudnick is a champion of truth and love and great wicked humor, whom we ignore at our peril." -- David Sedaris, bestselling author of Me Talk Pretty One Day"Rudnick's first Y.A. novel is full of magic, snark, style, heart, and hilarity." -- The Atlantic WireHuffington Post's Five Things We're Into This Week"Paul Rudnick's generous, open heart, scathing wit, encyclopedic knowledge of pop culture and droll humor are all in force in his latest creation, Gorgeous, which is aptly named. I absolutely adored this book and snort-laughed through the entire thing. You will too." -- Melissa de la Cruz, bestselling author of the Blue Bloods series"Paul Rudnick's young adult debut, Gorgeous, is not a fairy tale. "Because in real life, fairy tales always end badly." What it is is a satire sharp as a stiletto heel that takes on celebrity culture, the fashion industry, consumerism, and princess stories. Oh, and it's wickedly hilarious." -- Boston Globe*"With writing that's hilarious, profane, and profound (often within a single sentence), Rudnick casts a knowing eye on our obsession with fame, brand names, and royalty to create a feel-good story about getting what you want without letting beauty blind you to what's real." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review"Acute, wickedly funny observations on appearance and identity punctuate this sprawling, caustic fairy tale that cheerfully skewers the fashion and film worlds and their celebrity-culture spawn. . . . A Cinderella story with a difference, Becky's journey to reconcile her inner household drudge and outer princess starts where most fairy tales end." -- Kirkus Reviews"Totally irreverent and wonderfully refreshing." -- RT Book Reviews

ego and superego and wrapping it up inside one young girl who, as they say, "acts it out." Two girls actually. No, wait a minute, three. Each perfectly aligned and off-kilter with one another. A terrific book.
The book is actually about a girl named Caitlin who comes from a large and very christian family. The family performs as a singing group at the malls and they are basically disclosed from the world. Therefore, Caitlin is extremely religious and this has nothing to do with religion, but her character is pious and stuck up. One day, Caitlin's aunt shows up to ask Caitlin to be a guardian/role model for Caitlin's cousin, Heller. Heller is an actress and is a wild one, who parties, drinks, and does drugs. Caitlin needs to keep an eye on Heller so that she does not do that for the weekend as there is a big movie promotion going on. Caitlin accepts the challenge to help her cousin change her evil ways.
This is what the book is about. If you are looking for romance between boy and girl, this is not it. I mean there is some interest in that area but it is more like lust and does not move further than that. With that being said, this book is mostly about best friends and their relationship that needed to be amended. There are some parts that are comical but for me, I did not find them hilarious. I was kind of embarrassed. I also did not like the main character. Like I mentioned earlier, she is pious and very stuck up. I did not find her likeable or relateable, which might make one wonder how I read this book considering that the book is written in her point of view. Well for one: I paid for this book, two: I was passing time since I was waiting for my boyfriend to get out of his three hr class, and three: it is well written. The author is a great writer but this plot was not for me, so that is why, even though I am writing almost a negative review, I am not rating it one star.
