Released in 2012, Cat Girl’s Day Off introduces readers to Natalie (Nat) Ng, a typical teenager…except for the fact that she can talk to cats, which she tries very hard to hide. When one of her best friends, Oscar, shows her a viral Internet video featuring a famous blogger being attacked by her own cat, Nat realizes what’s really going on. Soon her and her friends are caught in the middle of a celebrity kidnapping mystery that takes them through Ferris Bueller’s Chicago and on and off movie sets.
Now we’re excited to release a new paperback version of Cat Girl’s Day Off. Check out the new cover below!
Here’s what major reviewers said about the book:
- “A worthwhile adventure and an easy sell for feline fanciers who already know what their pets are saying.” —Kirkus Reviews
- “Pauley offers amusing insights into the minds of cats, snappy dialogue, and a fast-paced plot. Readers should easily relate to Nat, and cat-lovers in particular will find a lot to enjoy in this romp.” —Publishers Weekly
- This title has the light, buoyant humor of a Meg Cabot book, with the same blend of superpowers and high-school life that won Pauley many fans with Sucks to Be Me. And the cats! Helping, hindering, sniffing out bad guys, sneering at good guys, the cats shamelessly rule. —Booklist
- Pauley’s homage to Chicago and her favorite teen movie is entertaining, hilarious, and exceptionally creative. —School Library Journal
Let us know what you think of the new cover! The paperback version will be available October 30! Meowza!
