A first look inside the hilarious new novel from Catherine Wilkins

Next month we’re publishing My School Musical and other Punishments, the third HILARIOUS novel by Catherine Wilkins, author of My Best Friend and other Enemies and My Brilliant Life and other Disasters. And today, for the first time, you can read an exclusive extract of the new book!
