Katie starts her summer break focused on a single mission: saving up for sleepaway camp. When her first few efforts don't work out, Katie takes a job working for her neighbor, a glamorous woman whose apartment is overrun with 217 felines. How hard could a little bit of catsitting possibly be? In Katie's city of superheroes, supervillains, and maybe even super-cats...it could be VERY difficult indeed. Cat lovers of all ages will adore this fast-paced, laugh-out-loud graphic novel. --Talia
