Julie Klausner, whose dating memoir I Don’t Care About Your Band is currently being developed into a TV show for HBO by Adam McKay and Will Ferrell’s production company, just announced her second book. And this one is a young adult novel about an all-girls arts camp!

The art of making art, bitches! Plus, you know, illicit dabblings with counselors, and backstabbing ballerinas, and bisexually experimental actresses — all with the smell of Turpenoid and bug spray and Chanel No. 5 hanging in the air like a turgid clothesline.
