“Hilarious new series from Queen of Teen – laugh your tights off at the (VERY) amateur dramatic antics of Talullah and her bonkers mates. Boys, snogging and bad acting guaranteed!
Picture the scene: Dother Hall performing arts college somewhere Up North, surrounded by rolling dales, bearded cheesemaking villagers (male and female) and wildlife of the squirrely-type. On the whole, it’s not quite the showbiz experience Tallulah was expecting… but once her mates turn up and they start their ‘FAME! I’m gonna liiiiive foreeeeeever, I’m gonna fill my tiiiiights’ summer course things are bound to perk up. Especially when the boys arrive. (When DO the boys arrive?) Six weeks of parent-free freedom. BOY freedom. Freedom of expression… cos it’s the THEATRE dahling, theatre!!”
This was a super cute, super fun read! I adored Tallulah and her funny ways. Tallulah is that type of girl that is super dramatic that it is so funny! She is always making small things big. I adored that she can look at things differently than most people.
One thing that had me laughing in this book was the slang! There was crumps, bejesus, and all sort of slang that made you laugh your head off. It wasn’t hard to understand, but you got the meanings right away. The book is filled with characters just like in Withering Heights. Ms. Rennison really took an classic and made it much more lovely to read. I adored how she incorporated it all in.
The drama in this book is pleasing. You see Tallulah fresh out of the high school, entering the real world. I adored watching Tallulah come into herself and discover new things. The love twist in this book are almost the exact same in Withering Heights.
If you want a fresh new take on a good classic, read this book! You will fall in love with Tallulah and her crazy ways. That is if she doesn’t knee you first! LOL : )
I give it 4 BITES!
