9780007323906: Withering Tights (The Misadventures of Tallulah Casey)

Tallulah Casey is ready to find her inner artist. And some new mates. And maybe a boy or two or three. The ticket to achieving these lofty goals? Enrolling in a summer performing arts program, of course. She’s bound for the wilds of Yorkshire Dales — eerily similar to the windswept moors of Wuthering Heights. Tallulah expects new friends, less parental interference, and lots of drama. Acting? Tights? Moors? Check, check, check. What she doesn’t expect is feeling like a tiny bat’s barging around in her mouth when she has her first snog. Bestselling author Louise Rennison returns with her trademark wit, a hilarious new cast, and a brand-new cheeky heroine who is poised to discover plenty of opportunities for (mis)adventure!

About the Author:

Louise Rennison is the internationally bestselling and award-winning author of the angst-filled Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series. She lives in Brighton, the San Francisco of England (apart from the sun, Americans, the Golden Gate Bridge, and earthquakes).

Review:

PRAISE FOR WITHERING TIGHTS: “I don’t know how, but Louise Rennison has done it again. Tallulah is even funnier, warmer, and sweeter than her cousin Georgia Nicolson. I fell in love with Withering Tights, and you will too!” (Meg Cabot, author of The Princess Diaries and Abandon series)

“Louise Rennison has created another superbly realistic and hilarious young teen heroine, a younger Georgia Nicolson, in the first book of a new series. Tallulah’s wry comments on her life and her dreams are sure to enchant girl readers who will laugh and cry with the spunky, hopeful entertainer.” (Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (starred review))

“Tallulah is a vivacious and hilarious character who will speak to every girl. This is a wonderful start to a new series that will attract Georgia’s many fans as well as bring in new readers, who will fall in love with Tallulah and all of her quirks.” (School Library Journal)

“Fans of Georgia Nicolson will be thrilled to meet her cousin Tallulah in Printz Honor-winner Rennison’s new madcap melodrama. Undeniably entertaining; Georgia would be pleased.” (Kirkus)

“Absurdity is a key point here, and it’s richly delivered by Tallulah’s exploits. Ideal for readers seeking a high-spirited silly British romp.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

“Tallulah is an effervescent protagonist who will keep fans of YA Brit lit laughing until the very end.” (Publishers Weekly)

“A bright, breezy, and very funny take on life. Good fun!” (Booklist)

“A jolly and faintly raunchy read.” (Wall Street Journal)

“This Brit lit romp through the moors will leave readers looking forward to next term and more Tallulah.” (The Horn Book)

“Expect lots more of Rennison’s unique brand of teen angst, snogging and shenanigans.” (The Sunday Times)

“Hilarious.” (The Daily Express)

PRAISE FOR THE CONFESSIONS OF GEORGIA NICOLSON: “A little raunchy and quite funny.” (New York Times Book Review on The Confessions of Georgia Nicolson)

“Hysterically funny.” (Seventeen on The Confessions of Georgia Nicolson)

“Hilarious!” (USA Today on The Confessions of Georgia Nicolson)

“We’re talking laugh-till-the-soda-comes-out-your-nose humor.” (Chicago Tribune on The Confessions of Georgia Nicolson)
