Withering Tights, Paperback
3 out of 5 (1 rating)


Winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2010! The misadventures of Tallulah Casey...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!!

Review by

By the same author of Angus, Thongs, and Perfect Snogging comes a new series about Tallulah, Georgia's cousin. In this book Tallulah goes to a theater camp over the summer and becomes engaged in typical teen drama. The main character is awkward and slightly insecure but very relatable to. In my opinion the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series was better than this series, but it was still a pretty good book. The beginning is quite slow but it gets better towards the end. I would recommend this book for any one 12-16. I know there are three books to this series as of now and I'm wondering how they compare to they compare to the first book. From this website each book after had a higher rating so I am thinking the series gets better.

Also in the The Misadventures of Tallulah Casey series
