This story is the sequel to Withering Tights. As Talluah returns to Dother Hall for the winter term, she ignores Charlie after their incident at the end of book one, as he revealed a secret. Jo finds out some sad news about Phil and his position at Woolfe Academy. Cain still annoys Talluah. The owlets have hatched. Honey has exciting news about her performing arts career. Dother Hall experiences financial difficulties and Tallulah is determined to do well in The Performing Arts College!
Overall, this is a good book and I highly recommend it to fans of the Georgia Nicholson books by the same author. Also the other books in the Talluah Casey triology, Withering Tights and The Taming of the Tights!
I have to confess that Tallulah pales into insignificance against the wonders that were the doings of Georgia, but if Rennison isn't going to take Georgia anywhere else (I wish she would write grown up Georgia), then we must be thankful for Tallulah and her bonkers doings. I find Tallulah rather derivative. It's much the same story, but with more silly language and a lot more of the dramatic arts.
The best bits of this book are the sections with Dib Dobs and the twins. I love the way the twins say; 'Shush lady!' at their mother, because that's how my middle daughter used to talk to us, and it makes me snort with laughter to see those kinds of familiar conversations written down.
In this book, Tallulah continues to fail to understand boys. Her corkers grow a bit more corkery, and she gets very excited about trying to rectify the disaster that was the Sugar Plum Bikey performance of her last term at Dother Hall.
I really loved the Georgia Nicolson series and Withering Tights so I just couldnt wait to start this one. It didn't disapoint at all. It made me laugh just as much as ever, though there were times when i really did feel sorry for Tallulah and her friends. Honey gets offered a Job in Hollywood and Dother hall is under threat of closing and Tallulah has to play a part as Bottom in a play to raise money. Phil is sent off to another school because his behaviors got better and Jo is upset all the time. Most of the book is funny and upbeat though, with Tallulah finding out Alex has a girlfriend and then Charlie really does like her, and Tallulah sort of ending up liking Cain afterall.
I cant wait until the next book, because the last page really makes you wish you knew what was going to happen next. It was a great book and I wish the next one came out sooner.
