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, the theatre!!




Oh my, how I loved this book. You've all heard of Louise Rennison, you know, Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging, it was a film, you know it. Anyway, it's not necessarily a new series, but it's absolutely fab.

Tallulah is a fourteen and a half year old who was accepted into a performing arts summer school. Dother Hall, or as the locals call it "Dither Hall." But anyway, she ends up staying with a kooky family called the Dobbins, and living in the quaint little town of Heckmondwhite. Well, maybe it isn't what you would call quaint.

This book is absolutely hilarious. Tallulah, as a character is just amazing. She is so relateable, especially seeing as I'm at the age that she's supposed to be. But in all honesty, she reminds me of my best friend, which made the book even better.

The story is all about how Tallulah meets lots of new friends at her new school. There's Honey, Vaisey, Jo and Flossie. And they're all boy crazy. The only problem was that the school was an all girls. Soon, they found out about the neighboring boys' school, and with that came magic and mayhem. This is so well written and thought out, and just full of laughs and lols.

I love love love the characters in this book, they're all so quirky and unique and they just seem so fun to be around. I just Louise Rennison! Her characters are always so well developed!

All in all, I LOVED this book. Although it is targeted at younger readers, it doesn't make it any less hilarious, and if you can get your hands on a copy, definitely give it a read, you will not regret it!
