Wow. This is it. This is me growing up. On my own, going to Performing Arts College. This is good-bye, Tallulah, you long, gangly thing, and hellooooo, Lullah, star of stage.

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!

Cute and funny, but meant for a younger audience than I expected. The slang was a little annoying- sometimes it was funny, but often I simply didn't get what was going on. I'd maybe recommend this to a middle schooler who enjoys quirky humor.

I agree with lotte4242, I have not read this book yet but I think it looks great for teenagers!!!

Edited 1 week later:
I have finished this book and I ABSOLUTLY LOVED IT! I smiled like the whole way through it because it is sooo funny. I would recomend it to any teenager girl (aged 13 and over)!

Tallulah is a gawky teen but probably not as awkward as she feels she is. A younger friend of Georgia Nicolson, who is now older, she goes to a theatre school in Yorkshire. The interesting slang in this new series is from that part of England. Lots of laughs here, but I still prefer Renniston's earlier works.
