Overview

Louise Rennison, nationally bestselling author of the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series, returns with another hilarious adventure starring Georgia’s cousin Tallulah Casey.
 
In A Midsummer Tights Dream, Tallulah’s second great (mis)adventure, things are starting to look up for the budding star. She has been officially admitted to the Dother Hall performing arts program in Yorkshire. Her corkers have done some developing since last term. And she’s picked up some advice on snogging from dear old Georgia. So she’s ready to return to the stage—and face her crushes again.
 
But Tallulah will have more than boy drama to deal with. This term’s project is Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Tallulah has been cast as Bottom, the fool who spends most of the play with the head of a donkey. Even worse, if the show isn’t a complete success, the school won’t have enough money to stay open for another year.

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!”

Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (Starred Review)
“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.”
Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books
“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.”
VOYA - Diane Colson
Tallulah Casey, cousin to Georgia Nicholson of confessional fame, is thrilled to be returning to Drother Hall at the Performing Arts College. Her mates--Vaisey, Flossy, Jo, and Honey--are all back, as are the Woolfe Academy Boys, and the very attractive bad boy Cain Hinchcliff. High-spirited Tallulah is as earnest about her snogging lessons as she is about her acting classes (“BE the sea!”). And yet all is not rum and hailstones. Drother Hall is facing severe financial difficulties and may have to close down. Tallulah’s dream boy has some disappointing news, and one of her mates will be leaving for Hollywood. Fortunately, there is little that can keep our girl down. For readers who have already met Tallulah in the debut novel of The Misadventures of Tallulah Casey series, Withering Tights (HarperTeen, 2011/Voya August 2011), it will be easy to jump right back in the fun. Readers who have not read the first book will likely want to double back and get properly introduced to the large cast of characters. Rennison maintains the high standard of hilarity so beloved in The Confessions of Georgia Nichols series. Recommend this to readers who have an interest in theatre novels such as Carter Finally Gets It (Hyperion, 2009) by Brent Crawford or Suite Scarlett (Point, 2008/Voya August 2008)by Maureen Johnson. Ages 11 to 18.
School Library Journal
Gr 7–10—Knobby-kneed, Irish dancer Tallulah Casey is thrilled to be back for her second term at a performing-arts school and can hardly wait to see her friends and the alluring (but confusing) lads she pined after last term. Tallulah is especially excited about showing off her maturing body (her "corkers" have grown) and utilizing all that she learned about boys from her more experienced cousin Georgia (the all-important "snogging scale"). However she gets more than she bargained for with a letter from her dream boy, trying to be just friends with her former crush, and having her face licked by the rebellious leader of the town's only metal band. On top of all this, Dother Hall may close unless the students raise enough funds to save it, and Tallulah has been passed over for the role of fairy queen and has to play the traditionally donkey-eared Bottom. Readers will enjoy Tallulah's use of hilarious British slang (don't worry, there is a glossary) and her vibrant personality, and off-kilter descriptions perfectly capture the exuberance and awkwardness of early adolescence. The book does have some pacing problems-the first two thirds or so move along slowly and the last few chapters are so action-packed they may induce whiplash-but this will not deter fans of the series or of the Georgia Nicholson books.—Gesse Stark-Smith, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR
