Overview

Teens who adore Louise Rennison's heroine Georgia Nicolson will love her cousin Tallulah Casey even more! Meg Cabot, New York Times bestselling author of the Princess Diaries series, raved, "Tallulah is even funnier, warmer, and sweeter than her cousin Georgia Nicolson."

In The Taming of the Tights, the third book in the (Mis)Adventures of Tallulah Casey series, Tallulah and her mates are back to finish their winter term at the Dother Hall performing arts program. And Tallulah is determined to finally show the world she's a true star of the stage!

Out of the spotlight, Tallulah's life is filled with just as much drama. She's distracted by bad-boy Cain and trying her best to keep her accidental snog-session with him a secret. And although she is slowly beginning to think that maybe he's not so bad after all, she also continues to wonder about unavailable Charlie and dreamy Alex. Who would make the perfect leading man?

PRAISE FOR THE (MIS)ADVENTURES OF TALLULAH CASEY SERIES:“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!”
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.”

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.”

“This Brit lit romp through the moors will leave readers looking forward to next term and more Tallulah.”
The Horn Book on A Midsummer Tights Dream
“It wouldn’t be a Rennison book without plenty of humor, self-deprecation, and literary and musical references. Lullah’s adoring fans will not be disappointed by this entertaining ride on “the showbiz express.”

Gr 9 Up—In this fun and quirky installment in the series, Georgia Nicolson's 15-year-old Irish cousin, Tallulah Casey, is about to begin her third term at a performing arts college in England. She is excited to be reunited with her friends, the Tree Sisters, and hopefully bump into Charlie-the cute boy with the "tiny girlfriend" who she snogged not too long ago. And of course there's bad-boy Cain, the Dark Black Crow of Heckmondwhite, who Tallulah swears she won't have anything to do with after having her first proper snog with him out on the moors. But trouble abounds once school starts, as her teacher, Dr. Lightowler, is out to get her yet again and Cain won't stop getting in Tallulah's way of finding her first real boyfriend. Told in the entertaining style that readers have come to love, Rennison's story is sure to guarantee more than a few laughs. While the pacing is a bit slow in the middle, girls will find themselves pushing through to the end, eager to see how Tallulah works herself out of predicament after predicament. It is not necessary to have read the first two books to enjoy this one. Fans of the "Confessions of Georgia Nicolson" series (HarperCollins) are sure to fall in love with Tallulah and her crazy antics, and will be eager to devour her next misadventure.—Candyce Pruitt-Goddard, Hartford Public Library, CT
