Georgia Nicolson's younger cousin with long legs, knobby knees, and no corkers is off to the Yorkshire moors for the summer at a performing arts school. Tallulah can't wait to show off her stuff. She meets a great group of girls after she does a bit of Irish Dancing during the introductions. Tallulah becomes close to the girls who talk about boys, snogging, and daily drama. Tallulah's nervous that she won't make the summer cut and be invited back to the school for the fall. She can't sing, her dancing tends to be a bit wild, and her acting is suspect. Nevertheless, she's having the time of her life and hopes that the final production of Wuthering Heights will push her over the edge of consideration for a permanent place at the school. Louise Rennison starts out a new series that's quite similar to the CONFESSIONS OF GEORGIA NICOLSON series. Georgia and Tallulah both have body issues, they both have a bunch of great friends, and they both are boy crazy. Tallulah lives with a family that rivals Georgia's own crazy family. The quirky school provides the main difference between the two heroines. While it was a cute and funny read, I wish it had been more different instead of just more of the same.

Wow this book is freaking hilarious. I really do quite enjoy British humor, and was laughing with every page. It does take a good few chapters to really get into it. This story centers on Tallulah Casey, who is the cousin of Georgia Nicolson. (from Louise Rennison's other series) She ends up being accepted into theater camp, at Dother Hall, so she doesn't have to go to regular camp with her little bro and eat "butterfly sandwiches." No serious attachments, just something to do for the summer. She ends up staying with a quirky family from the local town because there wasn't any room left at the college. This family adds a lot of humor to this story. They’ve got 2 crazy little twin boys, who can’t talk well, a mother who is bonkers and a father who is way in touch with his feminine side. She meets other girls and makes fast friends, soon to be known as the "tree sisters." They are a unique bunch of girls. Lullah ends up loving "college" and wants to stay. But her marks aren't good enough and she will have to work her butt off to stay permanently. Lullah is always talking about how she's got to grow into her legs and that she has a lack of "corkers." Like I said before, this is very funny. Her and her friends end up having little adventures and meeting boys and snogging for the first time. It is a quick read and a bit young, but still quite enjoyable. It had a bit of an abrupt ending. I though there were more pages to it, but then it ended. There will be another in the series.

I had read Louise Rennison's other series, the Confessions of Georgia Nicholson, and they were absolutely side-wracking with laughter! I thought that this book would not dissapoint, and I was right. Withering Tights was hilarious!! A must read.

Honestly,at the beginning,it's kinda dull.but,starting from chap 4 (i think),it starts to get pretty awesome.i bet there will a lot of hot boys if they make it into a movie. i think if i was tallulah,i will go for Alex.Second choice,might be Cain even though he's kinda rude but i believe there's something special about him.deep deep inside . Ben,definitely not.this guy got issue cuz he kissed me,then acts like it never happened.Charlie,he's already got a girlfriend.over all,it is a great book.i think i like Tallulah more than Georgia.

I read it because I was desperate. Boredom does that to you. I think I halfheartedly laughed twice the entire book. It was kinda hard for me to understand and the characters didn't really have any really noteworthy traits or personalities.

Just as great as the Georgia series. Highly recommended.

Unlike the reviews I read online at B&N, I never found any humor in this book. It reads like a teen book. I never got past the first few chapters.

3.5 Stars This book is the epitome of light reading. It's very fluffy & full of nonsensical ramblings from the mind of 14-year-old Tallulah. A lot of what she says & does is very silly or just completely over the top. There was very little plot, the story favoring more the idea of cataloging all the happenings to Tallulah & her group of friends as they go to dance school & interact with local boys & boys from another school. I liked the parts of the story that had nothing to do with the boys because I thought the friendships were much more fun to read about than the fawnings over boys who were mostly boring clods who fumbled through their time with the girls like they had no idea how to function properly around so much estrogen. One down side to the narrative was that I found myself wondering sometimes whether or not Tallulah had some kind of mental disorder because a lot of what she thought, said, & did was just so beyond obtuse that it seemed she must be suffering from slight brain damage. Her preoccupation with her breasts, nicknamed "corkers," got very old to the point that I wanted to find a sampling of 14-year-olds & ask them if they were really THAT obsessed with their own breast development to talk, think, & write about them with every other breath. That said though Tallulah & her friends were funny & the teachers were absolutely insane. The book was a fast, easy read. I would recommend to younger adults who enjoyed Louise Rennison's other series with Georgia Nicholson as it's similar. I do not recommend listening to the audio version of this book as I did. The author narrates it herself & so the audio goes from barely audible whispering to high pitched shouting sometimes in the same scene which had me constantly wincing & adjusting the volume.
