Review: Withering Tights

Georgia’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 Withering Heights will push her over the edge of consideration for permanent place at the school.

My Thoughts: 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. They both are boy crazy. Tallulah lives with a family that rivals Georgia’s 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.

Cover Thoughts: Cute!

Great review! I've been looking forward to this, and it's good to know it's Georgia all over again. I will make sure to get it from the library instead of buying it...
