The Taming of the Tights,
by Louise Rennison (HarperCollins, RRP $26):

This completes a trilogy about the narrator Tallulah Casey, following Withering Tights and A Midsummer Tights Dream.

Lullah attends some sort of drama school in the small village of Heckmondwike near Skipley in Yorkshire.

I’m not sure about the significance of the name of the school, Dother Hall, but it does sound rather Dickensian. Lullah and her friends are at the boy crazy stage and aiming for number six on the Lulu-luuuve List.

No worries, there are a few wild village lads about as well as a whole school for delinquent young men on the other side of the forest.

Louise Rennison seems to be a highly critically acclaimed author and has even been dubbed “the queen of comedy”.

The Tallulah Casey books are a spin off from her Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series, of which there are 10 volumes.

Lullah is a younger cousin of Georgia.

I found it a difficult read to get into but in the end was cheering for Lullah.

She’s a mad, crazy, loveable heroine.

I recommend starting with the first one though.
