Withering Tights

At last – Tallulah is living the dream, and going away for six weeks at theatre school over the summer! Except that Dother Hall, in the wilds of the Yorkshire dales, surrounded by bearded cheese-making villagers and wildlife of the squirrely type, is not quite the showbiz experience Tallulah was expecting. But no matter – once her mates turn up and start their “FAME! I’m gonna liiiive foreeeever” summer course, things are bound to perk up. Especially when the boys arrive. (When DO the boys arrive?) Six weeks of parent-free freedom. BOY freedom. Freedom of expression… cos it’s the THEATRE, dahling, after all! From Louise Rennison, the No. 1 Queen of Teen, comes a laugh-out-loud tale of theatrical antics: boys, snogging and bad acting guaranteed. Get ready to laugh your tights off!
