Tallulah Casey is ready to find her inner artist. And some new mates. And maybe a boy or two or three.
The ticket to achieving these lofty dreams? Enrolling in a summer preforming arts program, of course. She's bound for the wilds of Yorkshire Dales--eerily similar to the windswept moors of Wuthering Heights. Tallulah expects new friends, less parental interference and lots of drama. Acting? Tights? Moors? Check, check, check.
What she doesn't expect is feeling like a tiny bat's banging around in her mouth when she has her first snog.
Bestselling author Louise Rennison returns with her trademark wit, a hilarious new cast, and a brand new cheeky heroine who is poised to discover plenty of opportunities for (mis)adventure.
I have to admit that I absolutely hated this book when I started it. The plot seemed stupid, the characters and the storyline didn't make sense. But, this book grew on me over time, because I refused to quit. I had to the gist of it first.
I learned to love the characters and plot, because it was all so cute when it came together. Tallulah is very insane, but that's was makes her funny and what makes this book good. She is a certain type of insane, but somebody you can get used to if you are like her. I guess the only thing I have to not like about the characters is the fact of how confusing they all got to be. They sort of mashed together, so when Tallulah was with one of them, I had to look back and see who was who.
The plot was fairly well written. I didn't love it, didn't hate it. I'm guessing it was because the setting of this book was in Yorkshire.
Terribly sorry that is so short, but I can't think of anything else to say. Plus, I'm having my birthday party tonight so I gotta run!
