Wow. This is it. This is me growing up. On my own, going to Performing Arts College. This is good-bye, Tallulah, you long, gangly thing, and helloooooo, Lullah, star of stage.
Tallulah Casey is ready to find her inner artist. And some new mates. And maybe a boy or two or three. She’s bound for a performing arts program in the wilds of the Yorkshire Dales–eerily similar to the windswept moors of “Wuthering Heights.”
Acting? Tights? Moors? Check, check, check.
Louise Rennison returns with her trademark wit, a hilarious new cast, and a heroine who is poised to discover plenty of opportunities for (mis)adventure.
As always Rennison has delivered us a book of pure comedy. I love the way that Tullulah is related to a popular character in Rennison’s old series therefore explaining some of her unusual madness. This book is a quick and easy read but so underrated in being one of the funniest series I have read! Tullulah is completely mad and quirky making for a brilliant protagonist. I am completely on team Cane with this one (Alex is too unappreciative to Tullulah), only marking this book down one star for the lack of romance scenes involving him! We all love a good forbidden romance! The ‘Save the school’ plot was very interesting and as allways Tullulah’s problem with spontanious Irish dancing had me in stiches! A book of pure comedy genius, If you need a laugh look no further.
“Mr. Darcy was in Pride and Prejudice and at first he was all snooty and huffy; then he fell in a lake and came out with his shirt all wet. And then we all loved him. In a swoony way.”
“Heathcliff. The “hero” of Wuthering Heights. Although no one knows why.
He’s mean, moody, and possibly a bit on the pongy side. Cathy loves him, though. She shows this by viciously rejecting him and marrying someone else for a laugh. Still, that is true love on the moors for you.”
“I am not an ice cream come! I am a human being!”
