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 hellooooo, 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.

The ticket to achieving these lofty goals? Enrolling in a summer performing 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 barging 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!

Yes, Louise is BBBAAACCCCKKK!!!!!! And with a brand-new series!!! Starring...Tallulah, Georgia's cousin! 

This (the whole family thing) was a bit iffy for me. I mean, YES, I luuurrve Georgia and I really can't get enough of her but...everything was so Georgia!!! Like, am I reading a story about Tallulah or Georgia??? This only happened about four times, but it's still a big question mark for me when I can't differentiate between two characters again and again.

What I'm going to say next might seem contradicting but it TOTALLY is not, so bear with me for a bit. I MISS GEORGIA. Because she was just so hilarious!!! I read her confessions during sixth grade and yes, she was quite...immature (?), but I loved her and I admit, I did wish that this book had a more Georgia vibe. Only for a second though. THEN, I was like, NOOOOO, I want Tallulah to be unique and original. And I think she was...a bit. 

DESPITE all this, I still really liked this book and the hilariousities kept me coming for more. Yes, it was a bit dull at some points, but it was quickly livened up again! If you want funny, LOL, ridiculous moments, YOU HAVE FOUND YOUR BOOK!
