Synopsis

The Taming of the Tights by Louise Rennison

The tights run wild and free in this hilarious new novel from the Queen of Comedy! Tallulah Casey is putting all thoughts of wild boy Cain behind her. He is literally an animal in trousers...oo-er. Not like nice boy Charlie (who she's totally not thinking about either). The Tree Sisters are chasing those golden slippers of applause at performing arts college but Dr Lightowler seems hell-bent on spoiling everything for Tallulah. And with all her mates loved up, can Tallulah resist the call of her wild boy?

Reviews

Praise for Midsummer Tights Dream:

Girls will relish the breakneck plot, inventive language and knockabout comedy. Guardian

This is a tears-running-down-your-face-in-sheer-joy type of read Sugarscape

Praise for 'Withering Tights':

Wickedly entertaining. - Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian

I don't know how, but Louise Rennison has done it again. Tallulah is even funnier, warmer, and sweeter than her cousin Georgia Nicolson. I fell in love with Withering Tights, and you will too! - Meg Cabot, author of The Princess Diaries and Abandon series

Praise for Confessions of Georgia Nicolson:

Raucously fun. - The Times

About the Author

Louise Rennison

Louise Rennison (1951 – 2016) A hugely popular writer and comedian, who wrote brilliantly funny stories for teenage girls including the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series, the first of which was made into a successful movie.

When Louise was 15, her parents decided to emigrate to Wairakei in New Zealand. Its main claim to fame is that it had some of the most violent geothermal activity in the world. "When we had Sunday lunch in the back garden, the tables heaved and lurched around, and the trees went backwards and forwards. That was because underneath the table, underneath the earth's surface, thousands of cubic feet of molten steam was trying to get out … and kill us!" Louise's dad had his shoes blown off by a rogue bore.

Louise's research for her books required many hours hanging around with 14-year-olds which is, as she said, "Brilliant - the best fun known to humanity. It's all boys, make-up, laughing and, er, that's it.”
