Comments for Withering Tights

Withering Tights: 04/17/13

 cover art (Link goes to Powells)When I finished Are These My Bassoomas I See Before Me? by Louise Rennison, I was feeling a pang of sadness at the ending of a fun series. It was time, though, for the series to end. Georgia had matured and her story had made its natural course.

Louise Rennison has a new series, the first of which is Withering Tights. Tallulah Casey is traveling somewhere "up north" to Dother Hall for theater school. She's excited and scared but she's going with sage advice from her cousin (Georgia).

Tallulah is a couple years younger than Georgia but not as young as she was in Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging. She's somewhere in the middle, meaning she's full on boy crazy and a full on spazz. Now if these two girls were unrelated, I'd probably be wishing for a completely different voice for Tallulah. As they're cousins, their similarities is understandable and funny.

I found it a quick and funny read. Tallulah trying to fit in with the theater crowd and make her mark was endearing and believable.

The sequel is A Midsummer's Tights Dream — and I will be posting a review of it soon.

Five stars
