My excuse for having read every single one of Louise Rennison’s books is that one day, when I find an extra hour in my day (ha!), I’d like to write for teen market. So what better way to keep up with what teens are reading than to look at the latest releases, which is how I came to spend my weekend reading Withering Tights.
The book has taken me even further Up North to the Dother Hall Performing Arts College in Yorkshire, where Tallulah Casey is spending her summer learning about stage life, dance, drama and boys.
Life Up North is not quite as Tallulah expects – there is no Sky TV in her little village and nothing that resembles a branch of Top Shop, so it’s skipathons, owl egg watching and comedy Irish dancing all the way.
From make-up experiments to swigging ginger beer and trying to work out how best to talk to members of the opposite sex, Withering Tights is funny, entertaining and will not disappoint Louise Rennison fans.
