Winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2010 – The first book in the hilarious series from the original Queen of Teen. You’ll laugh your tights off . . .
Picture the scene:Dother Hall Performing Arts College ,somewhere Up North, surrounded by rolling dales, bearded cheesemaking villagers (male and female) and wildlife of the squirrely-type.
On the whole, it’s not quite the showbiz experience Tallulah was expecting… but once her mates turn -p and they start their ‘FAME! I’m gonna liiiiive foreeeeeever, I’m gonna fill my tiiiiights’ summer course things are bound to perk up. Especially when the boys arrive. (When DO the boys arrive?)
Six weeks of parent-free freedom. BOY freedom. Freedom of expression… cos it’s the THEATRE dahling, theatre!
The hilarious misadventures of Tallulah Casey…

“It’s all a hoot.” – Nicolette Jones, Sunday Times
Praise for Confessions of Georgia Nicolson:

About the author
Louise Rennisonwas a journalist, comedian and beloved author. In 1999, she introduced Georgia Nicolson to the world with ANGUS THONGS & FULL-FRONTAL SNOGGING– the first in a 10-book series. The book won the Nestlé Smarties Book Prize Bronze Award and was adapted for film in 2008. In the same year, Louise was crowned Queen of Teen for the series, and in 2010, was awarded the Roald Dahl Funny Prize for WITHERING TIGHTS– the first in a spin-off following the hysterical misadventures of Georgia’s cousin, Tallulah.
Sadly, Louise passed away in 2016 at 64-years-young. She left behind a legion of adoring readers who hold Georgia and the Ace Gang close to their hearts. Her books have been translated into 37 languages and have sold more than 2.6 million copies in the UK. Louise lives on through her cherished character Georgia – who was based on her own teen experiences. In Louise’s and Georgia’s own words: “He who laughs last, laughs the laughiest.”
Rennison (the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson books) is back with a new series, this time featuring 14 -year-old Tallulah Casey, a self-deprecating and boy-crazy aspiring actress, as well as in typical Rennison fashion a spunky comedian. (Oh, and she's Georgia's cousin, too.) Tallulah heads off to Dother Hall in Yorkshire, a school for the performing arts, to pursue a life on the stage, and it won't take readers long to note that her personality is perfect for the profession. With entertaining scenarios in spades (Tallulah's home-stay family lodges her in what she regularly refers to as "the squirrel room," for instance), a cast of winning new girlfriends, and cute boys everywhere they turn, Tallulah and company work through the trials of adolescence and the mysteries of first romance. British slang is abundant (lots of "snogging," of course, but also less familiar terms like "smalls"). If the nonstop jokes and silliness can become a bit much at times, Tallulah is an effervescent protagonist who will keep fans of YA Brit lit laughing until the very end. Ages 12 up.
