Teaser Tuesday[40]: Withering Tights (Misadventures of Tallulah Casey, #1) by Louise Rennison

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


School! Yay, right? Sure. Whatever. (Hope you have a good day, though!)
I didn’t do nearly enough reading over Spring Break. What about you? (Although, really, there is never enough reading getting done.)
Here’s this week’s book!:
Genre: YA Contemporary, Comedy
Publisher: HarperCollins/Teen
Publish Date: June 2011

Goodreads Synopsis:

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!


“I thought, I can hardly believe that a whole week has gone by.
A whole week since I first came to Dother Hall and nearly a whole day since I’ve seen Alex.” (Hardback, pg. 84)

“Hey and hang on a minute, I think, maybe, when I looked closely I can see little tiny bumps under my T-shirt. Woo-hoo! At this rate I might even be able to buy a bra by the time I am forty. Just in time for my pension.
Still, it’s a start.
Two starts actually.” (Hardback, pg. 85)

Hope you’re having a good day/week, and reading something good either way!
