When Tallulah Casey heads off to summer drama camp, she knows she'll make it on the stage. She didn't count on staying off campus in the squirrel room, and she didn't count on Cain constantly making outnwith random girls under her window, and she didn't count on the pub owner's daughter, Ruth, taking a shine to her. As the term professes, Tallulah learns just what it means to live in the Yorkshire moors, with sheep and grumpy old men everywhere. She's determined to succeed in show business, even with knobby knees and too long legs and a distinct lack of corkers! Rennison sticks to the uncanny ability to get inside the teen girl mindset and bring every awkward moment to light. From Tallulah's fear over her underdeveloped appearance to the tension between bad boys ands nice boys, to the bonds of friendship forged through awkwardness, the dialogue and emotion sparkles. Wacky doesn't't fully describe the host of secondary characters, but at least gets into the ballpark. Superb all the way around! - CS
