Publisher's Summary

The misadventures of Tallulah Casey…the hilarious new series from the Queen of Teen. Laugh your tights off at the (very) amateur dramatic antics of Talullah and her bonkers mates. Boys, snogging and bad acting guaranteed!
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 up, 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!!
