A Midsummer Tights Dream by Louise Rennison is the second of the Tallulah Casey books. She's now officially a student at the school of performing arts, but the school is in dire financial need. The school might end up closed at the end of the year.

Tallulah, though young and and silly like her cousin, Georgia, has more opportunities and more drive. She has to make the most of the moment especially with a classmate off to Hollywood and a school that might not last the year.

Oddly, though, the school centered plot hasn't stuck with me as well as any of the Georgia plots. Although I loved reading it and got caught up in the moment, I'm not sure the new series is as re-readable as the original. ( )

Tallulah's adventures pick up where her cousin Georgia's left off. Tallulah is in her 2nd term of a performing arts boarding school and is looking forward to perhaps learning some more as well as getting her "crazy legs' in control. She looks forward to trying to prove her worth as a performer, but sometimes finds it hard when one of her instructors seems to catch her at her worst every time she turns around. She and her friends wish one of their own goodbye and learn that the school is in danger of closing if it doesn't find more funding. Now they have to come up with a performance of a lifetime in hopes of saving the school. ( )

These books are insane but in a good way. Louise Rennison has a knack for making the most ordinary situations seem absurd and hysterically funny. ( )

I read the last book a few years ago (or whenever it came out), ad I love Rennisons work...this was great! ( )

Likes: If Bridget Jones had kept a diary as a teen, this would be it. Plus Tallulah is much nicer to her friends than her cousin Georgia (Rennison's other series). Helpful (albeit somewhat silly) glossary in the back of her slang terms.

Dislikes: I read the first in this series over a year ago, so whenever she would refer to something that happened in that book, I wouldn't remember the details. In other words, you need to read the books in order, and you need to read all of them to know what the characters are talking about.

Readalikes: I haven't read any other humorous British/Irish teen journal-style books other than Rennison's, but there's gotta be something similar out there! ( )
