Tallulah Casey is putting all thoughts of wild boy Cain behind her. He is literally an animal in trousers… oo-er. Not like nice boy Charlie (who she’s totally not thinking about either). The Tree Sisters are chasing those golden slippers of applause at performing arts college but Dr Lightowler seems hell-bent on spoiling everything for Tallulah. And with all her mates loved up, can Tallulah resist the call of her wild boy? - synopsis from author's website.
The story picks up again with the new term at Dother Hall as Tallulah rejoins her mates, the Tree Sisters, for more adventures. For these to make sense it is best to read from the start of the series where both characters and running jokes are introduced including Tallulah's spontaneous Irish dancing and the owls that feature on the covers.
I am very fond of this series and Louise Rennison's quirky humour. Audio is probably my favourite way of experiencing the novels given Rennison's narration that reduces me to laughter over and over. It isn't an audiobook that I'd listen to in the car as it is far too funny not to be distracting.
Reading the print edition borrowed from the library a few days after listening to the audio allowed me to take another visit to Tallulah's world and also to pick up on some details that I had missed first time round. Overall just a great deal of fun.
