Tallulah (A Midsummer Tights Dream) and the Tree Sisters are back for another term at performing arts college where they comically reinterpret another Shakespeare play. But drama follows Tallulah offstage as she debates who is better boyfriend material: Cain or Charlie. Though the book is light on plot, readers will welcome the return of Tallulah's humorous musings and this distinctly British, quirky cast of characters. Glos.

Gr 9 Up—In this fun and quirky installment in the series, Georgia Nicolson's 15-year-old Irish cousin, Tallulah Casey, is about to begin her third term at a performing arts college in England. She is excited to be reunited with her friends, the Tree Sisters, and hopefully bump into Charlie-the cute boy with the "tiny girlfriend" who she snogged not too long ago. And of course there's bad-boy Cain, the Dark Black Crow of Heckmondwhite, who Tallulah swears she won't have anything to do with after having her first proper snog with him out on the moors. But trouble abounds once school starts, as her teacher, Dr. Lightowler, is out to get her yet again and Cain won't stop getting in Tallulah's way of finding her first real boyfriend. Told in the entertaining style that readers have come to love, Rennison's story is sure to guarantee more than a few laughs. While the pacing is a bit slow in the middle, girls will find themselves pushing through to the end, eager to see how Tallulah works herself out of predicament after predicament. It is not necessary to have read the first two books to enjoy this one. Fans of the "Confessions of Georgia Nicolson" series (HarperCollins) are sure to fall in love with Tallulah and her crazy antics, and will be eager to devour her next misadventure.—Candyce Pruitt-Goddard, Hartford Public Library, CT
