Get It: Book Depository
I picked the British cover because I thought it was so cute! And I've read Louise Rennison's Georgia series (it holds a special place in my heart, and I love them so much). So I found this whole series at the library (before I left for Florida) and got them all. I got through the first two and a half before I had to turn them back in because I was leaving.
They were younger than I expected they would be, but it was still so funny to get a first-hand account of how to make one's corkers (boobs) larger and the spastic dancing around the tree. Rennison delivered once again with a hilariously written book series, and I was never once bored while reading.
The best part about the books are the world-building and character development. All the characters were so realistic, I could easily relate to them and believe they were truly romping around the forest behaving like lunatics. I also loved that Tallulah was not necessarily the most talented in the bunch, she was known for her comedy mustache (courtesy of her cousin Georgia) and falling at inappropriate times. It was a wonderful representation of how literally all 14-year-olds feel, and even as she got older in the following books, she still was awkward and clumsy and very real for a book character.
Read When: You're looking for a laugh. Like, a real, genuine, belly laugh from some ridiculous characters and plot lines. But they'll leave you wanting more.
