Louise Rennison’s first Georgia book (Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging) knocked me out, but the subsequent books didn’t live up to the expectations I had after that first excellent book. I hoped that starting a new series with Georgia’s cousin would revitalize Rennison’s ideas, but Withering Tights was only mediocre. That’s not to say it wasn’t amusing at times or that I didn’t enjoy some of Tallulah’s crazy adventures during a summer at a performing arts school, but there wasn’t anything to the plot that made Withering Tights stand out against any number of Young Adult books. For those familiar with the Georgia books, this is the same old crazy language mixed with insecurities about appearance and mad crushes on boys.
