Kiely from Year 7, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

The book is about a girl called Talluah Casey and she has
always wanted a dream snog. But will her tights lead her
astray?
It was amazingly funy and the book was really good to get into
quickly. It was a really good comedy, and a very good read.
Tallulah Casey is my favourite character because she is funny
and has a big dream ahead of her . I disliked a bit of the book
because her dream snog lasted too long and it got a bit boring
. I would recommend this book because it is funny and full of
comedy and the book is full of adventures.

Abby S from Year 10, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

This book is about a teenage aspiring actress called Tallulah
Casey. She goes to a special performing arts college in
Yorkshire called Dother Hall. The story is mainly about acting,
dancing, friendships, boys, owls and snogging. Tallulah has a
problem. Well, several problems; Cain the bad, Alex the good,
Charlie (who just wants to be friends), her gangly legs and her
knees. In the book (written from Tallulah’s point of view)
Tallulah and her friends; Flossie, Honey, Vaisey and Jo,
struggle through the school (that is falling apart and
struggling with monetary issues) and deal with each of their
boy problems. Along with the fact that Dr Lightowler hates
Tallulah and loves to make her life a misery. Plus the local
girls are getting angry because the performing arts girls are
stealing all their boys.
I really enjoyed this book, it was hilarious. I even laughed
out loud at some points! The portrayal of the teenage girl is
very good (even if it has some rather odd twists) and the whole
book is wonderfully quirky and original.
I read the first one and couldn't wait to read this one. It
was fabulous, just as I expected. Now I have to wait for the
third book in 2013! I’m excited already.
I recommend this book to girls in Year 7 or older because
it’s great and easy read.
Really funny and awesome.

I couldn't get into this book. It isn't a book that I would
pick. It's about Tallulah Casey and she wants a dream snog and
the golden slippers.

Katie from Year 8, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

This book is a very different. Its all about a girl called
Talluah Casey and she wants a dream snog. She snogs her
boyfriend. But her boyfriend only whats to be friends and
Taullah is in trouble
This book went on for some time about the dream snog andI
did'nt really get the book. This book would be a really good
story for someone who whats to read a comedy adventure all bout
snogging.

I didn't enjoy this book at all. i found it boring and i just
couldn't get into it. i love reading and know if a book is good
because i can get into them straight away but this book i could
not get into it. it was boring and just went on and on at the

Holly from Year 7, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

I didnt really enjoy this book as it isnt the type of book I
would normally read, dont get me wrong it is good, but nto to
my taste. Its about a girl called Talluah Casey who really
wants the best snog ever and the grand pair of golden slippers.

Katie from Year 9, Ridgewood School:

This book is about Tallulah Casey. She is an ordinary (well,
except form her massive knee's!) teenager, waiting for her
dream snog. After her first snog (In the first book with Ben,
who apparently was like a vampire bat, but that’s another
story) and her second (In the first book with Charlie, who's
was perfect, but then he said: I've got a girlfriend) Tallulah
hopes for a third, perfect snog that MEANS something. But when
she does have her third snog, it’s not exactly what she
planned...

Tallulah is on her first full term at Dother Hall, (aka. Dither
hall) and wonders how she got in. But she may soon be out, as
Dother Hall has money problems. With the departure of a dear
friend, will Tallulah cope?

I absolutely loved this book. I liked the way that one thing
leads to another, and also how the story develops. The book is
written in such a perfect style that relates so much to
teenagers, and her thoughts and feelings are often similar to
mine! I love the way the chapters are structured, and how each
ends in a feeling of dread, excitement or confusion. I was
hoping this book would be on the DBA, purely so I could tell
others how FAB it is. I could write pages, gushing on about
this book.

My favourite characters are all the tree sisters. I love the
things they get up to, and the sad departure of (spoiler alert)
Honey. It is funny how much they can relate to each other,
despite being completely different to each other. The Dobbins
are also hilarious, especially Dib Dobs. Her trying to control
the twins-absolute writing gold!

I would thoroughly recommend this book to any teen who needs
some cheering up- or just a laugh!

yasmin from Year 7, Don Valley Academy and Performing Arts College:

This book is about a girl called Tallulah Casey who dreams of a
perfect kiss. I didn't like this book because it took me a long
time to get into it. I wouldn't read it again because it was a
bit boring
