9780007218677: Angus, thongs and full-frontal snogging (Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, Book 1)

Brilliantly funny, teenage angst author Louise Rennison’s first book about the confessions of crazy but lovable Georgia Nicolson. Now repackaged in a gorgeous new paperback and looking even fabber than ever. Louise is an international bestselling author and her books can’t fail to make you laugh out loud.

There are six things very wrong with my life:

1. I have one of those under-the-skin spots that will never come to a head but lurk in a red way for the next two years.
2. It is on my nose.
3. I have a three-year-old sister who may have peed somewhere in my room.
4. In fourteen days the summer hols will be over and then it will be back to Stalag 14 and Oberführer Frau Simpson and her bunch of sadistic 'teachers'.
5. I am very ugly and need to go into an ugly home.
6. I went to a party dressed as a stuffed olive.

Follow Georgia's hilarious antics as she tries to overcome the dilemma’s that are weighing up against her, and muddle her way through teenage life and all that it entails: how to replace accidentally shaved-off eyebrows; how to cope with Angus, her small labrador-sized Scottish wildcat; her first kiss with Peter – afterwards known as Whelk Boy; annoying teachers; unsympathetic friends and family, and how to entice Robbie the Sex God! Phew – she’s really got her work cut out!

Review:

It is bad enough trying to cope with being a teenager, Georgia Nicolson's problems go way beyond the average in Louise Rennison's debut novel for children--a kind of Bridget Jones does "Top Shop" and just as funny.

Georgia relates her tales of love, life and full frontal snogging through her diary, a format that in this case works like a dream. Georgia not only has to cope with the hormonal roller coaster that refuses to stop, but fears that she might be a lesbian and her dad might be a transvestite. Of course, Georgia is seeing the world through her naive eyes and seems to get every situation hopelessly wrong--not so good for her but great for the reader who is treated to an hilarious account of a few months in the life of typical teenager.

Rennison's prose crackles with energy and enthusiasm and her voice is so painfully authentic that at times you feel almost guilty, as if you are secretly peering into the pages of a real person's diary. But it is the author's razor sharp humour that will keep you hooked and, at times, virtually crying with laughter as Georgia stumbles from one mid-teen crisis to the next, such as an unfortunate incident with a pair of tweezers and some eye liner pencil. Her cringe-inducing encounters with boys, especially her over-friendly cousin, cause just as many problems as what she should do with her hands while engaging in a heavy kissing session.

Angus, Things and Full-Frontal Snogging is a smart, sharp and very funny book, superbly written and acutely observed--please Ms Rennison, can we have some more? (Age 12 and over) --Jonathan Weir
