More About the Author

Louise Rennison lives in Brighton, a place that she likes to think of as the San Francisco of the south coast. Which is sad as it is nothing like San Francisco, being mainly pebbles and large people in tiny swimming knickers who have gone bright red in the sun. Although she lives in Brighton in reality, in her mind she lives somewhere exotic with a manservant called Juan.

Product Description

Amazon Review

The further fabbitty fab confessions of Georgia Nicolson, as recounted to an adoring, expectant reading public by top teen writing queen Louise Rennison, has been two years in the making and much anticipated. The fifth book in the series, …And that’s when it fell off in my hand, is every bit as cool and laugh-out-loud funny as those before it. Phew. Imagine if it’d been crap? It would have been a huge, huge disaster.

Georgia, boyfriendless now that Robbie the Sex God has gone off to New Zealand is, according to her best mate Jas, upset, and all lonely, with no one to really care about her, the days stretching ahead without any meaning. But Georgia doesn’t remain broken-hearted for long. Suddenly she has things filling up her days like frequent snogging extravaganzas with old flame, Dave the Laugh, who gives her the Mega Horn, and having to cope with the arrival of jelloid-knee-inducing Italian stallion, Masimo, and putting down the thoroughly unwanted attentions of Mark Big Gob. Robbie who?

It’s difficult to fault Rennison’s ability to accurately depict the tormented lives of teens today. Georgia is frighteningly typical, if a little over-dramatic, and her antics are gloriously topical. There’s a laugh a line and getting this funny on every page is very hard indeed.

It’s great to see Rennison’s new UK publishers have adopted the convention used in the American editions of these books, by adding a glossary of all the terms used by the author that might need some clarification for the less with-it readers dropping in. The definitions of words like ‘smalls’ (an ironic terms for underpants), ‘pash’ (passion) and ‘nunga-nungas’ (Girl’s breasty business) are truly hilarious and are worth the cover price alone. These books are totally essential teen reading. Do not delay…(Age 12 and over) --John McLay

"Hilarious… [Louise Rennison] is queen of the pink-book pack." The Times

"Rennison at her best." Waterstone's Quarterly

“Don’t miss this gem” The Guardian

Praise for other “Georgia titles:

“Hilarious. Georgia Nicolson’s laugh-a-minute narration picks up right where Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging left off.” Publishers weekly (starred review)

“For those who already know and love Georgia, there’s only one word necessary: more.” Kirkus Reviews

I read this book in a day! I couldn't put it down for one minute! It makes me laugh the way Georgia is so true to life and how she comes out with the most hilarious things in the world but she acts as if it's what she has to go through everyday! I think she is really mature and she tries to get all her friends like her but they're not having it! There are 3 words to say about this book...I love it!

i have got to say, the fanados of georgia nicholson have me and my friends in hysterics. im sure that any fun teenager can relate to her antics, what with the red-bottomisity and every friendship has their own "radio Jas".
recommended that you read the other 4 1st though, otherwise you'll be wondering 'what in the name of santas elfin m8s nobby n les is she on about??!!'.
exactly.
all in all, once accostome to her fab phrases, there'll be nervy b's all round as you follow her crazy adventures after entrancing the italian stallion Masimo (ohhh yes, he sounds hot) and escaping wet lindsay and slim for the umpteenth time.
a must for any teenager's life - it makes high school seem much more fun with a good dose of the georgia nicholson series by louise rennison. she is extremely "amusant"
cant wait for the 6th book!

Oh my gosh! How marvy and fab is this book! So great for all girls, and grannies, but be warned: do not read this on the train/bus, as people will think you are a loon for laughing outloud. Seriously good, had me in nervy spazes from cover to cover. Buy it or suffer God's wrath.

And that's when it fell of in my hand is a brilliant book and follows Georgia Nicolson. Georgia has three boys to try and decide between. This book has just as many laughs as the previous three although you really need to read them all quite soon after each other to get a proper grasp of the story. I think the book was a bit too short and possibly not quite so good as the last three books. I would recommend it to those of 13+.
