Product Description

Amazon Review

What a life poor Georgia Nicolson leads! For a start her mother, in between squeezing into tight crop tops and thrusting her bazoomas at the hunky George-Clooney-lookalike doctor, is trying to drag Gerogia off to New Zealand. But how can she go to New Zealand when there's a sex god (SG) to snog and the persistent lesbian rumours to fend off? After discovering "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus", Georgia and her friend Jas have constructed a clever way of getting SG back from Wet Lindsay. Neither are quite sure how it works, but it involves boys stretching like elastic bands (or something) and using Laughing Dave as a Red Herring. Add the psychotic cat Angus into the mix, a liberal helping of hyperactive sister Libby and a truly bizarre roll call of teachers and it's no wonder Georgia has turned to Buddhism (but it's so hard to be a Buddhist when Mr Next Door keeps wandering around in his shorts and distracting her). Georgia Nicolson is one of the funniest comic creations in children's fiction and Ms Rennison has dreamt up another fantastically funny outing for this loveable teenage girl. Her voice is constantly authentic throughout as she blunders her way through personal trauma after personal trauma, dealt with her in her own inimitable and hilarious style.

This a welcome follow-up to Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging; all the major players are back and on top form and Rennison gives us plenty of new characters to plague and torment. Georgia's friendship with best mate Jas is painfully funny and deeply felt and, despite the fact that they fall out every two seconds, their love for each other is obvious. In short, this is probably the funniest read of the year. Move over Adrian Mole--your competition has well and truly arrived. --Jonathan Weir

Tres, tres amusant!! Almost as side-splittingly hilarious as 'Angus, Thongs And Full-Frontal Snogging'!
The talented Louise Rennison does it again with this fabitty-fab sequal. It's guarenteed to have even the moodiest of teenagers laughing like loons on loon tablets!!!
I found I could relate to so many of Gorgia's situations and escapades. It's such a compelling book- once I started reading it, I found I couldn't put it down!
I'd recommend it to any teenager with a sense of humour. Georgia, her amusing Fab Gang and the dreamy Sex God will brighten up even the dullest of dull days!!

This book is way too wonderful for it to go by without a second glance. Like the other two books Louise Renninson has wrote this is equally as fabulous! You follow an ordinary girl through the not so ordinary world that is her life. If you don't laugh at this ,the person reading over your shoulder will. Louise is very very very very funny and you will enjoy reading the credits at the front of the book as much as you wil reading the actual book. Georgia is every thing she want's to be or at least if she paused for a while she would realise that she is. You will laugh so hard at her attempts to get the guy of her dreams and if the next book is not at hand you may start to cry. A must do for every growing girl and those nebby parents who want to know why their daughter is laughing so much.(My Mum enjoyed it!)

This is a great book and here is why:This book had my stuck reading for two hours solid. So beware, if you like light reading you could get rolled into reading more than you intended. As a younger person myself i found this really funny. On everything that the book described i could relate too. It is very mildly rude but not too overwhelming just like real life. It shows all teenage problems and it feels like it is a person there talking to you not an author written the book. If you are a teenager you should read this. All three books Angus thongs and full frontall snogging, It's ok i'm wearing really big knickers and knocked out by my nunga nungas get better in every book. And for parents. I can asure you it is safe and there is nothing in there that over 11 years old won't know about. I just hope that Louise Rennison writes more books!

All I can say is that I loved this book. I would almost look forward to going to bed at night just so I could read for hours on end. I would laugh out loud in the middle of the night like a loon. I could totally relate to Georgia and all of the troubles she was going through. I told all my friends about this book and they adored it just as much as me. The book made me much happier and had me in side splitting hysterics. I was totally hooked on this book and would reccomend it to anyone who asked (and anyone who didn't).

...I adored the first book and now I have the chance to read the second. I must say I was not disapointed. I, myself am a teenager and know exactly how Georgia feels, apart from the fact my parents didnt try to make me go to kiwi-a-gogo land. In this book she goes out with the sex god (SG) twice and a bloke called Dave the Laugh who she uses as a Red Herring(see the book for details) a must read.

"It's OK, I'm Wearing Really Big Knickers!" aka "On the Bright Side, I'm Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God" in the US is a great book for a laugh. Being close to the main character's age, i can sympathize with her, as well as laugh at all the funny scrapes she gets herself into. It's a good book for teenage girls fed up with their parents' ignorance of the teenage life.

Move over Bridget Jones and step aside Adrian Mole, because anyone who’s ever been a teenager will be chortling to these hilarious award-winning diaries of Georgia Nicholson. This gregarious girl’s confessions make some of the most honestly funny reading published for teenagers (and those of us just a ‘tad’ older, well, young enough to remember those angst-ridden years!) Both books, (spanning a single year each), and part of a collection of four, capture the frustrations and flirtations of those torturous teenage years with so much hilarity and at such a fast pace that you’re left breathless by the time you reach the end of the book.
Georgia has all the usual problems – a stubborn spot on her nose, sadistic teachers, an incontinent younger sister and an uncontrollable pet Scottish wildcat (alias Angus). Her parents might be splitting up or shipping them all out to ‘Kiwi-a-gogo land’ (New Zealand) and she still doesn’t know how to kiss properly. She recounts these traumas with a sense of irony and deadpan wit. This muddle-headed, drama teen-queen had me giggling out loud. I could feel myself blush aimlessly and cringing with recognition to similar emotions and events that were, at the time, the only reason for living and breathing – boys and make-up - and stopping at nothing to claim that ‘gorgey’ sex god. Thank God I have acquired a certain dignity and decorum now beyond those early attempts of desperation. In other words, I’ve found that devilish partner-in-crime and am doing the time. Mind you, he wouldn’t notice if I shaved off my eyebrows and took up wearing leg warmers again. (It was the mid-eighties - the years not degrees).
