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
