The third in the series by Louise Rennison about the fifteen year old school girl Georgia Nicholson, this is just as good as the previous two. It is in Georgia's words 'vair vair funny' indeed.

Not much has changed. Georgia is still madly in love with Robbie The Sex God and having trouble reconciling it with her desire to snog Dave The Laugh. All is as it should be in the world of teenage angst.

If this was all there was to these books they would be very tiresome by now, but for me it is the ridiculous antics of the Ace Gang at Stalag 14 or school as it is more commonly known, and the lovely relationship she has with her parents who annoy her by refusing to be middle aged and sensible, and her crazy three year old sister Libby.

Oh! and in this book we have the treat of the blossoming romance in the life of the most lunatic and deranged cat in book history, Angus and his dreams of conquering the flirty Burmese Naomi from over the road.

Laugh out loud funny.

'Knocked out by my nunga-nungas'
By Louise Rennison
This is the hilarious diary and thoughts of Georgia Nicolson, a typical teenager who is going through all of the confusion and challenges of boys, school, friends, family and so much more. It shows the funny side of life as a teenager and it is even better as it is so much like real-life.
Georgia is the main character and she tells us what she is feeling from one minute to the next. She writes about her friends, her boyfriend Robbie, who she seems obsessed with which most girls are when they have a new boyfriend.
The themes I think, within this book are first loves, friendship, and relationships with parents and family. In Georgia's eyes her parents seem to be embarrassing and nagging which is what almost every teenager feels at sometime or another.
I think Louise Rennison has perfectly captured what it is like to be a teenager growing up nowadays. The strong points, in my opinion is the humour throughout the whole book which makes it enjoyable to read. Also, the truth within the story from what teenage girls feel and react to things such as what your friends say to you to the way people gossip and poke fun at others in a light-hearted way.
I think another way in which this is a fantastic book is that it is easy to read and so funny that you never want to put it down. I like it because it is as if she is talking to you rather than telling you a story, it doesn't go on describing small things in detail, it is a fast book.
The book's weak point however is that it wont appeal to a wide range of audience as it is aimed at teenage girls rather than younger children, boys or older adults.

Louise Rennison does it again! This woman knows exactley what every teenage girl wants to read, as well as their mother, sisters, aunts, cousins, the entire friend population which she may have. This book is most likely the best to date. I have never laughed so much in my entire life, let alone wet my knickers laughing. Some of the thrases which Georgia Nicolson uses are very catching, believe me, i cant stop saying 'in the name of o'reilly's pantiehose'. I reckomend this book to every female and maybe male, on this planet.

i started reading these books when i was 15, and then became unemployed and broke, so i couldn't get the next books....but i came acorss my two collections of books, one of them being this one. it was like coming home again, so much i found myself in the teen youth book aisle in my local bookstore scanning for the books, and lo and behod i find the author had done some more. which i have bought and have been reading since. i even found it funny 5 years on from when i first reading. i think any person even if they're not a teen can recongise themselves in georgia or some of the characters in there. all in all the confessions of... series are brilliant, and i would highly recommend anyone to buy these books, you will wet your pants indeed!!!

After reading my favourite authors two previous books, I (of course) had to buy the third and I must say that I wasn't disappointed!!
A maturing Georgia countinues filling us in on her difficult journey through womanhood. Along with Georgia's age increasing, so is her undying wit and humour!
After reading this book I am left in total suspense-who will Georgia choose? The Sex God or Dave The Laugh? I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of the fourth book. Come on Louise-don't keep us waiting too long!!!

I thought this book and its sequels are fab! The storys all about a teenager called Georgia Nicholson who is v. witty and v. sarcastic! Apart from that she has a scottish wildcat called Angus and is going out with a Sex God! She has a 'tragic' life aswell as a bonkers sister Libby. This is a must buy for people with a sense of humor, this is a must buy get people to buy it!(for xmas or whenever!)
Louise Rennison is real funny and I must have read it at least 500 times!

I loved Knocked Out by my Nunga-Nungas it was really funny and it shows what Georg thinks she wants now, she's not so sure though when she gets it. When she ends up snoging Dave the laugth when she's going out with SG. I think if the next book is as good as this we will all be addicted. Me and all my mates love it. It is really really good becase of the frame of mind Louise Rennison has she know's we all think just like that
