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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Georgia Nicolson is a typically shallow, self-obsessed, yet fun-loving and warm fourteen-year-old girl, whose main concerns revolve around her appearance and boys (the Sex God will become a househeld name). In this diary-style book, we are invited to follow Georgia's hilarious and brutally honest account of her life and the world around her. It's not about any particular issue (except surviving being a teenager), it preaches nothing and there are no clever twists- but that's not important because it's just SO funny. If you do not read this you will be missing out.
An amazing 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).
These are delicious dairies full of thrills, spills and hilarious escapades, amply titled with a dazzling set of wicked catchphrases.Read more ›
