From the Back Cover
Read more crazy confessions of Georgia Nicolson in herhilarious, bestselling diary.
This is my fabulous life:
The Sex God left for Kiwi-a-gogo land last month and he has taken my heart with him.
Not literally, of course, otherwise there would be a big hole in my nunga-nungas.
And also I would be dead.
Which quite frankly would be a blessing in disguise.

The main character is Georgia Nicoleson. I sympathise for her, because she has quite a troubled life. She finds her family highly embarrassing and she doesn't like her friends to see them at all. She has a cat called Angus, whom is quite like a human to them, and the way that his actions are described is quite human like. Georgia's best friend, Jas, is mentioned frequently throughout and her character is ambitious and outgoing like many of her friends. All of the characters have situations that everyday people can relate to.
The genre of this book is humour/romance. The book is about a teenage girl in love, but there is a humorous twist to it. Romance it may be, you'll still find it hilarious.
There are many enjoyable aspects of the book, such as, when Georgia went to a party to meet this handsome boy, Masimo, she wore false eye lashers and when she was talking to him they glued her eyes shut. I liked this part, because it was very funny to read and she couldn't re-open her eyes.
The story moves quite slowly, because it is in the form of a diary. Although the pace is slow, there isn't too much description. But you still know what is going on.
I think that the author has tried to achieve to her potential readers a glimpse into the life of a 16 year old and the ups and downs that may occur throughout home, school and social events.Read more ›
Right; I've being trying to work out what it is exactly about Georgia that is so funny ...
... her mad, mad, mad expressions? (She is totally responsible for me and my friends calling Biology 'Blodge' and Geography 'joggers'! Also hilarious is a section at the back where Georgia tries to translate English expressions for an American audience ... cue a lot of disbelief and tongue-in-cheek mocking!)
... her appalling family? (Ie; her kid sister takes a statue of Jesus off a shrine Georgia made - for some bonkers reason I forget now - and uses him as a boyfriend for ScubaDiving Barbie! And her father ...! Let's just call him 'Legalet' and be done with it!)
...or maybe the amazingly cringy situations she inexplicably, constantly finds herself in? (I mean, who couln't laugh at the scene where she gets her 'boy-entrancers' - false eyelashes - stuck together and has to dance the Conga to Rolf Harris in order to get away from Masimo, Italian Hot Guy Extraordinair, without too much, *smirk*, embarrassment?)
Whatever the reason, Georgia is at once every teenage girl and the girl every teenager would rather die than be ... except, of course, when she gets her man, or in some cases, men ... Another round of 'lets go down to the disco dancing, anyone?'
"my fans, which even includes some vatis (which is a little alarming)"
these books would make anybody laugh out loud. if you are a girl, they are exactly what it was like to be a teenager. if you are a boy, read them and you will finally understand girls!
they are all hilarious and louise rennison is a comedy genius, but this is the funniest of the lot!
This is think is the 5th book in the series, and i loved it to bits.
I would reccomend this to anyone.
PS the rolf harris thing will be guaranteed to get you laughing!
