Louise Rennison was a British comedian and the internationally bestselling and award-winning author of the angst-filled Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series as well as the Misadventures of Tallulah Casey series. Her first novel, Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging, received a Michael L. Printz Honor Award in 2001, was adapted into a feature film, and has become a worldwide bestseller now translated into 34 languages. She was also awarded the Roald Dahl Funny Prize for the first book in her Tallulah Casey series, Withering Tights.
Having said that, I do think the book is very funny and that if you are on the fence then you should just read it. You'll know within the first 10 pages or so whether you like it. The style is very easy to read and light-hearted so it's ideal if you want to read something that doesn't require a lot of thinking.
I would definitely recommend buying it for any young teenage girl as I'm sure that they would enjoy it. As for adults if you like Bridget Jones then consider this a teenage version. Parents, I wouldn't worry about letting your teens read this (I'd say age 12+) as nothing R rated occurs. Anything of 'that' issue is just kissing.
The hero, Georgia is fourteen, obsessed by her appearance and boys and perpetually humiliated by her family. The book charts her life in diary form over several months and her pursuit of a teenage 'sex god'.
I caught myself wishing this book had been published when I was a teenager, because I know I would have read and re-read it and found it totally hilarious.
Bought this for university purposes to write about his language. Avid fan of the series anyway - got them all and I love them! Was great fun - read the novel out loud and even got my boyfriend laughing!
Teen of Queen - yes Louise Rennison you are!
