Though she doesn't seem aware of it, this is likely due to Georgia's age—she's in a place developmentally where she craves independence, but also sees her parents as a reflection of who she is. She was shallow and mean to her friend at times. Loved the glossary in the back, the British writing style, and the scadalous life of Georgia. Tempting though it may be to tell Georgia to get a grip, Robbie's wishy-washy judgmental ways really feed into her insecurity. Georgia's generally really nice to her, even when Libby causes major embarrassments like exclaiming to Robbie that Georgia took a big poo. Desperate to prove him wrong, Georgia tries to bleach a strip of her hair blonde, but it comes off in her hand.
I wish I had read this book when I was a teenager. Is it too much for Georgia to hope for some full-frontal snogging with a Sex God, if he ever notices her? Georgia is more interested in boys, meeting them, attracting them,and potentially snogging them if she can ever figure out what to do with her arms , than she is in the mysteries of physics or Frog French. To be fair, though, Jas deserves irritation a fair amount of the time. Several things about 14-year-old Georgia Nicolson's life are very wrong. She is completely batty, but in the same way that we all are.
Louise Rennison caused a sensation with this hilarious book that has been called Bridget Jones' Diary for adolescents. Georgia's a newbie, if you will, and she responds to this status with pretty epic insecurity. About The Author Louise Rennison lives in Brighton, a place that she likes to think of as the San Francisco of the south coast. Georgia's rejection of her family isn't strictly fashion-related, though. Still racy, but very funny.
She also has a tendency to shake off sweet moments between her and her family. The style is a little odd and took some getting used to, but I immediately fell in love with Rennison's quirky characters. Narrator Stina Nielsen brilliantly fills the shoes of one of the most colorful young adult book characters in years. Written in diary form, this book is literally hilarious.

We know she still really cares about them, though, because she frets over their marriage when she suspects her mom has started an affair with the decorator she hires, Jem, and she makes them really thoughtful presents for Christmas. Like Georgia's interest in changing herself to appeal to the opposite gender, though, again we see Georgia thinking of her body as something with social worth instead of personal worth. In 2009, the book was challenged at the Maplewood Middle School Library in , leading the school to require parental consent before allowing students to have access to it. Went on to read all the other books in the series. One doesn't snog one's gran grandmother unless one is very, very strange. I began to think that perhaps I was too old to enjoy Georgia and her musing, after all this time.
Who hasn't tried on perfume or makeup samples without buying them right before a date? A snog is a kiss, and not of the chaste sort. Luckily for us then, Georgia is a funny, naïve, and self-critical teenager, and since she's British, she busts out all kinds of cute English colloquialisms. Angus intimidates dogs and Angus eats leads that's leash in American on a regular basis. It is on my nose 3. Georgia lives at the edge of love and mortification when she's with her family, so she tries to ignore them as much as possible.
It isn't all drama, though, and Georgia and Jas share some sweet moments together, like singing together in the car or planning out what to wear. I think if you are a middle school, high school, or even a college student you read this if you need a good laugh. The second thing I'd like to explain is snogging. Georgia always seems to be irritated by Jas, almost no matter what Jas does. Expect Potter-esque queues for the sequel.
I highly recommend this book for teenagers. Also, it sounds like something that would really happen to a teenager. Another sign that Georgia isn't the toughy she tries to be on the home front is her relationship with her little sister, Libby. I first read Angus, Thongs and Full-frontal Snogging back in high school, about 15 years ago. Georgia is hilarious and the book is a light, very cute and fun read. I have one of those under-the-skin spots that will never come to a head but lurk in a red way for the next two years.
