Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison

On the Back of the Book

There are six things very wrong with my life:

1. 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.

2. It is on my nose

3. I have a three-year-old sister who may have peed somewhere in my room.

4. In fourteen days the summer hols will be over and then it will be back to Stalag 14 and Oberfuhrer Frau Simpson and her bunch of sadistic teachers.

5. I am very ugly and need to go into an ugly home.

6. I went to a party dressed as a stuffed olive.

My Thoughts

I first came across this series as a 12 year old who had read practically every other book in the kids section of the local library. I immediately fell in love with Louise Rennison's amusing but easy to read book. There may not be a massive plot involving vampires and werewolves at war but I am more than satisfied with Georgia's nose troubles.

Georgia is your average 14 year old girl and this book is her diary over a year. In her diary she talks about her worries, which are quite normal, if I had an enormous nose and no breasts I would also be worried. I wouldn't maybe be as dramatic as Georgia though. Saying that, I do so love a heroine with dramatic tendencies. Although she can be annoying at times most of the time I adore her. My favourite character has to be Angus the cat though. I want a cat like Angus.

This book is a hilarious start to a brilliant series. There are plenty of laugh out loud moments. Some of these are so funny that I had to stop reading. The quality of the writing is marvellous. When I was a teenager I could relate to Georgia and I loved the pranks she and her friends played on their teachers.

My Rating

5 stars - Awesome book. It's one of my all time favourites. My love of Georgia may have started with a chance encounter at Denbigh Library but eight years later, I feel a fondness for it that I rarely feel. Top marks!
