Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison
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.
In this wildly funny journal of a year in the life of Georgia Nicolson, British author Louise Rennison has perfectly captured the soaring joys and bottomless angst of being a teenager. In the spirit of Bridget Joness Diary, this fresh, irreverent, and simply hilarious book will leave you laughing out loud. As Georgia would say, its Fabbity fab fab!

5 Things All Louise Rennison Fans Know To Be True
This was no Judy Blume, where any in-depth explorations of being a teen or exploring oneself as a sexual being were tucked safely in the pages. It was right there on the cover. I was hooked almost instantly. Georgia, our protagonist, took me through the world of prep school England, rife with friends, hallway nemeses, dreamy lead singers and embarrassments at nearly every turn. Louise Rennison wrote a world that was relatable and yet so far beyond what I saw as my quaint provincial suburban Long Island life. Very sad to hear that the great YA writer Louise Rennison has died.
It was published in It is the first book of ten in the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series. Georgia is trying to survive adolescence while the rest of her family seems to be certifiably insane. In particular, at the start of the novel, she's trying to recover from an embarrassing incident at a fancy dress party, where she went as a stuffed olive. Her friend Jas tries to help her recover from it, and tells her that boys don't like girls for funniness. One of her paranoias in the novel is her fear of having to become a lesbian because no boy will date her. She also hates her brown hair and huge nose.

And thanks to John Nicolson. Dad had Uncle Eddie round so naturally they had to come and nose around and see what I was up to.
