#BookReview|Angus,Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging|Louise Rennison

I wanted something light and easy to read to start of the month and this was a perfect choice. I love Adrian Mole and this seemed to be the same sort of book. Having been a teenage girl once, HaHa, it was a nice way to look back and now see teenage angst through different eyes.

Synopsis

Brilliantly funny, teenage angst author Louise Rennison’s first book about the confessions of crazy but lovable Georgia Nicolson. Now repackaged in a gorgeous new paperback and looking even fabber than ever. Louise is an international bestselling author and her books can’t fail to make you laugh out loud.

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 Oberführer 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.

Follow Georgia’s hilarious antics as she tries to overcome the dilemma’s that are weighing up against her, and muddle her way through teenage life and all that it entails: how to replace accidentally shaved-off eyebrows; how to cope with Angus, her small labrador-sized Scottish wildcat; her first kiss with Peter – afterwards known as Whelk Boy; annoying teachers; unsympathetic friends and family, and how to entice Robbie the Sex God! Phew – she’s really got her work cut out!

My Review **** 4 stars Ok so I saw the film of this book years ago and thought why not read the book. It’s been on my tbr pile for a while. I wanted something light and easy to read after a month of beta reading and NetGalley reviewing.Kind of an Adrian Mole type book but from the view point of a teenage girl. So I grabbed this and read it in a couple of days. I have to say I was cringing a little bit thinking about what I was like at 14 and yeah a lot of the language and general behaviour had me face palming and saying was I really like that. Yes to a certain extent I was. It was funny in places and I particularly loved the dialogue about Angus the cat. I really loved it by the end and I want to read the rest of the series. Georgia’s glossary is brilliant also explains all the ‘cool’ words and terms used throughout the book.

About The Author

Louise Rennison was a journalist, comedian and beloved author. In 1999, she introduced Georgia Nicolson to the world with ANGUS THONGS & FULL-FRONTAL SNOGGING – the first in a 10-book series. The book won the Nestlé Smarties Book Prize Bronze Award and was adapted for film in 2008. In the same year, Louise was crowned Queen of Teens for the series, and in 2010, was awarded the Roald Dahl Funny Prize for WITHERING TIGHTS – the first in a spin-off following the hysterical misadventures of Georgia’s cousin, Tallulah.

Sadly, Louise passed away in 2016 at 64-years-young. She left behind a legion of adoring readers who hold Georgia and the Ace Gang close to their hearts. Her books have been translated into 37 languages and have sold more than 2.6 million copies in the UK. Louise lives on through her cherished character Georgia – who was based on her own teen experiences.
