Georgia's fandangos are granted bonus hilariosity owing to the fact that Rennison isn't just doing some creative writing, the contents are actually colorful excerpts from her bemused life. Unlike the typical adolescent fiction, there isn't much moral education or other such naff business lying underneath, just red bottomosity, snog scales, wet stick insect tarts, hornmeisters, spazzy Ace Gang members, the elderly mad, prat poodles, and welk boys. But that's not to say Georgia lacks wisdomosity, after all the glossary will be an instant improvement on anyone's vocabulary. It was originally there for the Hamburger-a-gogo-land (American) girls to understand the Billy-Shakespear-a-gogo-landers (Brits), but throughout the series it's more to explain Georgia's own vocab which becomes more interesting with every embarrassing situation she lands in. It's no wonder so many young girls can relate to Georgia... and even some of us who are twice her age.
