Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging Confessions of Georgia Nicolson
by Louise Rennison
Hardcover: Apr 2000,
Paperback: Apr 2001,
Angus: My mixed-breed cat, half domestic tabby, half Scottish wildcat.
The size of a small Labrador, only mad. Likes to stalk Mr. and Mrs. Next Door's
poodle. I used to drag him around on a lead, but, as I explained to Mrs. Next
Door, he ate it.
Thongs: Stupid underwear worn by old Swotty Knickers, Lindsay What's
the point of them, anyway? They just go up your bum, as far as I can tell.
Full-Frontal Snogging: Kissing with the trimmings, lip to lip, open
mouth, tongues...everything (apart from dribble, which is never acceptable). As
taught to me by a professional snogger.
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 Jones' Diary,
this fresh, irreverent, and simply hilarious book will leave you laughing out
loud. As Georgia would say, it's "Fabbity fab fab!"
(This book was first published in the UK with the title It's Okay, I'm Wearing Really Big Knickers)
In the style of a younger Bridget Jones, Georgia writes with high drama
about parents, school and boys. Whether describing moments of desolation or
rhapsodic joy, she has exquisite comic timing. Rennison includes a funny
glossary to cover all the terms, such as snogging (kissing), unfamiliar to

The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
Brash, heedless, and extremely--sometimes even intentionally--funny,
Georgia is sort of a British version of Naylor's Alice absent mature authorial
guidance...With highspirited and exhausting intensity Georgia flings herself
from one crisis to another, helplessly authentic and helplessly humerous in
Rennison exquisitely captures the fine art of the
adolescent ability to turn chaos into stand-up comedy.

by Erynn Kerwin **double cool with knobs & sex gods akimbo** 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... Read More

by Michaela Shennan Angus thongs and full-frontal snogging This book is really good and funny to read for ages 10 and up. I love the way it is presented and when I first started reading it I thought I would give up but I kept on reading it because it is so interesting and funny.
A funny, touching, revealing story written entirely in the form of letters, messages, postcards - and bizarre missives. Hilariously candid, shows that the roller coaster ride of being a teenager is every bit as fun as we remember--and every bit as harrowing.
