Book Summary

Georgia Nicolson is back! The irrepressible heroine of Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging has just started dating the Sex God (aka Robbie).

the sex god has landed...

sunday July 16th my room

6:00 P.M.


Staring out of my bedroom window at other people having a nice life.

Who would have thought things could be so unbelievably pooey? I'm only fourteen and my life is over because of the selfishosity of-so-called grown-ups. I said to Mum, "You are ruining my life. Just because yours is practically over there is no reason to take it out on me."

But as usual when I say something sensible and meaningful she just tutted and adjusted her bra like a Russian roulette player. (Or do I mean disco thrower? I don't know and, what's more, I don't care.)

Reviews

Media Reviews
Sunday Times (UK)

Funnier than the first book. Rennison has got into her stride.

Sunday Telegraph (UK)

A fabbity fab holiday read

Sunday Mirror (UK)

This is laugh-out-loud stuff for adolescent girls and anyone worn down by adult life who needs reminding that being young isn't all good fun.

Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey

Short on plot but long on appeal for the middle school set, kids will eagerly devour Georgia's hilarious misadventures. A glossary of British slang written in Georgia's inimitable style will clear up any confusion with Britshisms. Ages 12 to 14.

Publishers Weekly

A hilarious sequel. Georgia Nicolson’s laugh-a-minute narration picks up right where Angus left off.

Voya

Irrepressible…sure to ring true for many readers.

School Library Journal - Mara Bright

A funny romp through the intricacies of one especially explosive period of growing up and will be devoured by girls on the brink of becoming teenagers and those who are living in the thick of it now. (Grades 7-9)
