Chapter One

july
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.)

If I counted up the number of times I've been tutted at, I could open a tutting shop. It's just not fair.... How can my parents take me away from my mates and make me go to New Zealand? Who goes to New Zealand?

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.

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)

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.
