Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging: Confessions of Georgia Nicolson by Louise Rennison
#5 of 25 for the 2010 YA Challenge
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A Bridget Jones for the younger set, Georgia records the momentous events of her life--and they are all momentous--in her diary, which serves as a truly hilarious account of what it means to be a modern girl on the cusp of womanhood. No matter that her particular story takes place in England, the account of her experiences rings true across the ocean (and besides, "Georgia's Glossary" swiftly eradicates any language barriers).
Just the title of this book has been making me giggle for months now. The author did a nice job of capturing the essence of being a teenage girl - drama abounds, there are worries over clothes, and boys and makeup. I also enjoyed the British slang and used the glossary a few times to make sure I knew what she meant. A cute read.
