Angus Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging
My daughters are voracious readers of the latest teen books. They have started to read books that I really think they would like. In turn, they recommended I read one of their favorite teen series. I began with Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison.
Louise Rennison has written an ongoing series of the life of Georgia Nicolson. The books are written like a diary with dates and times. The books are laugh out look hilarious. So far I have read the first two and plan on finishing the series.
Georgia Nicolson is a Brit. She has a totally disfunctional family consisting of a nutty 3 year old sister, a mom, a dad, an uncle and a wacky cat that is a cross between a lion and a cougar. Georgia attends the local private girls school with her pals. She is focused boys, friends, her looks and life in general.
The book is written very tongue and cheek. When Georgia rants on about her eyebrows and decides plucking is awfully painful, she decides to take a razor to her brows. The book is written like Georgia is speaking to you. So, as she goes through the decision to shave and the outcome, I was literally laughing so hard that I hard tears coming down my cheeks.
Smart, witty and spot on about where your head is when you are a 14 year old. Loved the book. Can hardly wait to finish the series.
