Sobre l'autor

Louise Rennison was born in 1951 and grew up in Leeds, England and Wairakei, New Zealand. She studied performing arts at Brighton University, during which time she wrote and performed a one-woman autobiographical show, Stevie Wonder Felt My Face, about her experiences living in Notting Hill. The mostra'n més production won awards at the Edinburgh Festival and was adapted as a BBC television special. As a result of the show's success, she started writing a column entitled Dating Over 35 for a London newspaper and was eventually offered a book deal. Her first book, Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging, was published in 1999. This was the first book in the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series. The first two books in the series were adapted into a film entitled Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging. She also wrote the Misadventures of Tallulah Casey series. The first book in the series, Withering Tights, won the Roald Dahl Funny Prize in 2010 in the 7-14 category. She also wrote and performed two other stage shows entitled Bob Marley's Gardener Sold My Friend and Never Eat Anything Bigger Than Your Head. She died on February 29, 2016 at the age of 63.

I read this for the "Author Whose Last Name Starts With The Same Initial As Yours" part of my 2020 reading challenge. It was good, but I didn't find it as "laugh out loud" funny as the author's other series.

I liked the flow of this one a bit more than the first book, but it still wasn't as laugh-out-loud as Georgia's books are.

Ultimately, not a lot happens in this story and nothing is truly resolved; it is just a weeks-long snapshot of the life of an English 16-year-old girl. The pleasure comes from Georgia's narrative voice and her highly idiosyncratic use of the Queen's English (if such it can be called). Think "Bertie Wooster as a modern teen-ager". The audiobook is read by the author, so I know what I heard was absolutely authentic in terms of what she wanted us to hear.
