 Summary: Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging follows the journal of a teenage girl named Georgia Nicolson who battles with love, life and her crazy cat named Angus.

Georgia is growing up in England with her best friend Jas (Jasmine) and the rest of the Ace Gang. Living with her family: Connie Nicolson (Mother), Bob Nicolson (Father), her little sister Libby (Liberty) and her half Scottish half Wild cat Angus is not easy. Georgia falls for a ‘gorgey’ boy named Robbie, referred to by Georgia as The Sex God or SG. After taking snogging lessons, Georgia finally wins Robbie over, although a web of affairs means that not everything goes to plan.

My Review(spoiler-free!): Hello mates. This book and/or diary thingy is the first in the series about Georgia Nicolson; it was fabbity fab fab to read. Seriously, my family looked at me weird more than five times while reading this book. This being the about third time I read Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging I didn’t expect to burst out like I did. On the contrary, I had forgotten how incredible it was. The book is about an English girl going through life. She has problems with friends, family, neighbors, teachers, and boys. Most of the book is sarcastically funny. It ties down where Georgia is almost Robbie (the sex god she’s in love with)’s girlfriend. I can relate to Georgia, she is NOT beautiful, popular, and perfect and is rather completely on a mood roller coaster. One moment she hates her life and doesn’t want to get out her bed and then the next she’s ecstatic about the most silliest things. Awarded a Printz Award, Mrs. Rennison is one truly realistic writer. The whole Brit chick thing makes it even better in my opinion, having to go into the glossary in the back of the book to understand what she is saying at times. It’s easy to read and easy to follow, yet very unpredictable. From Angus (her cat), to Jas (her best friend), to Robbie (the sex god), this is sure to be a very recommended read. Don’t forget there’s eight more books to read after this one!
