click meThe Pink Thing: Book 19

How did I get the book? I bought it.

It’s OK, I’m wearing really big knickers! 

Additional Information part2: I bought this courtesy of StorytellersInc telling me it needed to be included in The Pink Thing. The cover is a metallic cerise pink* so it worked, also she hasn’t steered me wrong yet.

Synopsis: There are six things very wrong with my life:
1. I have one of those under-the-skin spots that will never come to a head but lurk in a red way for the next two years.
2. It is on my nose
3. I have a three-year-old sister who may have peed somewhere in my room.
4. In fourteen days the summer hols will be over and then it will be back to Stalag 14 and Oberfuhrer Frau Simpson and her bunch of sadistic teachers.
5. I am very ugly and need to go into an ugly home.
6. I went to a party dressed as a stuffed olive.

In this wildly funny journal of a year in the life of Georgia Nicolson, British author Louise Rennison has perfectly captured the soaring joys and bottomless angst of being a teenager. In the spirit of Bridget Jones’s Diary, this fresh, irreverent, and simply hilarious book will leave you laughing out loud. As Georgia would say, it’s “Fabbity fab fab!”

200words (or less) review: This is the book you pick up when you need something to make you laugh. Georgia is hilarious! She’s also over the top, incredibly self-centered and has the best pet cat ever!

I think as a friend she would drive me nuts but as a narrator she is one of the best there is. It’s impossible not to laugh as the things that happen, be it shaving her eyebrows or the piggy nose school photo.

In Georgia’s head the world revolves around her but she has her moments. I thought that her relationship with her little sister was really nice.

There is not one big story, instead you follow Georgia on her (mis)adventures from day to day.  How she deals with her friends, tries to win the SG and gets into trouble at school.  During this you’ll be  struggling not to laugh out loud, promise.

Recommend it?


*it looks rather purple here though…
