Read the journal of Georgia Nicholson, a teen from the U.K.. Follow her through her adventures with family, love, and lots of snogging!
Her cat, Angus, is trying to eat the poodle next door. And her best friend thinks she looks like an alien – just because she accidentally shaved off her eyebrows. Still, add a little boy-stalking, teacher-baiting, and full-frontal snogging with a Sex God, and Georgia’s year just might turn out to be the most fab ever!
For anyone who likes British slang, funny stories, and kissing boys, this is a book for you!
"I love books from other countries. Angus, Thongs, and Full Frontal Snogging, is so funny. I love all the slang, and there are a bunch of books in the series, so there is lots to read." Mandy
