Meet Georgia Nicholson, just a normal 14-year-old English girl. Or rather…maybe not so normal. What is normal anyway? Georgia has a giant Scottish Wildcat named Angus, a little sister who leaves a few too many gross surprises around the house, two totally uncool and unreasonable parents, and a nose that is far too large for her liking. This is her diary. On the bright side, during an attempt to set her friend Jas up with the bloke at the grocery store, she’s just met a Sex God. Here’s how it went:
“Tom [the bloke Jas is drooling over] went on, ‘Which school do you two go to?’ I was just about to tell him (even though in our plan it wasn’t really his turn)…when a Sex God came out of the back room.
I swear he was so gorgeous it made you blink and open your mouth like a goldfish. He was very tall and had long, black hair and really intense, dark-blue eyes and a big mouth and was dressed all in black. (And that’s all I remember, officer.) He came over to Tom and handed him a cup of tea. Tom said, ‘Thanks,’ and the Sex God spoke. ‘Can’t let my little brother slave away, serving apples to good-looking girls without even a cup of tea.’ Then he WINKED at Tom and SMILED at me, then he went out the back.” (p. 48)
This school year could be a disaster, or the most fabbity fab ever. Thanks to Georgia’s diary, you can get the inside scoop. Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging is laugh-out-loud funny in the most honest way, and a must-read for teen girls.
