“See you later? What does that mean?”

Georgia Nicholson is fourteen and on the brink of woman hood – she even wears a bra now. Her little sister is insane, her parents just don't understand. Her friends, well, she loves them and then she hates them. Everything's going as normal as it can be for Georgia, until the day she sees Robbie aka "The Sex God". Watch as Georgia's life goes from crazy to insane as she tries to get the Sex God's attention.

I read (or rather listened to the audio tape) this book because of the movie, I like to read the book before I watch the movie so that I can compare them, odd, I know. The movie made me cringe, Georgia is weird in a way that I think should only ever be read, not watched.
I walked in and out of the room as I listened to the beginning of the tape, but as the story progressed, I was very engrossed in her story, not because it had the best plot ever, or the characters were so amazing and deep, it was because it was so funny. Georgia, made me laugh numerous amounts of times throughout this novel and that's why I liked it.
The plot was fun and easy. The characters were funny and light. The story was just: easy going. I liked that for a change I wasn't reading a complicated novel that was filled with twists and turns (even though I love twists and turns) just for a little change.
Even though the characters were insane you could relate to them, I found myself laughing at memories of my friends and I doing silly things like the “Ace Gang” back in the day.
My little sister is very picky with her novels and she enjoyed this one, so that must be a good sign. Though, it does show that this novel is directed at pre teens and early teens, so if that's not your thing, stay away.
I spent less then a day listening to this novel because I enjoyed it so much. I think that if you're looking for something to read, just for a little fun, you should look into finding yourself a copy of Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging.

I give this novel four stars. It was so hilarious that I'm currently listening to the sequel: It's Okay, I'm Wearing Really Big Knickers. And it's quite a laugh as well.

Best Wishes.

I have this book, started it and got distracted and never got back to it. I guess I will now!
