Rennison, Louise. Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging: Confessions of Georgia Nicolson. HarperCollins, 2000. ISBN 0-06-028814-0. $15.89. 247 pp. A 7-12 FI Reviewed by Rachel Wadham In this fictional journal, fourteen-year-old Georgia Nicolson recounts the crucial, and sometimes embarrassing, events of one year of her life. From dealing with bras and pondering how one should turn one’s head when kissing to trying to impress “Mr. Gorgeous” when he only seems to see you at awkward moments, Georgia grapples with many issues facing teen girls. Originally published in England by Piccadilly Press, this hilarious tale of a teenager’s life will not be bound by countries’ borders. Rennison, a British comedy writer, deals honestly with a variety of teen concerns, including dealing with one’s parents and siblings, sexuality, and finding true love. A glossary in the back is helpful in navigating the British tone and vocabulary of the book. While the frank, and ofttimes outrageous, descriptions of life and love may be offensive to some, this realistic and funny slice of a life story is a superior read.
