Publisher's Summary

Several things about 14-year-old Georgia Nicolson's life are very wrong. Her bedroom smells like her little sister probably peed somewhere, but she can?t find where. Angus, her enormous cat, keeps terrorizing Mrs. Next Door's poodle. Dad's gone off to look for work in New Zealand. And one of her friends has rated Georgia's nose a zero on a scale from 1-10. But what's really driving her crazy is that Sex God Robbie doesn't give her the time of day. In fact, he's dating total idiot Lindsay, who Georgia happens to know wears thong knickers, which have no purpose except to climb up your bum. Is it too much for Georgia to hope for some full-frontal snogging with a Sex God, if he ever notices her? Louise Rennison caused a sensation with this hilarious book that has been called Bridget Jones' Diary for adolescents. Narrator Stina Nielsen brilliantly fills the shoes of one of the most colorful young adult book characters in years.

"You know when you really should stop laughing and everyone is looking at you? This was me reading the manuscript on the train. This is a brilliant book!...I can't recommend it highly enough." (The Guardian)

Hilarious listen for pre-teens and adults

This is a hilarious story about the everyday happenings of a British 14-year-old. The British slang and wonderful narration would be worth the listen even without the entertaining story. The references to Georgia's cat never failed to make laugh out loud, and Georgia's madcap shenanigans were a great portrayal of the teenage psyche. One word of warning, however-- there is a LOT of British slang that may be confusing for those not familiar with it. There is a "glossary" at the end that explains it, but that is of limited usefulness in an audio format. Teens and folks with limited British exposure might do better to enjoy this one in print, but whatever the format this is not one to miss!

This book can only be describes as genius, crazy and so funny you might pee your pants. I was on the bus looking like an insane person laughing my ass off to this book. Buy it, better yet buy the book version so you can read along.

Have you listened to any of Stina Nielson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but I thought she did a fantastic job. Her tone and inflection perfectly imitated that of a very pissed off but hilarious cheeky teenager.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, unfortunately life got in the way
