Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison-TEEN

Rating: 4/5 Stars

About the Book: Georgia Nicolson is trying to navigate through the crazy maze of high school. She has a great group of friends-her Ace Gang-and is in love with the sex god Robbie. Too bad Robbie has a girlfriend, the most beautiful popular girl at Georgia's school. As if high school and love triangles aren't bad enough, Georgia has to deal with her fat cat Angus and her embarrasing three-year-old sister. Georgia's adventures are always full of laughs-whether she intends them to be funny or not. Growing up is never easy, but at least Georgia Nicolson manages to make it fun.

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: As Georgia herself would say, this book is "fabbity fab fab!" Written in a diary format, Georgia's adventures are like Bridget Jones for the teen set. Full of fun and goofy situations, Georgia is a hilarious heroine that you cheer for all the way through. Beware of reading this one in public as you are sure to laughing like crazy.

  1. I remember reading this book in the seventh grade. It was pretty funny, and, apart from the Uglies, was the only book where the protagonist had a big nose.

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
