Angus: My mixed-breed cat, half domestic tabby, half Scottish wildcat. The size of a small Labrador, only mad. Likes to stalk Mr. and Mrs. Next Door's poodle. I used to drag him around on a lead, but, as I explained to Mrs. Next Door, he ate it. Thongs: Stupid underwear worn by old Swotty Knickers, Lindsay What's the point of them, anyway? They just go up your bum, as far as I can tell. Full-Frontal Snogging: Kissing with the trimmings, lip to lip, open mouth, tongues...everything (apart from dribble, which is never acceptable). As taught to me by a professional snogger. In this wildly funny journal of a year in the life of Georgia Nicolson, British author Louise Rennison has perfectly captured the soaring joys and bottomless angust if being a teenager. In the spirit of Bridget Jones' Diary, this fresh, irreverent, and simply hilarious book will leave you laughing out loud. As Georgia would say, it's "Fabbity fab fab!"

Many readers will relate to this coming-of-age story, yet it falls short in the character development and plot. This books is interesting and funny, but not unique. It is similar to many books in its genre, with a female protagonist seeking to cope with the struggles of romance, puberty, and young adulthood.

This book is about a young teenage girl who is about to turn 15 and struggles to handle her first crush and her stone-age parents. I recommend this book for young teenage girls because this book gives good advice on how to handle being a teenager and how not to handle being a teenager. In this book there's a lot of twists, bumps and funny moments that can also help a young girl during the teenage phase. I really like this book because it helps control my emotions, to me, it's like a girl bible.

This seemed like the type of book I'd usually dismiss. After having a friend of mine recommend it, I found Angus, Thongs to be a thoroughly enjoyable and humorous book.

Wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great either. There were enough funny aspects of the story to keep on reading, but I wouldn't read it again. Overall a mediocre book.

Beware: If you read this book in public be prepared to get funny looks from people because you will not be able to stop yourself from chuckling aloud. Georgia is hilarious! I strongly recomend every teenage girl to read this book and i loved the glossary at the end for the British terms. So much fun!
