Snogging, nearly-snogging, other people’s snogs, make up disasters, embarrassing parents and friends – loyal and not...

Fans of best-selling teenage tearaway Georgia Nicolson will be delighted by her latest hilarious diary which records all the highs and lows of being a teenager.


Startled By His Furry Shorts! by Louise Rennison

Georgia Nicolson is a crazy but loveable teenager. Now, she is on the 'rack of luuurve'. Will Masimo the Italian Stallion agree to be her one and only boyfriend? How does she feel about her old friend and lip-nibbling partner, Dave the Laugh? This title follows her hilarious antics as she desperately tries to muddle her way through teenage life.


Totally hilarious

'It's an excellent book and I'm dying to know what happens next.'

'...then he ate my boy entrancers.': You'll be falling about laughing at this.'

'The only snag about taking this on holiday is that it won't last long: it will be consumed without a break except for the snorting noises. But it can always be passed on to parents by any youngster who can stand the sound of Vati's and Mutti's snorts, or dipped into repeatedly because every line is vair vair funny.'

'...and that's when it fell off in my hand.': 'Readers will find themselves laughing uncontrollably until their sides hurt, and won't be able to put the book down.'

'Hilarious... [Louise Rennison] is queen of the pink-book pack.'

'Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging': 'Bridget Jones for teenagers - but funnier. Expect Potter-esque queues for the sequel.'

'Don't miss this gem'

About the Author

Louise Rennison

Louise Rennison (1951 – 2016) A hugely popular writer and comedian, who wrote brilliantly funny stories for teenage girls including the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series, the first of which was made into a successful movie.

When Louise was 15, her parents decided to emigrate to Wairakei in New Zealand. Its main claim to fame is that it had some of the most violent geothermal activity in the world. "When we had Sunday lunch in the back garden, the tables heaved and lurched around, and the trees went backwards and forwards. That was because underneath the table, underneath the earth's surface, thousands of cubic feet of molten steam was trying to get out … and kill us!" Louise's dad had his shoes blown off by a rogue bore.

Louise's research for her books required many hours hanging around with 14-year-olds which is, as she said, "Brilliant - the best fun known to humanity. It's all boys, make-up, laughing and, er, that's it.”
