Summary: (Amazon)
She has a precocious 3-year-old sister who tends to leave wet nappies at the foot of her bed, an insane cat who is prone to leg-shredding "Call of the Wild" episodes, and embarrassing parents who make her want to escape to Stonehenge and dance with the Druids. No wonder 14-year-old Georgia Nicolson laments, "Honestly, what is the point?" A Bridget Jones for the younger set, Georgia records the momentous events of her life--and they are all momentous--in her diary, which serves as a truly hilarious account of what it means to be a modern girl on the cusp of womanhood. No matter that her particular story takes place in England, the account of her experiences rings true across the ocean (and besides, "Georgia's Glossary" swiftly eradicates any language barriers).

My Thoughts:
To be honest I was not excited to read this book. About 3 or 4 years ago I had tried and hated it. When my friend told me to try again I had to be forced into it. I am glad I did! It was nice to escape the common American plot and experience some European. I also liked that Georgia spoke some French even though it was mostly bad words. The French teacher flipped when I asked what Merde meant!!! J The plot was super unique and the characters likeable. Georgia could be a BEY-OTCH but that made me like her even more. Oh, and come on. This book has a SEX GOD! What’s not to love! Check it out guys.

P.S. There is a movie too. Not here yet, but in Europe.
