Summary: (Amazon)
Fourteen-year-old Georgia Nicolson is back in British author Louise Rennison's irreverent, laugh-out-loud sequel to the Michael L. Printz Honor Book Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging. Written in diary form, these truly hilarious books chronicle the often minute-by-minute, very dramatic, and significant flip-flops of a teenager's psyche.
7:18 p.m.My eyes are all swollen up like mice eyes from crying. Even my nose is swollen. It's not small at the best of times, but now it looks like I've got three cheeks. Marvelous. Thank you, God.
9:00 p.m.I'll never get over this.
9:10 p.m.Time goes very slowly when you're suicidal.

My Thoughts:
The first book in this series was pretty good but this one was far from it. The plot was just one big, frickin, run on from the first book. Georgia was on my nerves by like page 15. I had no desire to read more because it goes so long but I did finish. The middle was alright but the beginning and end both weren’t worth it. I will not be reading the rest of the series, but I have a thing against annoying whiners. If you can handle whining from a 14 year old that acts like she’s 10 then do read this!

PS. Sorry for the short review but I have a sprained wrist and typing hurts very bad.

Yikes, I was pretty excited to read this series since I just realized it ended, but now not so much. Aww, hope your sprained wrist gets better! I remember when I sprained my ankle and thought I was going to die. D:
