On YA From My Youth today we have Kate Ormand, who will be debuting as a author in Spring 2014, with Dark Days, her YA dystopian novel.
Louise Rennison was my number one go-to during my teens. I loved going to the library with my mum to choose a book to read, and I remember that I always headed straight of the shelf that held The Confessions of Georgia Nicolson. The series always made me laugh out loud, and there’s SO much drama. They’re hilarious. I’d love to read them again some time.
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 angst 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!"
