Light and Fun Young Adult Novel

I first came across this series several years ago when I was about 16 or so. I loved this book then, and continue to enjoy it now. "Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging" is written diary style  by a teenaged character named Georgia Nicholson. Georgia is an immature young girl who is slightly boy crazy and just wants to have fun with her best friends known as the Ace Gang.

Like any other teenager, in her eyes her parents are weird, her little sister is an adorable nut job and the family cat Angus is a lovable menace. While my teenager years were nowhere near as dramatic as Georgia's, I enjoyed reading about her antics. Her life is filled with the kind of drama adults--and even teens--role their eyes at. But despite all the eye rolling moments, this book (and the ones that follow) are pure and simple fun. As an adult re-reading this book I am reminded of simpler times, when my biggest worry was whether or not that cute blonde boy in my math class liked me back or not, and whether or not my shoes matched my top.

While later books in the series explore more "serious" issues--such as a bad break up and a broken heart--they are still portrayed in outrageous and amusing ways reminding readers that one can find something to laugh at even when times are bad if they just look hard enough.

If you are looking for a serious read, then "Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging" is not for you. But, if you're looking for a quick, fun read to take to the beach or read on a plane while en route to your vacation destination then you should seriously consider picking up a copy!

Read this under a day and didn't care for it. Do the young adult in your life a favor and buy them something classic like The Great Gatsby.
