Humour for ages 11 to 16 published by Scholastic Children’s Books
Mrs Mad's humble opinion
10/10 Excellent work. Well done!
What's it about?
Here comes Georgia Nicolson, who seems to be having some trouble with her Nunga-Nungas!
What happens?
Things are looking good for Georgia, her dad has decided not to relocate to New Zealand and the Sex God wants her back. Even the family holiday in Scotland, with the cousin with sex on his brain cannot dispel her happiness. Although it is having a good try! However good things are a bit strange sometimes and Georgia is a bit concerned that one of her mates is now going out with Dave 'The Laugh', which she should be pleased about. And how come they end up having the occasional secret snogging session! It is not easy being a teenager when your hormones start playing up!
Is it easy to read?
Easily read by a good reader, but the content means I would not recommend this for anyone under eleven.
Anything else?
I have found myself dropping odd Georgia-isms into my conversation just lately which confuses and annoys my husband and just makes my little girls laugh. They can't quite manage to say Nunga-Nungas yet but I will no doubt get my comeuppance when they shock everyone at the dinner table soon! You just can't help but be totally drawn into these wonderful books they are so funny and endearing. Georgia is a wonderful voice for teenage girls who are trying to enjoy life before it's too late! Read these books and laugh out loud. HA HA!
Other books by Louise Rennison include '...and that's when it fell off in my hand.', '...And then he ate my boy entrancers..', Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging, Dancing in my Nuddy Pants, It's Ok, I'm Wearing Really Big Knickers.

This review by Mrs Mad.
The publisher reckons...
The Sex God was waiting for me outside school!!! How cool is that? And he was in his cool car. Fortunately I had abstained from doing anything ridiculous with my beret. So I was able to get into his car only having to concentrate on not letting my nostrils flare too much... or knocking him out with my nunga-nungas. SHUT UP,BRAIN!!! Will Georgia ever be allowed back to Stalag 14? Will she choose Sex God or Dave the Laugh? And will she survive a family holiday in Och-Aye Land without permanent mental scarring? Find out in Knocked Out by my Nunga-Nungas!
