There are six things very wrong with my life: 1. I have one of those under-the-skin spots that will never come to a head but lurk in a red way for the next two years. 2. It is on my nose. 3. I have a three-year-old sister who may have peed somewhere in my room. 4. In fourteen days the summer hols will be over and then it will be back to Stalag 14 and Oberfuhrer Frau Simpson and her bunch of sadistic 'teachers'. 5. I am very ugly and need to go into an ugly home. 6. I went to a party dressed as a stuffed olive. Follow Georgia's hilarious antics as she tries to overcome the dilemma's that are weighing up against her, and muddle her way through teenage life and all that it entails: how to replace accidentally shaved-off eyebrows; how to cope with Angus, her small labrador-sized Scottish wildcat; her first kiss with Peter - afterwards known as Whelk Boy; annoying teachers; unsympathetic friends and family, and how to entice Robbie the Sex God!
Phew - she's really got her work cut out!

Review by PacificBlue
I bought this because it is a 'fabulously funny bestseller' and also they are making a film out of it. Unfortunately, it bored me within the first two chapters, feeling like a less well-done "Adrian Mole's Diary, Aged 14 1/2". (perhaps I'm showing my age here). There are days where the teenage author of this diary seems to spend every hour writing a one-sentence addition to her diary - even when she's supposedly at school, and nothing much happens through her days that is out of the ordinary, although for a teenager - perhaps it is. I know that this is really popular for younger readers, but the language just doesn't appear to me to be like any English teenager I know around here - and I work with them, in Britain. Obviously it just wasn't right for me, but as I said - seems popular with others.
Review by boppisces
The diary of fourteen-year-old Georgia Nicolson is a hilarious romp through the things that are going so wrong in her teenage life. From the escapades of her cat Angus, a mixed-breed, half Scottish wildcat, who is constantly stalking the neighbours poodle, to accidently shaving off her eyebrows, coping with a little sister who leaves used diapers in her bed, taking lessons in how to kiss properly and lusting after the local Sex God this is going to be an interesting year for Georgia. It’s great to find a funny book in the teen’s section! Very amusing.

I really enjoyed this book! I don't have much to stay about it as it's not very deep or anything but it was really fun to read. Georgia's voice is very distinctive and her diary entries are very witty. I loved her over dramatic reactions to her life. I read this in one sitting and really liked it. It was a very light and amusing read and I'm looking forward to reading the second in the series.
