I am a facsimile of a sham of a fax of a person.

Georgia Nicolson’s life is far from simple.  Her cat, Angus, is the size of a small Labrador.  Her three-year-old sister may have peed somewhere in her room.  And her best friend, Jas, thinks she looks like an alien just because she accidentally shaved off her eyebrows.  Enter the Sex God.  This just might turn out to be the most fabbity fab year ever!

My Thoughts:

This book was so much fun I didn’t want it to end and am quite anxious to get my hands on the next in the series.  Georgia Nicolson is 14 years old and must navigate her way through all the things that are important to a teenage girl like boys, school, friends, and of course clothes and make-up.  When she meets and falls for Robbie, “The Sex God”, her antics become hysterical.

There are no words to describe the awesomeness of this book.  If anyone is in need of some cheering up, this is the book to pick up.  Georgia is down-to-earth and unassuming, but completely sarcastic with a bit of a cynical edge.  The book is written completely as diary entries from Georgia, so it’s completely her point of view and the girl is too funny.  No lie, at one point I was actually doubled over, holding my stomach, with tears falling from my eyes because I was laughing so hard.

Her friends were a mess too.  The Ace Gang were an interesting group of girls with all different personalities.  Jas, Georgia’s best friend, is obsessed with Robbie’s brother and makes Georgia help her snag him.  I have to say there were some parts of the book that really made me question how good of a friend Jas was to her.  But there were times Georgia had her moments too.  Though to me they were mostly born of her friends not really getting her sarcasm.

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  It was a light, fun, and quick read that will have the reader in stitches.  I absolutely can’t wait to get and read the next book in the series and have even ordered the movie.  If you need a good laugh or just something light and entertaining, then consider giving this series a try.

      Sidne, this is a YA book. But I think if your looking for something light and entertaining, adults would enjoy it as well. It’s also a pretty quick read.

    The title sounds fascinating, I can just imagine how much fun this would be, especially for a teen. I will have to check this out at my next library visit.

    Seriously, this series possibly has the best book titles ever! Just by reading them, you know you’re in for a treat.

    I’ve read reviews for this book before that said much the same as you, Jade. I’m glad to know you enjoyed them too. I’ll add them to the wish list now.
