Teaser Tuesday *Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging*

I'm currently reading Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison, the first of a huge series, upt to 9 books I think now. The first book is told as the diary entries of Georgia Nicolson, age 14, as she talks about life, parents, school, friends, and especially love. And it is a Michael L. Printz Honor book.
I have to say that while I'm not loving the book, it is freaking and redeemingly hilarious. And I seriously mean freaking; it lures from me this terrible laugh that goes "BAAAAAAA HAHHAHAHAH", with an extreme emphasis on the BAA part.

A little more?

She has a precocious 3-year-old sister who tends to leave wet nappies at the foot of her bed, an insane cat who is prone to leg-shredding "Call of the Wild" episodes, and embarrassing parents who make her want to escape to Stonehenge and dance with the Druids. No wonder 14-year-old Georgia Nicolson laments, "Honestly, what is the point?" A Bridget Jones for the younger set, Georgia records the momentous events of her life--and they are all momentous--in her diary, which serves as a truly hilarious account of what it means to be a modern girl on the cusp of womanhood. No matter that her particular story takes place in England, the account of her experiences rings true across the ocean (and besides, "Georgia's Glossary" swiftly eradicates any language barriers). (Goodreads.com)

And here are your teasers (I couldn't stop at one):

I looked at his hands...they are lovely--all strong-looking but quite artistic too. Like he could put up a shelf and also take you to a plateau of sensual pleasure at the same time.

There are six things very wrong with my life...
(5) I am very ugly and need to go into an ugly home.

What a stupid language German is. You have to wait until the end of the sentence to find out what the verb is. But my attitude by then is, Who cares??
