4.5 of 5 stars
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.
“How do you make yourself not like someone?”This was a quick read, great laugh and good "dictionary" of English people. I mean, I did know most of the things she said, but some things I was like "what did she mean?". Overall, I laughed so much that I didn't mind all the stupid things she said, which were a lot. But coming from a 14 year old is ok.
“As she left my room I knew I should shut up. But you know when you should shut up because you really should just shut up...but you keep on and on anyway? Well, I had that.”Georgia Nicholson life, for her, isn't as perfect as she thinkgs, because she has a lousy father, a meh mother, a really strange little sister, a cat that doesn't act like a cat and more weird and non-sutle friends that you will ever meet. But honestly her life is more colorful than the rainbow. One day in her life brings more fun than a day in a park full of machines that go up and down making you want to puke. The story makes you laugh everywhere!
“Look, I can't go out with you, because...because...because I'm a lesbian.”She is trying to learn the "full-frontal snogging" and by doing so, she has two "boyfriends" before the Sex God lands. The SG is the man of her dreams, that no matter how much she despises her in the beginning or how much he tries to stay away from her... well, its another story, right?
“Watching TV mum said," Do you miss your dad?" And I said," Who?”Before ending this short review, I must talk about Angus. That cat is seriously a character that you say "wtf is thing doing here?". Is totally strange. They don't know exactly what kind of cat is. He eats everyone and bites everyone. He does the strangest things and gets in the weirdest troubles. BUT apart from all, you will laugh your ass off reading about him, I swear.
“When uncle Eddie does his impression of 'Like a Virgin' it's like Madonna is coming out of his body!' Christ what an image.”
