The further fabbitty fab confessions of Georgia Nicolson, as recounted to an adoring, expectant reading public by top teen writing queen Louise Rennison, has been two years in the making and much anticipated. The fifth book in the series, …And that’s when it fell off in my hand, is every bit as cool and laugh-out-loud funny as those before it. Phew. Imagine if it’d been crap? It would have been a huge, huge disaster. Georgia, boyfriendless now that Robbie the Sex God has gone off to New Zealand is, according to her best mate Jas, upset, and all lonely, with no one to really care about her, the days stretching ahead without any meaning. But Georgia doesn’t remain broken-hearted for long. Suddenly she has things filling up her days like frequent snogging extravaganzas with old flame, Dave the Laugh, who gives her the Mega Horn, and having to cope with the arrival of jelloid-knee-inducing Italian stallion, Masimo, and putting down the thoroughly unwanted attentions of Mark Big Gob. Robbie who? It’s difficult to fault Rennison’s ability to accurately depict the tormented lives of teens today. Georgia is frighteningly typical, if a little over-dramatic, and her antics are gloriously topical. There’s a laugh a line and getting this funny on every page is very hard indeed. It’s great to see Rennison’s new UK publishers have adopted the convention used in the American editions of these books, by adding a glossary of all the terms used by the author that might need some clarification for the less with-it readers dropping in. The definitions of words like ‘smalls’ (an ironic terms for underpants), ‘pash’ (passion) and ‘nunga-nungas’ (Girl’s breasty business) are truly hilarious and are worth the cover price alone. These books are totally essential teen reading. Do not delay…(Age 12 and over) --John McLay

It is fun to spend time with Georgia, as always!! I enjoyed this installment just as much as the previous ones, if not more! This series reads like episodes of a light hearted sitcom. Some of the situations that Georgia gets herself into are full of hilariosity, but still very believable. The writin...
Robbie left! And hello, new lead singer. That's all I can really remember from this book as they concentrate more on character and humour than plot. But the humour carries it as always, I dare you to read the part where her false eyelashes stick together and she has to dance blind to the bathroom an...
Robbie's left and Georgia is heartbroken. He's chosen wombats over her or something. While she is in heartbreak, Georgia meets Masimo, who is the new singer of the Stiff Dylans. And he is gorgey! The Sex God may have left, but the Dreamboat has most definitely sailed in. Robbie's gone in this book...
What’s left to say about Georgia and her boy troubles, really?The Sex God has left the country, but in comes The Love God instead.. An Italian/American combo. I don’t really know where the American part is though, because he talks English with quite an accent..I have to say I really like Dave the La...
That was another great book in this series. Georgia is wonderful and absolutely silly.Also I love the book title. Really creative.
