Dave and Julia discover that by skipping the clichés, they've actually been missing out on high school. And maybe even on love. See Kindle book

Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 8–10—When Rennison's Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging (HarperCollins, 2000) erupted in the U.S., it seemed hilarious, fresh, and outrageous. Unhappily, nine books into the enterprise, their originality has worn thin and is imitated everywhere. That's not to say that there's not a lot of fun here; no, there's just not enough to justify wading through Georgia's idiosyncratic verbosity. She has the same old problems shopping in the cakeshop of love. Dave the Laugh snogs her in the pond at camp. Her Italian Luurve God's gone to Italy and her mutti chortles at the idea of Georgia visiting him there. Jas and Rosie of the ace gang pause from their own romantic quandaries to join her in the Viking disco hornpipe extravaganza that's as crazy to imagine as it is to dance. And sadly, Angus is run over, all but given up for lost by the vet, but nourished back to health by Georgia's ministrations. This teen runs full force into life and some girls may still be following her into a merry, if confused, time. If you have such stalwarts at your library, then by all means purchase this volume. If not, then eschew it with a firm hand.—Tina Zubak, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA

Mizz 'The only snag about taking this on holiday is that it won't last long: it will be consumed without a break except for the snorting noises.

Stop in the Name of Pants finds our favorite teen Brit, Georgia Nicolson, the official girlfriend of the Luuurve God, Masimo, with only one minor problem: he's currently in Pizza-a-Go-Go Land visiting family, and she's all aloney back at homey. Oh, and Robbie (aka The Sex God) is still around and possibly interested. Oh, and erm, yeah, Georgia's accidentally gotten to #5 on the Snog Scale with Dave the Laugh...again. Which gives us plenty of drama and comedy as we follow Georgia's antics as she tries to find dignitosity in all situations.

This particular entry in the series, while still laugh out loud funny, does have a couple of major moments of seriousness that really brought me up short. One thing especially made my heart nearly stop as I was blithely reading along, laughing; Georgia must learn to deal with some things with more maturity than she's shown in the past. Luckily for us, she does and still manages to create great Nordic dance moves, too.

I received this book yesterday and despite wanting to make myself slow down, I just couldn't. I love Georgia and her mates, but I'm beginning to despair that she will ever realize that her true love is RIGHT THERE in the form of Dave the Laugh. The humor is spot on and it's always lovely to spend time with the Nicolson family and the ace gang. Love it but I'm sorely disappointed that now I must again wait a year for the next book. I am full of sadnosity.

Ah, Georgia. We all love her and this ninth installment in the series only makes that love grow. Georgia is at the top of her game and hilarious as always. I know I can always expect a good laugh reading about Georgia and this book delivered.

There is actually a bit of sadness in the middle which produced a few tears from me. I never thought I would cry reading one of these books but Louise Rennison decided to change it up on us. Even though I cried, I really enjoyed this part of the novel because it shows Georgia's life isn't always fun and games.

The tenth in the series should be another good one with a new play that Stalag 14 and the Foxwood boys will be putting on as well as plenty of boyfriend drama for Georgia. I look forward to it!

Completely disappointed and angry would be the words I would describe to how I felt after reading this book. It seems Rennison is, as I had suspected, merely churning out empty, "been there" pages and titling it as a book to gain revenue until her readership starts to decline and she has to hurriedly finish the series. I do understand that Georgia and Dave cannot start a relationship without some of the series magic being lost, but really, any progression or actual movement would have been appreciated. The jokes had been done many, many, MANY times before, the Thor dance was contrived and pretty much just the Horn dance with some slapped on extras, and what the heck is the point of Honor and Sophie, the "trainee Ace Gang" members who bring nothing at ALL to the table??
I remain faithful to reading the series purely because the earlier books were so fantastic, and Rennisons characters so hilarious, but should the next book be as draining and pointless as this one, I may have to reconsider.

If you have not started the Georgia and the Ace Gang series yet - what is wrong with you???? Wonderful silly humor had me laughing out loud, yelling Thor and HORN and developing an even bigger crush on Dave the Laugh. Can't wait for the next installment. Louise Rennison is one of my new author heroes.

Wonderful series that captures the ups and downs of true love crushes and mixes it with wonderful friendships, tears, giggles, spontaneous dancing, make-up and hormones.

Great for anglophiles and those who just need a laugh of any age. I chose my own "Dave the Laugh" years ago and this series reminds me of how wonderful it is to be young, confused by raging hormones and in love. And if you don't try the HORN dance after this book - again, what is wrong with you!!!?? :)

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First off, this book has been written in the everyday slang dialogues of a brit teen. If you're not fully acquainted, you may need to analyze what has been written from time to time to get a full understanding.

However, it doesn't make it any less good or interesting. With new words like 'undercrackers' - it adds a touch of delight to your read.

The book is written as a series of diary (or blog) entries, happening as frequently as "thirty seconds later."

Georgia has a few love interests throughout the book. The book's main premise are these young men. How she handles (and sometimes simply perceives) these situations is nothing short of being a drama queen. Who is a bit bossy.

It is funny. The humour is dry, which works well in a book. Here is a couple of quick snippets from random pages in the book:

ONE MINUTE LATER
When I say "gay" I don't mean gay as in an "Ooooohhh do you like my big beard?" sort of way. I mean that I was merely being cheerful.

FOUR SECONDS LATER
Anyway, shut up brain, I must think. Now is not the time for a rambling trip to Ramble land. Now is the time to put my foot down with a firm hand and stop snogging my not boyfriend Dave the Laugh.

The whole book is filled with this chatter.
