The Confessions of Georgia Nicolson is a popular
chick lit series for teenage girls, written by Louise Rennison.
It is the diary of a teenage girl, Georgia, as she complains
about school, is attracted to good-looking boys and is
frustrated with the strangeness of the rest of her family
(consisting of her mother, father, younger sister Libby and her
crazy cats, Angus and Gordy).
The first novel in the series, Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal
Snogging, describes her as a fourteen-year old girl without,
but seeking, a boyfriend in her English community. As the series
progresses, she begins to have more potential boyfriends, ending
up with three regular contenders for the job, nicknamed the Sex
God, the Italian Stallion and Dave the Laugh. In the latest
instalment 'Stop in the Name of Pants!', she has chosen which
boy she wishes to date, but still has trouble with her feelings
for others. In this confusion, readers hope to find a resolution
to this conflict in future novels in the series. The tenth and
final book in the series is set to be released 25th June 2009 in
hard back cover.

There is some debate about where the books are set. In the
second book, they mention catching a bus to Deansgate, which is
an area of Manchester in the North West of England, and which
features an all boys and an all girls high school situated
across the road from each other (Manchester High School for
Girls and Manchester Grammar School). However, other signals
point to the books being set in Brighton on Englands South
coast, such as the fact they always meet by the clock tower and
that they regularly go to Churchill Square, a popular shopping
centre in Brighton, and this is where Louise Rennison currently
lives. Georgia and her friends also go camping in Ramsgate,
which is in the South East of England, and, when Georgia is
coming back from a holiday in Scotland, she talks about 'nodding
off for the whole of the Midlands'.
Georgia is fifteen through out all the books and although
this is not specified we can tell this by the fact she mentions
she is year 10. In the latest book, Stop in the Name of
Pants!, she progresses to year 11.
The series is made up of nine novels, the most recent of

The movie, Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, is
based on the first and second novels. Gurinder Chadha is the
director, and there are plans to make further movies based on
the books depending on the success of the first movie, which was
recently released on DVD. 'Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging'
was released on the 25th of July 2008(UK) and is produced by
Paramount and Nickelodeon Pictures.
I think Louise Rennison is a great writer and I love her books and there nice and easy to read as well.
Our understanding is that a paperback comes out 3
months to over a year later after publication of the hardback
edition. The more popular the longer the wait.
when is the last book coming out in paper back ?
