Conhecimento Comum



Ultimately, not a lot happens in this story and nothing is truly resolved; it is just a weeks-long snapshot of the life of an English 16-year-old girl. The pleasure comes from Georgia's narrative voice and her highly idiosyncratic use of the Queen's English (if such it can be called). Think "Bertie Wooster as a modern teen-ager". The audiobook is read by the author, so I know what I heard was absolutely authentic in terms of what she wanted us to hear.

This was my second time reading this and wow, it was so much better this time than last, can't wait to read the rest.

The first in the series. This book made me laugh out loud. I read the paperback which was wonderful, and I read the audiobook, and the narrator was wonderful. Not entirely a deep book, but it captures the mind of a typical teenage female. Quick read, light-hearted, and very funny.
