Overview

Georgia Nicolson has started dating the Sex God (aka Robbie). So life should be perfect . . . except in Georgia's life, nothing is ever perfect. Her cat, Angus (the size of a small Labrador), is terrorizing the neighborhood. Her sister, Libby (who is slightly mad), hides her pooey knickers at the bottom of Georgia's bed.

Then the Sex God breaks it off because she's too young. It's time for a plan. It's time for a Red Herring. It's time for Georgia to become a "heartless boy magnet!"

Fourteen-year-old Georgia continues her diary in which she records her misadventures trying to reclaim the attention of seventeen-year-old Robbie, while coping with her friends, family, and dog-like cat Angus at the same time.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
You don't have to be a teenager to appreciate the humorous and often self-absorbed ravings found in 14-year-old Georgia Nicolson's diary, but it certainly helps. Now fans of Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging -- Georgia's first set of hilarious musings on life -- can get another peek into the mind of this wryly inquisitive English lass in the appealing sequel: On the Bright Side, I'm Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God.

As the title implies, Georgia has snagged herself a sex god in the form of Robbie, the boy of her dreams. Now that they've indulged in a bit of "full-frontal snogging," Georgia turns her attention to advancing the relationship. But things quickly go wrong when she learns that her father's new job may necessitate a move to New Zealand. Crestfallen, Georgia feels her life might as well be over. Then, miraculously, the dreaded move is cancelled, and things seem to be getting better -- at least until 17-year-old Robbie decides to break up with Georgia because he's bothered by the difference in their ages.

Borrowing freely from her mum's closet and advice books, even as she's steadfastly discounting everything her mum says, a crushed but determined Georgia comes up with a scheme to win Robbie back. As usual, nothing goes as planned, and life is further complicated by Georgia's temperamental cat, Angus (who's having a few amorous leanings of his own), and her baby sister, Libby, whose fascination with (and lack of control over) her bodily functions leads to several intriguing mishaps. Of course, there are other disasters, too: a quick-tan lotion that turns Georgia's legs orange, a run-in with the aptly named Bummer sisters, and friends who insist on focusing on their own problems from time to time.

Who knew the angst of adolescence could be so much fun? This Georgia's-eye view of teenage life is wonderfully egocentric and side-splittingly funny. And despite the occasional language barrier (a glossary of terms is provided in the back of the book), Georgia's thoughts and experiences will prove universally recognizable to anyone who is, or has ever been, a teenager.

"Georgia Nicolson's laugh-a-minute narration picks up right where it left off in Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging," said PW in a starred review. "Fans will not be disappointed." Ages 10-up. (May) Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Fans of Rennison's debut, Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging, will not be disappointed with this hilarious sequel. Georgia Nicolson's laugh-a-minute narration picks up right where it left off. Vati (as she affectionately calls her father) is off working in "Kiwi-a-gogo land" (New Zealand), and Georgia fears that she will lose the Sex God (Robbie) if she and her family are forced to join Vati. But even when an accident at work ensures that Vati will return and the family will not have to relocate, Georgia loses the Sex God anyway. In a letter, he tells her that she "seem[s] so young" and recommends that she date his younger brother's "really nice mate called Dave. He's a good laugh." So Georgia promptly nicknames the fellow "Dave the Laugh" and sets out to attract him as a way of making SG (Sex God) jealous. Some comical subplots involve Georgia's Mutti (mother) flirting with a George Clooney-look-alike doctor in Vati's absence, Angus's obsession with a Burmese pedigree cat across the street and the reappearance of SG ("I opened the door./ It was the Sex God./ At my door./ Looking like a Sex God./ At my door./ The Sex God had landed at my door./ I was wearing my Teletubbies pajamas"). Will Georgia go for the looks and "retrap" the Sex God? Or will she go for the laughs and end up with Dave? Stay tuned for the next installment. Ages 12-up. (Apr.)

Children's Literature
Hailed as the Bridget Jones of teens, Georgia Nicolson is back in this long anticipated sequel. Diary entries reveal the trials and tribulations of this often caustic and self-centered teen. With the family slated to move to New Zealand, Georgia plunges into despair. It will mean leaving behind sex god Robbie and his fab, fab, snogging (kissing). When Robbie reveals that she is to young for him Georgia campaigns to prove her "maturiosity" and "glaciosity". Georgia continues to suffer her embarrassing parents, tenderly tolerate her little sister, and adore her persnickety cat Angus. Her blunt distain for lesbians and her fixation on the size of breasts (her own and evryone else's) can be irritating but is oh so credible considering her youth. Short on plot but long on appeal for the middle school set, kids will eagerly devour Georgia's hilarious misadventures. A glossary of British slang written in Georgia's inimitable style will clear up any confusion with Britshisms. 2001, HarperCollins, $15.95. Ages 12 to 14. Reviewer: Beverley Fahey
VOYA
Georgia is back for another round of snogging—kissing, to the uninitiated—her new boyfriend, whom she has dubbed SG, for sex god. She also must deal with the antics of her family members, both the human ones and the fearsome feline, Angus. This sequel fulfills the promise of Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging (HarperCollins, 2000/VOYA June 2000), again providing readers a glimpse into Georgia's diary in which she alternately rails against the injustice of her parents' decision to move to New Zealand, worries over the size of her "basoomas," and despairs that she will ever get past snogging level eight. When her SG boyfriend suggests that he is too old for her and tries to introduce her to a more suitable guy, Georgia must devise a plan to lure him back. With the help of her mates and the unwitting cooperation of her mother, Georgia just might succeed. What works here is the remarkably clarion voice of the protagonist. She speaks her mind; she is quick to comment and slow to censor her words even if they might be hurtful. Georgia will say and do most anything to keep her boyfriend. In short, she is a fairly typical teen. This realistic portrayal sometimes might cause the reader to wince. Georgia says and does what she thinks is right, many times without regard to the consequences. She and her friends are catty in their observations about peers, parents, and teachers. Their irrepressible conversations are sure to ring true for many readers.

KLIATT
To quote from the review of the hardcover in KLIATT, July 2001: Rennison follows up her hilarious Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging with these new entries from 14-year-old Georgia's fictional journal. Here she must contend with the ups and downs of her relationship with the boyfriend whom she refers to as Sex God (though kissing is as far as they get) as well as the antics of her vicious Scottish wildcat Angus, the tribulations of living with a little sister who likes to suck on Georgia's nose, her dim friends who are irritatingly absorbed in their own problems rather than hers, teachers who don't appreciate her pranks, and of course her relatives ("Honestly, what planet do these people live on? And why isn't it farther away?"). This fast and delightful read is a sort of Bridget Jones's Diary for the younger set. A funny glossary at the end will help American readers understand Georgia's British slang, from "footie" for soccer to "snogging" for kissing. This novel in journal form is a real treat, or as Georgia would say, "fabbity fab fab."

School Library Journal
Gr 7-9-This sequel to Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging (HarperCollins, 2000) hilariously captures the obsessions and lifestyle of a 14-year-old. Georgia has a mad crush on 17-year-old Robbie, the SG, Sex God, and the story turns on her moment-by-moment fantasies about him and how she might snare him. The narrative unfolds in diary form, in which she reveals the nuances of her daily dramas at school, at home with her mother and younger sister, with her best friend, and with her surrogate boyfriend. Set in England, Georgia's story gathers humor from her quirky use of language and English slang. In fact, readers can refer to the glossary to check on the meanings of words like "snogging" (kissing), "gob" (mouth), and "lippy" (lipstick). On the Bright Side is a funny romp through the intricacies of one especially explosive period of growing up and will be devoured by girls on the brink of becoming teenagers and those who are living in the thick of it now.-Mara Bright, Mark's Meadow School, Amherst, MA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Readers were first introduced to Georgia's diary in Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging (A Printz Honor, 2001, not reviewed). Her saga continues here as her mother announces that Georgia's father has found work in New Zealand and they'll be moving in a week. While Georgia tries to make her mother realize that she'll have to be left behind, further disaster strikes: her new boyfriend the SG (Sex God) decides he's too old for her and suggests she might try his younger brother's friend Harry. Thus is launched Operation Elastic Band, in which Harry the Laugh becomes the red-herring with which she'll win back the SG. And does she? Readers will fall right in step with Georgia's up-and-down 14-year-old monologue. "I didn't take any chances with the nipple department; I wore a bra and a vest. Let them get out of that if they could. I must be calm. Om. Om. OhmyGodohmyGodohmyGod." The glossary at the end will help with the British slang, though most of it is understandable from context. Readers don't need to have read the first book to be caught right up in the engaging melodrama, but they'll probably want to read it after they've finished this one. It ends, as did its predecessor, abruptly and on a leading tone, suggesting a third. This fun romp will give young-teenage readers someone to laugh at and cheer for, and should make adults cry for joy . . . at not being 14 anymore. (Fiction. 12-15)

Read an Excerpt

Chapter One

july
the sex god has landed...

sunday July 16th my room

6:00 P.M.

Staring out of my bedroom window at other people having a nice life.

Who would have thought things could be so unbelievably pooey? I'm only fourteen and my life is over because of the selfishosity of-so-calledgrown-ups. I said to Mum, "You are ruining my life. Just because yours is practically over there is no reason to take it out on me."

But as usual when I say something sensible and meaningful she just tutted and adjusted her bra like a Russian roulette player. (Or do I mean disco thrower? I don't know and, what's more, I don't care.)

If I counted up the number of times I've been tutted at, I could open a tutting shop. It's just not fair.... How can my parents take me away from my mates and make me go to New Zealand? Who goes to New Zealand?

In the end, when I pointed out how utterly useless as a mum she was, she lost her rag and SHOUTED at me.

"Go to your room right now!"

I said, "All right, I'll go to my ROOM!! I WILL go to my room!! And do you know what I'll be doing in my room? No you don't, so I'll tell you! I'll be just BEING in my room. That's all. Because there is nothing else to do!!!!!"

Then I just left her there. To think about what she has done.

Unfortunately it means that I am in my bed and it is only six o'clock.

7:00 p.m.

On the bright side I am now the girlfriend of a Sex God.

7:15 p.m.

On the dark side, the Sex God doesn't know his new girlfriend is going to be forced to go to the other (useless) side of the universe in a week's time.

Oh Robbie,where are you now? Well, I know where you are now actually, but is this any time to go away unexpectedly on a footie trip?

7:18 p.m.

I can't believe that after all the time it has taken to trap the SG, all the makeup I have had to buy, the trailing about, popping up unexpectedly when he was out anywhere . . . all that planning gone to waste. I finally get him to snog me (number six) and he says, "Let's see each other but keep it quiet for a bit." And at that moment, with classic poo timing, Mutti says, "We're off to New Zealand next week."

My eyes are all swollen up like mice eyes from crying. Even my nose is swollen. It's not small at the best of times, but now it looks like I've got three cheeks. Marvelous. Thank you, God.

9:00 p.m.

I'll never get over this.

9:10 p.m.

Time goes very slowly when you are suicidal.

9:15 p.m.

I put sunglasses on to hide my tiny mincers. They are new ones that Mum bought me in a pathetic attempt to interest me in going to Kiwi-a-gogo land. They looked quite cool, actually. I looked a bit like one of those French actresses who smoke Gauloise and cry a lot in-between snogging Gerard Depardieu. I tried a husky French accent in the mirror.

"And zen when I was, how you say? une teenager, mes parents, mes tres, tres horriblement parents, take me to Nouvelle Zelande. Ahh merde!"

At which point I heard Mum coming up the stairs and had to leap into bed. She popped her head round the door and said, "Georgie ... are you asleep?"

I didn't say anything. That would teach her.

As she left she said, I wouldn't sleep in the sunglasses if I were you, they might get embedded in your head."

What kind of parenting was that? Mum's medical knowledge was about as good as Dad's DlY. And we had all seen his idea of a shed. Before it fell down on Uncle Eddie.

Eventually I was drifting off into a tragic sleep when I heard shouting coming from next door's garden. Mr. and Mrs. Next Door were out there, banging and shouting and throwing things about. Is this really the time for noisy gardening? They have no consideration for those who might want to sleep because they have tragedy in their life.

mucho excitemondo police raid

12:10 a.m.

When the doorbell rang I shot out of bed and looked down the stairs. Mum had opened the door wearing a nightdress that you could quite easily see through. Even if you didn't want to. Which I didn't. There was a policeman standing at the door, holding a sack up in front of him at arm's length and his trousers were shredded round the ankles.

"is this your bloody cat?" he inquired, not very politely for a public servant.

Mum said, "Well, I...er."

I ran down the stairs and went to the door.

"Good evening, constable. This cat, is it about the size of a small labrador?"

He said, "Yes."

    Georgia makes me laugh

    Okay, so On the Bright Side, I'm Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God picks up almost exactly where Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging left off (two days later to be specific). As Georgia continues her diary, she is very disillusioned by the prospect of going to visit her father in New Zealand on "the other (useless) side of the universe" instead of having time to spend (snogging) with Robbie--the Sex God.

    Like the first book in this series, this one basically just follows a few months in Georgia's life. Mayhem continues to follow Georgia as she and her friend devise new Beret-wearing methods at school among other kinds of mischief. This includes some chaos on the hockey field (the first book featured a rather disastrous tennis match). Rennison writes Georgia as a bit of a spaz--always thinking about herself and her appearance, heaping scorn upon Robbie's more studious ex--so it's nice to see her being athletic without really trying and without any ulterior motive.

    Meanwhile, Georgia also has to figure out how to get back in Robbie's good graces when he once again decides that she is too young for him. Part of her plan? Maturiosity and Glaceriosity. Yes.

    Basically anything funny that came up in the first book has been revisited in this one. A personal favorite: Georgia's continued bewilderment when faced with the phrase "see you later." (Does it mean "see you later" or something else? No one knows.) There are a lot of developments in this volume in terms of inter-character relations (Georgia, her friends, Robbie, and so on). But there isn't as much intra-character development. Again. By the end of the book, Georgia does have some new quandaries to think about (is it a problem that the SG doesn't make her laugh for instance), but it's still too early to tell if her new introspection will lead to a bit of enlightenment.

    By the time I read this book (in a day), I was basically over my qualms about liking Georgia but feeling like I shouldn't. The plots are simple and fun, Georgia makes me laugh. It's fine.

    That said, I have noticed that, like a few other laugh-out-loud funny books for teens, this one gets a lot of the humor from Georgia having kind of low self-esteem. A running theme in both books is Georgia bemoaning her ugliness as a result of her large nose. It doesn't really impact the story, or send any message about beauty ideals or anything, I just wish Georgia could be a little more sure of herself. All of her friends (and snogging partners) seem to indicate that people think Georgia is pretty cool. I wish that she would figure that out as well. Maybe in the next book . . .

    What a LAUGH!

    this book made me laugh so hard i had to go to the restroom repeatedly while reading it! It is one of the most enjoyable humorous books I have ever read! Though it lacks depth and emotion, it has real heart and gut bursting laughter! The situations georgia sets herself in are unbelievably hilarious! You will definitely love this book if you are in for a great time and a giant laugh.

    On the Bright Side

    I hereby admit that I am a fan-girl of Georgia Nicolson.

    Once again, Georgia did not disappoint. This second book in Louise Rennison's all too funny series about young Georgia Nicolson - British teenager extraordinaire - was perfect. It picks up just after she has discovered that Vati (her father) will be moving her family to Kiwi-a-gogo Land (New Zealand) and thus her life is effectually over. After snagging (and snogging) the Sex God (aka Robbie) in the previous book, Georgia is still up to her old tricks - figuring out new ways to annoy her teachers, avoiding Wet Lindsay, and trying to figure out exactly what a boy means by "I'll see you later."? I really don't know how she gets into the messes she does but I can't help but enjoy every minute of her crazy life.

    Georgia's life is detailed in irreverent diary entries where she honestly lays down the good, the bad, and the ugly of teendom without ever becoming preachy or campy. She is completely self-centered but still entirely lovable in the way only teenagers can be. I love the scrapes she gets into and I love, love how she tries to explain new concepts to her friends. I about split my shorts laughing when she tried to explain to the Ace gang how Dave the Laugh will become her Red Herring. Fabbity fab fab.

    All I can say is Louise Rennison should be very careful to not be drinking anything while she comes up with some of the stuff Georgia gets herself into. I know from sad experience it shouldn't be attempted.

    GREAT LAUGHS!

    Georgia Nicolson does not fail to make me laugh very hard! She's absolutely insane. And I love it when she says all these stupid things when trying to talk to her sex god of a boyfriend. But disaster lurks!

    perfection

    This was THE funniest book of all time. I love books that make me laugh litterally out loud. It has a great combination of funnyness ( --is that a word??) and happiness and conflict. It was just SO good, that it made me sad when I finished it.

    wonderfully hilarious

    Louise Rennison's On the Bright Side, I'm now the Girlfriend of a Sex God is terribly funny and impossible to put down. 14-year-old Georgia Nicolson is faced with the ultimate problem: getting the SG (Robbie the Sex God) back. He breaks up with her through a letter saying that she is too young for him. Robbie being 17 almost 18 and Georgia a mere 14. She decides to use the new-found elastic band theory (give him some space, act like you don¿t care, and get a new boyfriend to make him jealous) to try and get the SG back. Georgia gets a new boyfriend whom she calls Dave the Laugh and discovers something I don¿t think she had expected. This book is a wonderful insight to conflicts of teenage life through Georgia Nicolson¿s eyes. On the Bright Side, I¿m now the Girlfriend of a Sex God moves along from the very first page and it¿s impossible to stop laughing until the last one.

    Even Better

    Surprisingly, this book was a lot better thatn the original one, which I think, is pretty tuff to beat. Georgia Nicolson continues her strive to be the most popular girl in school with her witty remarks to everything. So far, this series has convinced me to begin writing in a journal, which I now take part in almost everyday.

    Love Bites

    Georgia screamed at the top of her lungs, ¿I¿m not moving I refuse to!¿ The book by Louise Rennison, On the bright side I¿m now the girlfriend of a sex god is very well written. The setting of this book takes place in a very wealthy city somewhere in Europe. Some of the main characters in this book are Georgia, Jas, Georgia¿s mom and dad, Libby (Georgia¿s sister), Robbie (aka the Sex God), and Dave. This book is mainly about Georgia trying to get the SG back. She comes up with many different plans. Such as, what she calls the ¿ Elastic Band Strategy.¿ She also has some problems with the ¿Bummer Twins,¿ and ¿Wet Lindsay.¿ It¿s all about her getting the SG back, and she¿s willing to do anything to get have him again. This book is very, very funny! Especially with the remarks that Georgia says and thinks about her friends, and family. The funniest thing that she said in my opinion was when Libby walked up and gave Georgia a wet kiss. Right after she kissed her (Georgia was pretending to be asleep at the time) and she ¿woke up¿ and screamed, ¿What the heck was that for? Do you know anyone else who has a sister who is obsessed with kissing and licking peoples noses!¿ Georgia says many more funny things throughout this book it makes the book even more enjoyable. The authors writing style that helps the way the story flows. Especially her ways to slip little funny lines into a really serious part. The author makes Georgia relate to the reader in funny, but more serious ways as well. I would recommend this book to teenagers who like funny, flirty, loving, and hate all combined in one books. This book is a diary of a young teenagers life, and it can relate to all girl teens in at least one way. I think that Georgia will end up with Dave eventually, and the SG will want her back. The character Georgia reminds me of my friend Lindsey because she is so funny, and Lindsey is too! Any girl teenager who loves funny stories would love this Diary of a young teen like them.

    A very funny and witty book for teens

    This book is one that everybody should find time to read. It's about a girl, Georgia Nicolson, 14 years old, who goes through what every 14-year-old girl normally goes through. She deals with boy troubles, friendship problems, and even family problems. The whole story is told through Georgia's very own diary entries which makes it even funnier to read. From the manner in which she talks to the way that she describes herself, there isn't one part of the book that wasn't the least bit humorous. The events that take place are so realistic that I felt as though I personally got to know Georgia Nicolson as one of my best friends. That is why I reccomend this book to anybody who enjoys laughing, having a fun time reading, and making a new best friend named Georgia Nicolson.

    Double Cool with Knobs

    This series is FANTASTIC so far! I've read the first two books and this one was an awesome follow-up to the first. Georgia has the best sense of humor in the world and there's never any boring spots. This is definately a book for someone who longs for MANY laughs.
