VOYARennison's fans will not be disappointed by her newest volume of the confessions of Georgia Nicolson. Georgia is having a total love (or "luuurve" in Georgia-speak) crisis. Her guitar-playing Original Sex God is out of the picture in Kiwi-a-go-go land, and she will not even mention his name. Dave the Laugh, her sometimes "mate" and all-around good guy, seems to be stringing her along in a he-loves-me-he-loves-me-not cycle, complete with some awfully good snogging. To top it off, the Italian luuurve god Masimo has apparently dumped her for stick-legged Wet Lindsay. If that was not bad enough, everyone around her is pairing off. Jas and Tom are joined at the waist, and Rosie and Sven are planning a full-out Viking wedding. Funny, a little raunchy, and with a much-needed glossary at the end, Georgia's intimate and quick diary entries take readers to the heart of teenaged love angst with all the trimmings. Every character is seen through Georgia's slightly skewed perspective, so no one is safe from her uncensored commentary. Add in a school production of MacUseless (Macbeth for the uninitiated) with a bit of cross-dressing and fur, and the story has all the elements of a farce. With a cliff-hanger of an ending, book eight better be on the way soon.
