Overview

Time to gird the loins and pucker up.

Blimey O'Reilly's trousers! Three maybe-boyfriends is a lot for any girl to handle—red-bottomed or not. What with Robbie the Sex God back from Kiwi-a-gogo land wanting to "get coffee" and whatsit, Masimo the Luuurve God saying things like "Ciao, Georgia, see you later" (the good see-you-later or the bad see-you-later??), and her mate Dave the Laugh snogging her in a pond, it's enough to make any girl mad.

Good thing she has the ace gang to keep her sane. Ish.

But now that she has tearfully eschewed Robbie the Sex God with a firm hand, Georgia is left with two potential snoggees to choose from, and it's high time she left the cakeshop of love for good. This time with a gorgey Italian cakey. Or a nip-libbling Dave the Tart. But certainly not both. Maybe.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Robyn Guedel
Jas, Rosie, Angus, and the gang are back in Georgia's latest diary confessions from across the pond. She begins her newest journey on a camping trip, announcing that she is officially the girlfriend of Masimo, aka "the Luuurve God." Many hijinks ensue as Georgia tries to convince her parents that she must go visit her main man in Italy. The plot thickens when beloved family member Angus suffers a terrible accident. Georgia must choose between nursing her kitty, traveling to far off places to snog (kiss), or exploring her career as a backup dancer. As with her other books, Rennison provides readers with a large glossary of terms that are used throughout the book to help readers interpret Georgia's diary slang. Rennison keeps the plot interesting with a love triangle and tension between Georgia's parents. Teens will enjoy the detailed dance instructions that are included at the end from the main character's new career path. Although she is on her ninth series book, the author keeps things fresh with new drama and her usual hilarious wit. Reviewer: Robyn Guedel
School Library Journal

Gr 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

Stop in the Name of Pants!

Chapter One

Deep in the forest of red bottomosity

Saturday July 30th
Camping fiasco
11:30 p.m.

In my tent of shame.

Again.

The rest of my so-called pals are still out in the woods with the "lads" and I have crept back to the campsite aloney. I can hear snoring from Miss Wilson's tent and also Herr Kamyer's. I bet there will be a deputation of voles coming along shortly to complain that they can't get any sleep because of the racket.

11:32 p.m.
I'm going to forget about everything and just go to sleep in my lovely sleeping bag. On the lovely soft ground. Not. It's like sleeping on an ironing board. And I do know what that is like, actually.

11:33 p.m.
I said coming on this school camping trip would be a fiasco of a sham and I was not wrong.

11:34 p.m.
I was right.

11:35 p.m.
I wonder what the others are doing?

11:36 p.m.
Anyway, the main thing is that I am now, officially, the girlfriend of a Luuurve God. And therefore I have put my red bottom behind me with a firm hand. I will never again be found wandering lonely as a clud into the cakeshop of luuurve. Or picking up some other éclair or tart or fondant fancy. Ditto Eccles cakes and Spotty Dick or . . . shut up, brain.

11:37 p.m.
So speaking as the official girlfriend of a Luuurve God who has put my red bottom behind me with a firm hand and who will never be wandering around looking for extra cakes, can someone tell me this. . . .

How in the name of God's panty hose have I ended up snogging Dave the Laugh?Also known as Dave the tart.

two minutes later
Oh goddy god god. And let us face facts. It wasn't just a matey type snog. You know, not a—"It's alright mate, I'm just a mate accidentally snogging another mate,"—sort of snog.

It was, frankly and to get to the point and not beat around the whatsit, a "phwoar" snogging situation.

thirty seconds later
In fact it was deffo No. 4 and about to be No 5.

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.

one minute later
I mean, I am practically married to Masimo the Luuurve God.

ten seconds later
Well, give or take him actually asking me to marry him.

five seconds later
And the fact that he has gone off to Pizza-a-gogo land on holiday and left me here in Merrie but dangerous England to fend for myself. Being made to go on stupid school camping trips with madmen (Miss Wilson and Herr Kamyer).

He has left me here, wandering around defenseless in the wilderness near Ramsgate, miles away from the nearest Topshop.

three seconds later
And how can I help it if Dave the Laugh burrows into my tent? Because that is more or less what happened.

That is le fact.

I was snuggling down under some bit of old raincoat (or sleeping bag, as Jas would say in her annoying oooh isn't it fun outdoors sort of way) . . . anyway, where was I? Oh yes, I was snuggling down earlier tonight after an action-packed day of newt drawing when there was tap tap tapping on the side of the tent. I thought it might have been an owl attack but it was Dave the Laugh and his Barmy Army (Tom, Declan, Sven and Edward) enticing us out into the forest with their promise of snacks and light entertainment.

four seconds later
I blame Dave entirely for this. He and I are just mates and I have a boyfriend and he has a girlfriend and that is that, end of story. Not, because then he comes to the countryside looking for me and waving his horn about.

We were frolicking about in the lads' tent, and Dave and me went off for an innocent walk in the woods. You know, like old matey type mates do. But then I put my foot down a bloody badger hole or something and fell backward into the river. Anyway, Dave was laughing like a loon for a bit but then he reached down and put his arms around me to lift me up the riverbank and I said, "I think I may have broken my bottom."

And he was really smiling and then he said, "Oh bugger, it has to be done."

And he snogged me.

When he stopped I pushed him backward and looked at him. I was giving him my worst look.

He said, "What?"

I said, "You know what. Don't just say 'what' like that."

"Like what?"

I said with enormous dignitosity, "Look, you enticed me with your shenanigans and, erm, puckering stuff."

He said, "Erm, I think you will find that you agreed to come to my tent in the middle of the night to steal me from my girlfriend."

I said, "It was you that snogged me."

He looked at me and then he sighed. "Yeah, I know. I don't feel very good about this. I'm not so . . . well, you're used to it."

My head nearly exploded. "I'm used to what??"

He looked quite angry, which felt horrible. I'd seen him angry with me before and I didn't usually like what he had to say. He went on: "You started all this sounding the horn business ages ago, using me like a decoy duck and then going out with Robbie, then messing about with me and then going out with Masimo. And then telling me that you felt mixed up."

I just looked at him.

I felt a bit weepy, actually. I might as well be wet at both ends.

    Watch out, mates! Georgia Nicolson has returned, and she definitely hasn't learned from her past mistakes. <BR/><BR/>Aside from trying to survive in the woods with all the creatures and (apparently) pigs roaming around, Georgia just got herself in a pickle when Dave the Laugh/Tart ended up kissing her when she fell. What makes it even worse, besides the fact that Dave has a girlfriend, is that Georgia just so happened to have recently become the girlfriend of the Italian Stallion. <BR/><BR/>It's a good thing that Massimo is miles away, because he would have gone bonkers if he found out what had happened. It's another thing that he hasn't called ever since he left. <BR/><BR/>Sure, she is stuck with two potential boyfriends, but what else is knew? Georgia must choose between the two before she ends up all by herself. <BR/><BR/>Aside from her boy troubles, her Mutti and Vati are continuing to fight and it's getting even worse, especially when Vati is changing his appearance into something no one should ever have to lay their eyes on. And before going back to Stalag 14, Georgia must have the best time ever with her mates, hopefully using most of her time not thinking about who she needs to choose between. <BR/><BR/>Who knew someone like Georgia could get into even more trouble? Wait, we all did! <BR/><BR/>The previous novels in the series have been absolutely hilarious, and STOP IN THE NAME OF PANTS! is no exception. The laughs keep on coming in this installment, and Georgia is crazier than ever. A series that you could never get tired of, it should come with a caution note on it: Warning, may cause hysterical laughter and odd looks from passerby when read in public!

    More tart goodness!

    I have loved this series from the get-go. The characters are laugh-out-loud funny. Although I have to admit that I'm ready for all the back and forth between boys to be done with.

    STOP! In the name of Pants

    What a perfect name. This series makes me laugh, it's such a good escape from the everyday world. I laughed, I cried... I luurved the way Georgia talks and she's so candid. I would definitely be friends with her and the ace gang if i went to stalag 14 with them. It's a light read and just enjoyable.

    I've read these books for years and years and by far, this one made me snort more than any of the others. It had it all! I even cried a bit, as you all would had you been me or are reading le book. Ah the boys! Crickey they are soooo utterly utterly cool. I am, always have been completely in love and a fan club high member of Dave the Laugh. I can't wait for the next one! Is it a year yet?!

    Louise does it AGAIN!!!!!!!

    This is the 9th book in the fabulous Confesssions of Georgia Nicolson series.
    Of course, Georgia is obviously trying to find her perfect boyfriend.
    She must choose between 2 boys, (of course you know in the last one 1 of them has been eliminated. I am not disclosing their names, because if you have not read the last 1 and are reading this, I don't want to spoil it for you.) She also must deal with her huge cat, Angus, and her parents annnoying arguments, and her crazy little sister (Libby. Georgia of course doesn't mature very much, but if she did, that would completely spoil everything. Okay, well, if she has matured, it is only about a thimble-full of maturosity.
    THis book is vair funny (like all the others) and I highly reccomend it. DOn't quit at the 8th or the7th or the 6th or the 5th or at any book unlesss you can't stand it. Accomplish SOMETHING in life. They are amazing,so you probably won't have to worrry about hating them, especially if you are reading this.
    So long, Louise Rennison fans!!!!!!!!

    I can't wait for the next book!

    Georgia Nicholson's diary tells you about her hilarious, dramatic, crazy life. Although the ending leaves you hanging a little too far on the edge, I recommend this book to everyone who has read any of Louise Rennison's Georgia Nicholson series. There is love, friendship, and lots of laughing at her humorous stories of how she manages between her three maybe boyfriends.

    oh, dear, i have to say i have never laughed that hard! all these books are Gods gift to women. Georgia is so out there it makes you want to look back on your life and ask yourself "whose the guy in the cargo pants." My friends and i have to refrain from reading them in public because the laughing factor hits number ten. THe way things left off have you begging for the next one! YYYYYEEEAAAAHHHH!

    Oh man, this book was marvy. It made me laugh, it almost made me cry (i stayed strong), it made me angry (wet lindsay), and most of all it surprised me at the end! It was one of the best books of the series so much went on. I love the Gerogia and Masimo relationship, i really hope it turns out well for them in the next book!! I can't wait for the drama to continue!

    I'm voting 4 D. the L.

    Why does Georgia not realize Dave is meant to be her one and only. oh well she'll find out eventually. I started crying when i thought that Angus died. Maybe Libby should live with Grandad and Maisie, and Uncle Eddie, Dear Got In Himmel. that is all i have 2 say.

    These books are all amazing and number 9 definately delivers. If you love Georgia at all, then take the plunge and buy this book. It of course leaves off with another cliffhanger, but I can't wait for the next one. It also includes an unexpected bit in the middle that made me cry a little.

    I started reading this series when it first came out and I have always been excited when a new one comes out. Every book is funny even though there are some sad parts. I am dying to read this and find out if Georgia chooses Massimo or Dave. You should probbably read the previous books in this series before reading this one, otherwise you will be very confused
