Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging.

Louise Rennison. 1999/2001. Read by Stina Nielsen. 4 tapes, 5 hrs. Recorded Books. #96771. 0-7887-9416-7. $36.00. Vinyl binder; plot, reader notes. JS*

This hilarious diary of 14-year-old Georgia Nicolson during a year in which her father goes off to Australia seeking a job, her half-wild cat Angus terrorizes the neighbor, boys and sex are uppermost on her mind, and friendships are fragile, is perfectly performed by Nielsen. She really gets into the head of a young teen, reading in a breathless style, voicing the characters, and delivering a hilarious rendition. For American listeners, it might have been more helpful to read the glossary of Britishisms before rather than at the end of the book, but this still doesn't take away from a marvelous job.
