Rennison, Louise. Dancing in my nuddy-pants; even further confessions of Georgia Nicolson.
The irrepressible Georgia is back, and that's cause for celebration for fans of her previous, hilarious titles, Angus, Thongs, and Full-Frontal Snogging, On the Bright Side, I'm Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God, and Knocked Out by My Nunga-Nungas (the first two are reviewed in paperback in this issue). In diary form. Georgia brings us up to date on the doings of her friends and family, her school ("Stalag 14"), and her boyfriend, aka "the Sex God," though all they do is "snog" (kiss). She is however fighting an attraction to Dave the Laugh as well, while keeping busy playing pranks (such as releasing the biology class's locusts in the caretaker's shack), visiting Paris with her classmates, bravely snitching on a group of bullies at schools, being a hockey captain, and keeping her wildcat Angus from terrorizing the neighborhood even more than usual.
Much of the fun here is in the telling, as Georgia creates her own vocabulary: the U.S. is "Hamburger-a-gogo land." for example. A funny glossary at the end helps Americans with the British slang. Georgia may lack "great dignosity," as she puts it. but she is always "fabbity fab fab" and unfailingly entertaining. Great silly fun, but you need to read the other titles first to fully appreciate this one.
