Write a recommendation of the book Louise Rennison has kept Georgia loveable. Now, in her seventh book Georgia is just hilarious. Startled by his Furry Shorts is a fabulous addition to the Georgia Nicolson series that shows a more mature side of Georgia as she deals with heartbreak, and trying to move on. This book is a Laugh-till-you-fall humor laced with fun that will keep you reading long into the night!
I think that Louise Rennison is a fantastic and witty author, and she clearly has perfect understanding of the mind of many teenage girls! Georgia is a relatable character. There were many positives in the story and I would recommend every teenage girl to read this book.
Give a summary of the book This book is about Georgia Nicolson. Georgia Nicolson is not in a happy place regarding her love life. She’s stuck in more ways. According to Georgia, she’s not only on the rack of romance, but in the cake shop of agony, the oven of luuurve, and the bakery of pain. It’s all because of the Italian, Masimo. The man who has knocked the Sex God – aka Robbie, a little bit, out of her mind, and taken her heart, as well as in the band the Stiff Dylans, as their new singer. She’s not completely over her first love, Robbie, who left her to “snog with marsupials” inNew Zealand. And her friend, Dave the Laugh, appears to have a crush on Georgia, but she has no idea how to handle it. But Georgia has made the mistake of a lifetime. She finally decided to let Masimo become her one and only. But he tells her that he needs to think about it. Whenever a guy uses the words “I need to think about it,” he can’t be thinking anything good. This is why Georgia is on the rack of romance. To distract herself from thinking about Masimo and the fact that he may not call her, or even want to be with her romantically, Georgia has thrown herself into MacUseless (Macbeth) play rehearsals, and she is in the middle of helping her friend Rosie to plan a Viking wedding. The only problem is that Dave the Laugh is around more than ever, with MacUseless rehearsals, and Georgia wants to kiss him more and more. If only Masimo would just give her the news, she could spend all of her time kissing him, or at least dreaming about kissing him. Georgia’s love life is chaotic. The end is quite surprising. She doesn’t have any feelings for Masimo anymore, but an other man shows up. In the end Robbie shows up, the sex god from Kiwi-a-gogo land. The story ends when Georgia sees Robbie. The last sentence from the book is: ‘’The sex god has re-landed’’.
Explain theme and motif The theme of this book is love and teenage life. The book is all about love and how to handle it when you’re a teenager. The book is really funny. Besides that it also has something to do with making choices in your life. Georgia is dealing with a dilemma where she has to make a choice between three guys. Gerogia compares the three boys to find out who’s good for her. She’s on the track of love or as Georgia says luuuuuurveeeeee. It may sound a little bit as a cliche but it isn’t. Georgia uses funny words to discribe everything. It was really fun to read and I really enjoyed it!
Example from the book: ‘ I can’t believe I am once more on the rack of romance. And also in the oven of luuuuurve. And possibly on my way to the bakery of pain.And maybe even going to stop along the way to get a little cake at the cake shop of agony. Shut up, brain. Shut up.’’
Write a catch phrase for the book (those short sentences you often see on the back of the book). How to handle 3 guys, you’ll laugh your knickers off!
