Summary: There are six things very wrong with my life:

1. I have one of those under-the-skin spots that will never come to a head but lurk in a red way for the next two years.

2. It is on my nose

3. I have a three-year-old sister who may have peed somewhere in my room.

4. In fourteen days the summer hols will be over and then it will be back to Stalag 14 and Oberfuhrer Frau Simpson and her bunch of sadistic teachers.

5. I am very ugly and need to go into an ugly home.

6. I went to a party dressed as a stuffed olive."

Awwww this popped up as a recommendation in Audible so I had no choice! This was for sure a blast from the past. I adored these books in High School and Middle School. 

The story follows Georgia who is your atypical British teen. Heck she is your average Teen even here in the States. She has a baby sister, is annoyed by her lame parents, and is boy mad. 

These are just as hilarious even as an adult. I loved these books as a teen myself. I could relate in a lot of ways and it is just plain hilarious. Poor Georgie. Being a teen sucks.

I listened to the audio this time around (I have the book somewhere in this library of mine) and it was still good. I loved the voice actress. She sounded familiar....but I cannot remember if I heard her before. But I hope she does the rest of the series because she is fabbity fab fab! Aahhhhh youth. I miss thee. 

There are some cringey moments but overall I still really enjoyed it. I may dive into the next books...but we shall see. Someday!

I'll give this a 4 overall. This held up pretty nice I think! If you need a quick laugh and want to remember the golden years of a teen...this is the one for you.
