Ultimately, not a lot happens in this story and nothing is truly resolved; it is just a weeks-long snapshot of the life of an English 16-year-old girl. The pleasure comes from Georgia's narrative voice and her highly idiosyncratic use of the Queen's English (if such it can be called). Think "Bertie Wooster as a modern teen-ager". The audiobook is read by the author, so I know what I heard was absolutely authentic in terms of what she wanted us to hear.

The first in the series. This book made me laugh out loud. I read the paperback which was wonderful, and I read the audiobook, and the narrator was wonderful. Not entirely a deep book, but it captures the mind of a typical teenage female. Quick read, light-hearted, and very funny.
