She’s baaack…

Love is a Many Trousered Thing by Louise Rennison

Georgia Nicholson is back in her usual formosity again, along with her mates the Ace Gang, Dave the Laugh, and of course Masimo, the Luuuurve God. But what makes her new adventures even more confusioso is the fact that someone else is back as well, the Sex God! That’s right! Robbie is back from Kiwi-a-gogo land, just in time to turn Georgia’s life upside down. Not to mention that Mutti & Vati are their usual terminally insane best, along with crazy Libby. Add to that the fact that Angus and his cross-eyed son Gordy are up to their usual antics terrorizing Mr. & Mrs. Next Door, and Wet Lindsay is stalking the Sex God and Stalag 17’s German teacher is making them all go on a camping trip and…pant, pant…

Laugh until you hurt as Georgia tries to maintain her image as cool Sex Kitty while trying to juggle her snogging possibilities in Love is a Many Trousered Thing by Louise Rennison.
