9780060853853: Startled by His Furry Shorts (Confessions of Georgia Nicolson)

On the rack of romance.

And also in the oven of luuurve.

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 cakeshop of agony.

Shut up, brain, shut up.

Georgia is in quite a predicament. Dave the Laugh has declared his love for her (at least she thinks he was talking about her), leaving her in a state of confusiosity. And then when she finally decides to give Masimo an ultimatum -- to be her one and only -- he tells her he needs to think about it.

To distract herself from her romantic woes, Georgia throws herself into Mac-Useless play rehearsals and planning a Viking wedding, and tries to avoid all thoughts of boy decoys, Italian-American dreamboats . . . and let’s not forget guitar-plucking Sex Gods!

About the Author:

Louise Rennison is the bestselling and award-winning author of the angst-filled Confessions of Georgia Nicolson. Louise lives in Brighton, the San Francisco of England (apart from the sun, Americans, the Golden Gate Bridge, and earthquakes).

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-9–Rennison's angst-filled, dramatic, and smart-aleck heroine is back in her seventh book. Nothing much has changed in her life; Georgia is still tormented by embarrassing parents, an annoying little sister, diabolical cats, and inaccessible boys. This time around, she is an unwilling participant in a school production of Macbeth. She's having a fight with her friend Jas, and the gorgeous Italian, Massimo, is playing hard to get. She is just beginning to realize, though, that the attractive, hard-to-get guys whom she usually goes for may not be for her and that her good friend Dave the Laugh might just deserve a second look. There is nothing new or outstanding about this book compared to the others in the series. Though the teen's phrases like the cakeshop of agony and the bakery of pain are funny at first, the silliness is so heavily layered throughout the novel that it eventually draws away from the action. Except for a new love interest or two, the plot hasn't progressed much since the second book. As usual, the best part is the glossary; some of Georgia's definitions are laugh-out-loud funny. No matter how similar it is to the previous books, however, many teens will want to read each and every Georgia Nicolson story to see what trouble she gets into next.–Stephanie L.
