Knocked Out by My Nunga-Nungas

Author: Louise Rennison
Series: Confessions of Georgia Nicolson #3
Rating: 3 / 5 Stars
Verdict: Buy

And so the circus continues!  The Loonleader (AKA Vati) has returned from Kiwi-a-gogo land with horrible timing.  For one, he is interested in Georgia's life and she is not interested in sharing it (especially since she is freshly suspended from school).  For two, the rents decide his return is a perfect excuse for a family vacation since they did not make the trip down to Kiwi-a-gogo to visit him.  So Georgia is off to Och Aye land with the fam, even though she swears she will not be dragged kicking and screaming away from the Sex God, who is showing interest in her again.

Even with all the hysteria of Libby and Angus and even Jock McThick, the beginning part of this book was the slowest.  The real waterworks (from laughing so hard, that is) do not commence until Georgia lands back at Stalag 14 with the rest of the Ace Gang.

Once home, Georgia faces conflicting feelings.  She is, of course, madly in love with the SG who she can't seem to form a coherent thought around.  Not that it matters, because all she wants to do is snog him senseless (even though she is afraid her lips will puff to Angelina Jolie proportions from overuse).  But then tack on to that the fact that Ellen starts to date Dave the Laugh and Georgia begins to feel.... what is that?  Jealousy?  Well, that is where it gets really good.  Throw in phone conversations with Jas, and forget it.  I couldn't pick out my favorite line if you wanted because it's pretty much a nonstop laugh riot from there on out.  It just takes a while to get there.

My memory is not what it used to be, so I don't remember what happens in the next installment, but I have a feeling I will enjoy it more than this one as Georgia continues to deliberate between the god and the laugh.
