Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison
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.

5. I am very ugly and need to go into an ugly home.
6. I went to a party dressed as a stuffed olive.

The book is the first of ten books in the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series. Georgia, a teenager, lives with her mother, father, 3-year-old sister Libby, and her wild cat, Angus, whom the family found on a holiday to Scotland. Georgia bumps into the popular and attractive Robbie the "Sex-God" , while helping her best friend, Jas, subtly stalk his brother at the grocery store where he works. Robbie dumps Lindsay when he realizes how mean she is, but tells Georgia that he won't date her because she is too young for him.

However, Georgia's mum comes in at the very end and announces that they have tickets to go to New Zealand for the summer, putting a damper on Georgia's new summer romance.
