LOUISE RENNISON STOP IN THE NAME OF PANTS PDF

Thus Louise Rennison, author of this hugely successful series of diary-style novels, captures the essence of what it is like to be a teenage girl - bored with school, obsessed, yet puzzled by boys, and alternately suicidal and hysterical. At least I assume she captures it. However, my 14 year old daughter loves these novels. Which means, I assume, that the books do what they set out to do. She is deliberately free with chronology. Although the first book, Angus, Thongs and Full-frontal Snogging, covered a year, the subsequent books span only a few months each.

Thus Louise Rennison, author of this hugely successful series of diary-style novels, captures the essence of what it is like to be a teenage girl - bored with school, obsessed, yet puzzled by boys, and alternately suicidal and hysterical. At least I assume she captures it.

However, my 14 year old daughter loves these novels. Which means, I assume, that the books do what they set out to do. She is deliberately free with chronology. Although the first book, Angus, Thongs and Full-frontal Snogging, covered a year, the subsequent books span only a few months each.

Even so, Georgia would be well out of her teens by now had they been in real-time. In doing so she has, Simpsons-style, freed herself from total verisimilitude and given her work a timeless, and international, appeal. Her teenagers, which, she admits are based on her own adolescence in the s, exist in a strange anachronistic limbo, where no-one texts or uses mobile phones, spends hours on MSN or Facebook, or even watches much TV.

The distinctive slang adopted by Georgia and her mates is similarly quaint. It has charm and vigour. She also displays a degree of articulacy which might seem staid if it were not enlivened by her coinages.

The barely-tolerated and half-registered doings of her parents are described with weary humour, and her affection and concern for Angus, and her toddler sister Libby give Georgia a caring and vulnerable side, without which her preoccupation with boys and snogging would soon pall.

For all these reasons, I am sure that the upcoming tenth and final novel in the series will be lamented and celebrated in equal measure by teenagers — and eternal teenagers — all over the world.

Like the Invisible Twits. I got up and went behind the tree where they were all larding about, puffing smoke from fags and hitching their trousers up. Dear God. And loomed over them. She is not small. Shall we help you?

The oldest is 14 and a major bookworm, so is constantly recommending books to me. Nevertheless, I ordered the book from the library and it arrived yesterday. I only ended up reading it because I was quite sick during the night, and needed to keep myself awake in case I needed to rush to the bathroom again. I know, lovely, huh? So I grabbed this off my shelf and started reading. There are so many things which I absolutely hated: 1.

Early life[ edit ] Rennison was brought up in Leeds , Yorkshire, in a three-bedroomed council house in Seacroft with her mum, dad, grandparents, aunt, uncle and cousin. Her newspaper column was written about whatever personally interested her, such as how pointless it is to date over 35, and led to an invitation from Picadilly Press to write a teenage diary book. They said her writing was "so self-obsessed and so childish" that she would be perfect to write such a book. Being her first novel, she used real names of people from her childhood as she wrote and forgot to change the names before the book was published. She said, "I wanted Georgia to be a decent person. I wanted her to be someone who is a bit stupid and self-obsessed and difficult and funny and rude, and a bit jealous and all those other things.
