This series never fails to make me laugh out loud. Georgia Nicolson is so confused, so dramatic, and so boy-crazy, but you see hints of a good heart underneath. While enjoying her antics I find myself rooting for the rational part of her brain to win.

I don't know how to recommend these titles to teen girls. Do they take the books seriously or laugh at themselves? Need a little help from all you YA Specialists. How do you sell this series?

Laura I've had the same problem, Andrea. I've booktalked this series like crazy to teen girls and I don't think I've managed to hook a single one. I've tried pinpointing the moment when they shut down on me and, the best I can tell, it's the word "British." But how can you possibly "sell" this book without mentioning that Georgia is British?! Let me know if you have any success...

Christine I give this to the slightly more sophisticated chick lit crowd - the smarter girls. Not everyone gets irony. I think that is what they don't get about "British".
