Basoomas and Scottish Wildcats

Posted in Louise Rennison at 6:22 pm by Janet

While I was reading the new–and last–Georgia Nicolson book, I kept talking about it, so much so that Lucianonymous threatened to walk out on me. Since he won’t talk to me about Georgia, I’ll talk to you. So…Georgia’s up to her usual tricks, snogging Masimo, warding off (?) Dave the Laugh, baiting Wet Lindsay, trying to get Jas out of her huffmobile. But this time, the Stiff Dylans get an offer to move to/play in London and Masimo may have to leave her. What will Georgia do? Will she go with Masimo? Will he stay with her? Or will something else entirely happen? Georgia has to make what may be her final choice–Luuurrve God or ???? As usual, it’s hilarious.

I also noted at least two mentions of the Tarts Wardrobe. As in “I think I might go to the tarts’ wardrobe until the song’s over.”  I like to think Georgia was referring to our blog, but most likely it was the ladies room. Sigh.

To be honest, my favorite part of the book was the back matter (not that I didn’t like the book, I just really, really liked the back matter). There’s a section about Scottish Wildcats. You can read about “The Brethren of Angus” AND go to a website that supports them.  My oohing and ahhing over this may have been what drove Lucianonymous over the edge, but I don’t care. Those Scottish Wildcats are the best. Note that Scottish Wildcats can breed with domestic cats–hello Angus??? Ahem, “Pound for pound the Scottish wildcat is one of the most impressive predators in the world; intelligent, fearless, resourceful, patient, agile and powerful they are genuine superpredators and until as recently as the 1950s were believed to be man killers.”

Lucianonymous doesn’t know what he’s missing. Hmph!
