Why? oh why oh why?

Why me?
9:03 a.m.
And I'll just say this. Why?

This is the tenth and final book in the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series by Louise Rennison. And it all comes down to this, of course, will she or won't she?! Will she or won't she what you ask??? Well, if you've read the books you can probably guess that the full question is will she or won't she end up with Dave the Laugh.

Georgia has had her fair share of boyfriends. And currently she's heartsick over Masimo. Heartsick because Masimo, being the jealous type, got angry when Georgia danced with Dave the Laugh. A crazy little dance, right? It didn't mean much, right? After all, if a little dance made him this jealous, just imagine if he knew about the kiss the two shared, a kiss that Georgia dare not mention to a soul.

Can her relationship with Masimo be mended? Does she really want it to? If she does love Masimo--really, really love him--why is she always thinking about Dave the Laugh?

Of course, this book isn't just about Georgia's indecisiveness when it comes to her love life. Georgia's friends enter into it, of course. This time they're all going crazy because of Romeo and Juliet. Their all-girl school is putting on a performance of this Shakespeare tragedy that is bound to bring great laughs.

This sounds like a great series for young adults.

(Becky, I wish I were more like you. Reading more books, instead of blogs about them!)
