From Publishers' Weekly:

Readers who became addicted to Georgia's hilarious reflections on adolescence, recorded in journal-like entries, in Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging and On the Bright Side, I'm Now the Girlfriend of a Sex God will not be disappointed with this latest installment. The laugh-out-loud events begin when the heroine must leave her Sex God behind to go on holiday with her family in Och-aye land (Scotland), where the teens hang out at a 24-hour supermarket ("Is that the groovy thing to do up there then?" asks SG's brother; "No, it's the only thing to do," the narrator replies). There, Angus befriends a "retired sheepdog," that rounds up "things like chickens, passing cars... old Scottish people doing their haggis shopping." Upon her return, Georgia's reunion with the Sex God occasions an "emergency snogging scale update" (from "1. Holding hands" to "10. The full monty"). Cumulative jokes build on events from the previous novels; some highlights include her "apology" to Mr. Attwood, to whom she "caused injuries" in the last installment, her ongoing "friendship" with P. Green, whom she rescued last term ("Look, P. Green, we can be mates but I'll have to see you in secret because you are a bit dim") and, at the novel's conclusion, a party game of "True. Dare. Kiss or Promise" pairs her up with Dave the Laugh ("a dumpee of mine") for a prolonged snog and inspires renewed confusion. With whom will she end up? Must she choose? Perhaps she can have it (them) all. Teens will identify with Georgia's competing emotions even as they laugh their way through every situation. Ages 13-up. (May) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
