Louise Rennison was one of the most popular and award winning author from England. She was particularly famous for writing down the teenage girl series titled ‘Confessions of Georgia Nicolson’. Apart from being an author, Louise was also a well known comedian. The bestselling written by author Louise deals about the exploits of the teenage girl named Georgia Nicolson and her best friends from the Ace Gang. The first couple of books from the series was adapted into a movie title as ‘Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging’. Author Louise also wrote a separate series of novels about the younger cousin of Georgia Nicolson. The one-woman concert show of Louise known as Stevie Wonder Felt My Face, helped her to win critical acclaim during the 1980s. After the success of this show, author Louise went on to do a couple of other live shows. Louise was born on October 11, 1951 in Leeds, England; and died on February 29, 2016. She grew up in Leeds, Yorkshire, along with her mother, father, uncle, aunt, cousin, and grandparents. Her house was a 3 bedroom council house, which was big enough to accommodate the big joint family of author Louise. She did her schooling from the Parklands High School, which was an all girls school. Author Louise later credited the school to have inspired her to become a comedic writer.

When she was fifteen years old, her family shifted to Wairakei in New Zealand. At such a young age, author Louise got pregnant due to her relationship with her boyfriend and had to give up her daughter for an adoption. When Louise returned to The United Kingdom, she started living in a small apartment located in Notting Hill. She also began doing several low level jobs in order to earn her living. After spending a few initial months in a lot of struggle, Louise finally thought of pursuing her action dream and eventually joined the Brighton University for a Performing Arts course. While learning the acting skills at the university, author Louise became a part of an all female group of cabaret dancers. The group was called as ‘Women with Beards’, which often used to get involved in poking fun at the men through their performances, telling them the reasons for being responsible for all the ills present in the society. The first major breakthrough in the life of Louise came due to her autobiographical live show. After its initial success, she went on numerous tours performing the show. Some of the most prestigious where she performed include the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Later, a one off special show was also produced by the BBC Channel. Slowly, author Louise began her writing career and initially wrote for the Woman’s Hour for the Radio 4. Louise used to write the scripts of this show for comedians. Other than that, she also began writing for one of the London Newspapers. She used to often write in the newspaper columns about whatever used to interest her personally. One of the topics she wrote about was dating above the age of 35 being a pointless thing. This column was very much appreciated by the Picadilly Press, which invited Louise to write a diary book about teenage girls.

The Press described her writings as childish and self-obsessed and therefore, believed that she would be able to write a diary book perfectly. The first book written by author Louise was published in the year 1999, which went on to become a worldwide bestseller. It was later translated into more than 34 foreign languages. Being her debut novel, author Louise used all the real named of her friends from her childhood in her book and forgot to change them at the time of publication. As a result, many of her childhood friends recognized themselves in the course of the stories. The death of author Louise came as a shock to everyone and HarperCollins announced sadly announced it on February 29, 2016. At the time of her death, author Louise was working on her second series titled ‘The Misadventure of Tallulah Casey’. This series was based on the life of the cousin of the main character of her first series, named Georgia Nicolson.

The Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series written by author Louise Rennison consists of 10 books in total, published between the years 1999 and 2010. The first novel in the series is titled as ‘Angus, Thongs and Full Frontal Snogging’. It was released by the Harper Teen publishers in the year 1999. The main story of the book is set in England, The United Kingdom, and features Georgia Nicolson and Jasmine in the lead characters. When the story begins, Georgia Nicolson is shown as complaining about 6 wrong things in her life. These include a spot under the skin of her nose, her 3 year old sister, going back to school after the completion of the summer holidays, being ugly, and having a bad dressing sense. Throughout the novel, author Louise has described a year in Georgia’s life which is full of soaring joys and angsts of a teenager. In the end, it appears to be a simple, hilarious, and irreverent book that tends to make the readers laugh out loud.

The second book of the series was published under the title ‘It’s Ok, I Am Wearing Really Big knickers!’. It was released by HarperCollins in the year 2000. This book too features Georgia Nicolson as the lead character. At the beginning of the book’s story, it is shown that Georgia Nicolson has become successful in developing a relationship with Robbie, for whom she always had feelings in her heart. Now, the only thing that Georgia keeps thinking is to advance in her relationship with Robbie. However, things begin to go wrong when she learns that due to her fathers new job she will be required to move to New Zealand along with her family. Devastated, Georgia begins to feel that her life might just be nothing but over. But then, the decision gets cancelled miraculously and things begin to get better once again in the life of Georgia Nicolson. Then, she comes to know about a more disheartening news. Robbie decides to end his relationship with Georgia because he seems to be more worried about the difference in the ages of both of them. But, she does not seem to let him go so easily and decides to carry out a scheme to win him back in her life. In spite of trying so desperately to make things better in her life, Georgia does not find much success in her adolescent life. The way author Louise has given the description of the teenage problems in the life of Georgia, it seems recognizable to all those readers who are, or have been, teenagers.
