Startled by His Furry Shorts - Louise Rennison I love the cover of this book! The imagery of the Macuseless play rehearsals and Jas as “Miss Haversham in that Dickens book, what is it called? Crap Expectations, I think… [sitting] in her wedding dress gathering cobwebs for years and years” are great. In a way, it kind of reminds me of Patsy and Edina in Absolutely Fabulous,, though here, we’re given the high school version. ;)

Major bleak moment:

Georgia on Masimo’s Vespa: “Unfortunately as I spoke, a flying bug flew into my mouth. A really big one, part bug part bat. I nearly choked to death and was trying to spit it out. […] I was coughing and gagging and Masimo said, ‘What did you say?’ Erlack erlack […] I finally managed to spit it out and shouted, ‘I was just singing a song.’”
