My Cup

Teens fell in love with Georgia in Angus, thongs and full frontal snogging a couple of years ago. It was sort of a Bridget Jones for the teen set. It's success has spawn several similar books.

The latest is My cup runneth over: the life of Angelica Cookson Potts by Cherry Whytock. Angel as she is called by friends and family lives in London. Her most divine and wonderful friends are Mercedes, Minnnie and Portia. The foursome sticks together through thick and thin, grotty boys, wierd parents and life in general.

Angel is maddly in love with bad boy wanna be Adam. She wants to be a cook just like Jamie Oliver. She wished her ex-model mother and her darling but dotty father were just a little more like other people's parents. She wishes she were thin. And she longs for snotty Sydney to drop of the face of the earth for all his jokes about her cup size.

This was a fast read and my only real complaint is that I thought it was a bit short.
