Farewell, Louise Rennison.

It is with the deepest sorrow I learned of the loss of Louise Rennison, today.
Louise wrote the brilliant Georgis Nicolson series as a 'diary' of 14-year-old Georgia as she navigates her way through life with her annoying parents. This series was followed by The Misadventures of Tallulah Casey series, about Georgia's slightly younger cousin.
Louise was also elected "Queen of Teen" in 2008. She wrote with honesty, incredible energy and humour and has left us a wonderful legacy of truth and laughter....oh, so much laughter!
RIP, dear Louise.  Thank you for the gifts of your wonderful books. The world will be a quieter, less funny place.

  2. I don't know, Sue. It was a shock for most of us. She will be truly missed.
