Read full description of the books Knocked Out by My Nunga-Nungas:Rereading this book series is such an experience for me because one the one hand, it still holds up completely, is hilarious and charming, and takes me right back to the days when I first read it.
On the other hand though, I find it extremely alarming how rude Georgia is to everyone around her, especially the following: Nauseating P. Green (Georgia is a straight up bully and it's horrible how she talks about this poor girl), Jas (as a kid, when I thought Georgia was the most hilarious person on the planet, I remember thinking Jas was kind of annoying as well. now I realize she's actually a lovely caring friend and Georgia is just horrible to her), Miss Stamp (all this part time lesbian stuff is so awful) and her parents (again, when I was younger I remember thinking 'yeah! parents are annoying!' and now I'm like 'wait she has really quirky and kind of awesome parents').
I have to keep reminding myself that she's 14 and will likely grow up into a better human being, but I have to wonder how the author herself feels about some of these subjects (ie. bullying and homophobia). I also recognize these were written awhile ago, but it makes me sad thinking back to reading these as a kid and knowing I didn't feel any sort of outrage at these parts when I was younger. Georgia is a terrible influence and I hate knowing she was a big role model to me, at least in journal-writing.
I was losing steam on this series until Georgia started coming to her senses about Dave the Laugh and now I'm hooked again, even though part of me hates how problematic some of Georgia's sensibilities are. I never actually finished the series though, so I'm very curious to see if there's any growth.
