Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging  - Louise Rennison I haven't read the book... the stars are for the movie, which, to my surprise, was perfectly OK. (Look, can you blame me for being suspicious with a title like that?) It's often funny, with the odd moment of well-captured teenage melancholy, and the ending is cute. Definitely a long way from being the worst thing I saw last year.
