Yesterday the book world was shocked and saddened by the news that much loved British author Louise Rennison, the genius behind the Georgia Nicolson series, had passed away aged 63.
If you've ever used the phrase 'nunga-nungas', 'marvy' or 'nuddy pants' then you've got Louise to thank, as Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, along with the rest of her work, brought thousands of teenage girls endless hilarity, comfort and an important reminder that it's okay to be a bit awkward and weird.
The diary of Georgia and the stories of The Ace Gang covered pretty much everything from boys to bras (and going to a fancy dress party as a stuffed olive) in the best kind of way, and the books are full of genius quotes that will stick with you forever.
In tribute to Louise and her AMAZING ability to make being a teenager funny, we've rounded up some of her best and most brilliant book quotes - because as Georgia herself said, "she who laughs last laughs the laughingest".
1. On falling in love.
2. On passion.
3. On joy.
4. On managing life's stresses.
5. On expressing your own style.
6. On selflessness.
