The night before last I finished reading Startled by His Furry Shorts by Louise Rennison, the seventh and most recent installment of the Georgia Nicholson saga. (This one barely even pretends to work as a stand-along novel: it begins where the previous installment's cliffhanger left off, and it ends with another cliffhanger.) It was amusing enough, but it wasn't exactly fresh. Basically, it's Georgia saying and doing the same things she said and did in the previous six books. And much more saying than doing: there's little in the way of incident in this one. It would be understandable if Rennison were reluctant to walk away from the character who made her rich and famous (or at least moderately so), but perhaps it's time to wrap up the series (and it's pretty obvious by now how it's going to end) and move on.
