Rennison was best known for her teen book series Confessions of Georgia Nicolson. The first two novels Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging and It’s OK, I’m Wearing Really Big Knickers were adapted into the 2008 comedy Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging, which starred Aaron Taylor-Johnson.
His Dark Materials author Pullman took to Twitter to mourn her death, writing, “I’m shocked and saddened to hear of the death of Louise Rennison, far too young,” while The Fault in Our Stars writer Green added, “Very sad to hear that the great YA (young adult) writer Louise Rennison has died.”
The Princess Diaries novelist Meg Cabot posted, “So sad to hear about the passing of Louise Rennison. Her books were a pleasure to read, and she was a pleasure to know. RIP, Louise!”
American author Ally Carter also wrote, “So sad about this loss. Louise Rennison was one of the authors who really inspired me when I was starting out.”
Rennison also wrote The Misadventures of Tallulah Casey and most recently released The Taming of the Tights in 2013.
