Twelve hours, two boys, one girl ...and a whole lot of hairspray. Seventeen-year-old Sunny's always been a little bit of a pushover. But when she's sent a picture of her boyfriend kissing another girl, she knows she's got to act. What follows is a mad, twelve-hour dash around London - starting at 8pm in Crystal Palace (so far away from civilisation you can't even get the Tube there) then sweeping through Camden, Shoreditch, Soho, Kensington, Notting Hill ...and ending up at 8am in Alexandra Palace. Along the way Sunny meets a whole host of characters she never dreamed she'd have anything in common with - least of all the devilishly handsome (and somewhat vain) French 'twins' (they're really cousins) Jean Luc and Vic. But as this love-letter to London shows, a city is only a sum of its parts, and really it's the people living there who make up its life and soul. And, as Sunny discovers, everyone - from friends, apparent-enemies, famous bands and even rickshaw drivers - is willing to help a girl on a mission to get her romantic retribution. A fast-paced, darkly funny love letter to London, boys with big hair and the joys of staying up all night. BUY HERE!

I give it - 4/5
My review - Fast paced, witty, humorous story! For me, I adore London so I jumped at the chance to accept a copy of this book. Once I started this book I couldn't stop. I was gripped from the very beginning and it made me feel like I was right there in London with Sunny and her friends going all around the place.
We follow Sunny in this story. She's 17 and not very out-going-until she gets a picture sent to her of her boyfriend kissing another girl. She tries to think that it's not what it seems and all she wants to do is talk to him and that has her running around London looking for him like a wild mouse chase and along the way she meets a bunch of interesting characters plus, some of her friends who join in with the journey. All she wants is answer but instead-she ends up having the best 12 hours of her life. Her morning might have started out bad but her journey was so fun and I felt like I was with her the whole time.
I really loved the diversity in this book. Sunny is mixed race and it was interesting to read from her POV how she gets treated by others and especially the name calling. But Sunny takes no crap from anyone and after the crazy 12 hours she comes out a lot more stronger, sassier and more willing to not take any crap from anybody and I loved every second of it.
All the characters where so interesting and they really added to the story. I also loved how when they went to somewhere different there was a little bit of history of that place in the chapter and for people who don't know that much about London, it's a great thing and I really enjoyed reading those facts.
If you're looking for a fast paced, witty story filled with friendship, relationships, and dealing with boys who mess with your head then this is the story for you! You will fall in love with Sunny and her friends and wish you where there with them.
