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, 12-hour dash around London starting at 8pm in Crystal Palace (so far away from civilization "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.

I haven't laughed this hard in a book in some time. Actually, I should clarify. I haven't laughed-out-loud like this from a book in some time. Maybe a snicker here and there, but not full-out belly laughs like London Belongs to Us caused. Although I've been meaning to read a book by author Sara Manning for a long time, having this one on the shelf at my library made it an easy decision. Some of her regular readers are stating this isn't her best work. Knowing that, I imagine I'm in for a treat of the highest caliber when I delve into her back list, because I found this book to be ultimately entertaining.
