London can be a difficult place to navigate and this becomes particularly apparent through the progressions of London Belongs to Us as we follow a young girl called Sunny as she adventures her way through the boroughs in order to confront a boyfriend who has betrayed her trust in a most despicable way.
Along the way, Sunny meets a flurry of colourful characters and forms new allies with the most unusual people until she finally finds out the truth, stands up for herself and has the most incredible adventure across London along the way.
We meet Sunny as a young woman who is fairly downtrodden after receiving some devastating news on what is supposed to be a most memorable day in her life. It becomes apparent through the duration of the book that although this isn’t quite the day that Sunny expected, it’s certainly not one that she is likely to forget.
We follow this beautiful character as she grows in confidence, strength and heart and there is a strong sense of rooting for Sunny from the start. London Belongs to Us is a fast-paced sprint through London. However, it’s not the adventure that makes this book appealing, it’s the character development that wins you over and don’t be surprised if Sunny stays with you long after you’ve turned the final page.
