Pages: 342
Genre: Adventure
Rating: 4/5

Synopsis: Recklessly loyal.

That’s how seventeen-year-old Arden Huntley has always thought of herself. Caring for her loved ones is what gives Arden purpose in her life and makes her feel like she matters. But lately she’s grown resentful of everyone—including her needy best friend and her absent mom—taking her loyalty for granted.

Then Arden stumbles upon a website called Tonight the Streets Are Ours, the musings of a young New York City writer named Peter, who gives voice to feelings that Arden has never known how to express. He seems to get her in a way that no one else does, and he hasn’t even met her.

Until Arden sets out on a road trip to find him.

During one crazy night out in New York City filled with parties, dancing, and music—the type of night when anything can happen, and nearly everything does—Arden discovers that Peter isn’t exactly who she thought he was. And maybe she isn’t exactly who she thought she was, either.


Based on the title, I though there’d be a night of adventures. There were only some adventurous events that happened. I do recommend this book.

I liked the characters. Arden’s story about how she got turned into a Just Like Me Doll was eye-opening to me. Peter was a gentleman despite some inaccurate things he wrote on his blog, but everyone’s perspective is different. Peter and I both want to be writers and I got some inspiration from him.

There wasn’t anything I disliked about this book so I recommend it. It’s a unique story, but it could’ve been written more creatively so that I would’ve given it five stars. There could’ve been more potential to it.
