Following up her first offering about “Les Bambinos Dangereuses,” Dent gives readers the same ultra-hip slangy rollicking ride through the leisure world of three—far from average—British teen girls. Many of the original cast of characters is back, including the rock superstar Spike Saunders, but this time instead of the parental units forbidding music festival attendance, the girls are allowed to go under the chaperonage of Fleur’s older sister, recently returned from trekking in Nepal. Following the same unrealistic plot lines of the original, everything that any girl could dream of happening at a rock concert occurs. There are totally lush boys to snuggle, a place to get henna tattoos, and a chance to get into the VIP area reserved for the rich and famous. Less frenetically written this time around, this builds nicely into an almost logical, yet vastly unlikely ending that will satisfy those readers out for lighthearted vicarious thrills. Cotton-candy fun. (Fiction. YA)
