Twelve days, eight shows, six cities.
How many unknown artists land that kind of gig?

Becky and Pete have been friends all their lives, almost as long as they’ve been a pop-punk duo. They moved from their small Northern hometown to London in hopes to ‘make it’—yet almost a decade on, they’ve got little to show for their efforts. Pursuing their dream has taken its toll on bot

Pete and Becky Friends for Life

Good storyline and a page turner with the many twist and turns. Loved how they held their friendship like kid gloves. There is enough drama for every character in this story to shine at some point in the story. Go and get it you will not be disappointed.
