Summary

Sunny is a refreshingly honest, hilarious and biting novel about love, family and mental health from actor, comedian and writer Sukh Ojla.

This actually is a love story, just not the one Sunny was looking for....

Sunny is the queen of living a double life. On the one hand, she's 30, flirty and thriving. But on the other, she's just moved back in with her parents while all her friends are getting married, buying houses and having babies. To complicate matters further, she's a secret serial dater, sneaking out of the house every night, leaving her parents with a trail of little white lies.

But one day, her two lives collide in her parents' hallway as she's trying to slip out the front door under the cover of darkness.

Only the truth will get her out of this one. But to Sunny's horror, her mum isn't as appalled as expected, and instead offers a strange deal. Sunny can keep going on dates, as long as Sunny's mum gets to choose who she dates. What could be worse?!

After numerous cringeworthy, awkward and sometimes soul-destroying dates, Sunny has the chance to stop lying to her mum and start being honest...about everything.

Sunny by Sukh Ojla is a relatable, hilarious and life-affirming novel. It is biting and disarmingly honest, exploring family, love and mental health. Perfect for fans of Queenie by Candice Carty-Williams, Grown Ups by Marian Keyes and Olive by Emma Gannon.

Really great easy listening

I loved this book and the narration was really great ! It’s an easy going storyline and feels a bit like watching your favourite a Netflix series but at the same time it captures the complexity of female relationships really well the joy of good friendships and also the pain of really bad ones ! I highly recommend this book !

So real and relatable

Burst into tears more times than I’d care to admit because of how scarily relatable it is. Searingly real how she talks about insecurities and fears and of course the Indian family institution. Loved every bit of it!

Absolutely fantastic

This is a MUST to read… open and honest the author has shared the ups and downs of her life story. I am a fan! After seeing her comedy show I
was excited when I found out she has written a book. I listened to this book on my holiday in Rhodes and it kept me entertained. She is a brilliant comedian & now author. Well Done Sukh! Looking forwards to see what else you will be doing next.

A Must Listen

An absolute joy to hear. Sukh's story is great on its own let alone hearing her effortlessly skillful voice work elevate it even further.

As I was mostly listening to it when I was driving, it occasionally had me forgetting I was in bad traffic on the M25! Stop reading this and just get it already!

Engaging and thoughtful

Extremely relatable story of a young woman developing her own identity separate from her family and the community in which she has grown up, and deciding which of society's expectations match her own values. Also has great insight into what makes for healthy friendships, romantic relationships, and family ties. Written (and narrated) by a wickedly funny comic who gives Sunny a clear, wry voice. The book is full of complex, fully human, flawed and funny and brilliant and wonderfully infuriating female characters. It's a must read/listen.
