The Ice Cream Girls – Dorothy Koomson – Genre – Contemporary
As teenagers, Poppy Carlisle and Serena Gorringe were the only witnesses to a tragic event. Amid heated public debate, the two seemingly glamorous teens were dubbed ‘The Ice Cream Girls’ by the press and were dealt with by the courts.
Years later, having led very different lives, Poppy is keen to set the record straight about what really happened, while Serena wants no one in her present to find out about her past. But some secrets will not stay buried – and if theirs is revealed, everything will become a living hell all over again . . .
Gripping, thought-provoking and heart-warming, The Ice Cream Girls will make you wonder if you can ever truly know the people you love.
My Review: This is my first book by Dorothy Koomson and it won’t be my last. I was gripped throughout the book and couldn’t put it down. Thoroughly recommend this one. It’s a fast paced plot with believable characters and a thoroughly compelling storyline.
