Our book of the week is The Ice Cream Girls by Dorothy Koomson, and it is one you won’t be able to put down. The past doesn’t always stay in the past…and it is rare that a secret will remain that way forever:
At only eighteen years of age, Poppy and Serena were the only witnesses to a tragic event. Amid heated public debate and scrutiny, the two glamorous teens were dubbed ‘The Ice Cream Girls’ by the press and forced to go their separate ways and to lead very different lives.
Twenty years later, Poppy is keen to set the record straight about what really happened, while married mother-of-two 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, their lives will start to unravel 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.
Did you know The Ice Cream Girls has since been made into a limited television series starring Jodhi May and Lorraine Burroughs? Read the book, then hunt down the 2013 miniseries!
