Book of the Month: November (The Ice Cream Girls)

Hi everyone! I LOVE reading books, and go through so many books a year. So many that my husband forced me to join a library as I buy too many books! I decided to do a feature each month on my favourite book of the moment. This month, it's the Ice Cream Girls by Dorothy Koomson.

This book has been categorised as a psychological thriller (one of my favourite genres).

The Blurb:
'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...'

The story deals with an abusive relationship the girls have with their school teacher, and the consequences when the teacher ends up dead. I found this book completely thought provoking, and couldn't put it down. The story kept me guessing until the very end. I found the book pretty detailed and very well written. The story-line was quite dark and gripping. I liked that the book made me think and look at things from very different perspectives. All in all, a very good read!

    I've always wanted to start a CP business coz those sites (gooddealer, bobodave etc) are marking the prices too high for people in US/UK/Canada to order :( sometimes when i look at their price tag and shipping and i felt ridiculous :(
