The Ice Cream Girls - Dorothy Koomson

Genre; Chick Lit/Drama
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 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, everything will become a living hell all over again...

I knew as soon as i heard this was been made into a tv drama i had to read the book first, otherwise i would never read it. I am grateful for this push because the book is great. The characters are well written (i would of love to imagined my own but as i had already seen the first episodes my imagery was ruined) This tells the story of two women who once were involved in a tragic event and ultimately their lives ended up very differently. The book is fast paced, and switches from present day to the past quite fluidly and easily.  It contains alot of drama and twists and turns right up until the end. If you have seen the drama, i still urge you to read the book as their is some key significant differences between the two, and besides, the book is always better.

Rating; 8/10
