A summer read about first love, feminism, and ice cream.
Summer in Sand Lake isn’t complete without a trip to Meade Creamery—the local ice cream stand founded in 1944 by Molly Meade who started making ice cream to cheer up her lovesick girlfriends while all the boys were away at war. Since then, the stand has been owned and managed exclusively by local girls, who inevitably become the best of friends. Seventeen-year-old Amelia and her best friend Cate have worked at the stand every summer for the past three years, and Amelia is “Head Girl” at the stand this summer. When Molly passes away before Amelia even has her first day in charge, Amelia isn’t sure that the stand can go on. That is, until Molly’s grandnephew Grady arrives and asks Amelia to stay on to help continue the business…but Grady’s got some changes in mind.
I can say this book is sweet. I liked the story idea of a group of friends working in an ice cream place for years together. Things change when the owner dies and the new hot manager starts and changes things up. He seems to be more trouble than what he’s worth.
I love the friendship between Cate and Amelie. Cate is like the bad girl, while Amelie is the sweet one. With this being their last summer together, will the new male manager ruin things between them?
A lot of ice cream was wasted throughout the book. The bonds and the friendships at the ice cream shop gets tested. It was a good book on best friends and trying to enjoy their last summer, before moving away to college.
