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.

I would definately recommend this book. The story is cripping and the depictions of the two girls/women were extremely well done. Solving the crime itself is not necessarily the center of this book but rather its reasons and consequences. Also the performance was great, I was really sucked into the story because of it.
The discussions in the cafe between the two women and the desperation of both of them in the web of misunderstandings and fear.
It really helped me to follow the story and not confuse the two characters as would normally easily happen to me. It enabled for me to enjoy the story more (English is not my mother tongue).
The events in hospital after Serena's accident.
Great book, I'm happy to have chosen it.
