The Ice Cream Girls

By Dorothy Koomson

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

A gripping novel about secrets that won't stay buried in the past, which inspired the major 2013 ITV drama of the same name.

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...
