    *I would like to thank Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing for providing me a complimentary copy of this book through NetGalley. This does not affect my opinion of the book and the opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.While I was reading the book, I craved for ice cream the whole time. I suggest you guys have a tub of your favorite ice cream before starting this book because you will need it. This book is such a refreshin...

    "It’s the science of puberty. Girls develop faster than boys, emotionally and physically. How can any girl expect a high school boy to give her the moon and the stars when he’s basically an overgrown testosterone gland with legs?"This one starts off a wee bit morbid and blends itself into a sweet spot of friendship, new love, and ice cream. What more could any girl ask for? I have mixed emotions about this one. On one hand, I really enjoyed t...

    Amelia starts off her first day as Head Girl for Meade's Creamery by finding the dead body of owner Molly Meade inside the ice cream stand. Thinking this is the end to her summer job and the business, she accepts the truth that her planned summer has been broken into shambles until Molly's great nephew arrives in town. A young entrepreneur, Grady announces that he's taking over the business and the girls sprint around to make the stand presentabl...

    File this one under perfect summer read. Amelia loves working at the Meade Creamery, a famous local ice cream stand in her small, lakeside town that has a deep history. Originally started by Molly Meade near the end of WWII, Meade Creamery has only ever been staffed by women and has a ton of fun, lady-friendly traditions. But when Molly Meade dies at the beginning of what is to supposed to be Amelia's best summer yet, everything changes. I loved ...

    Guys, this book seriously is AMAZING. Sure, the characters were annoying at times, but they developed and were interesting. The plot was absolutely perfect. The letters from the 1940s in between were the best additions to the story. Siobhan's writing is so amazing, I can't wait to read more from her! This was one of my most anticipated releases of the year, and I was not disappointed! I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest revie...

    I dug right into this book and finished it in two days, even though I'm here on spring training. It was such a fast read, and I loved getting to know Amelia and Cate.

I had to know what happened next and would pick it up in the short bus rides to and from practice during break. It was riveting!Here’s my initial review from Go...

    Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review.Going into this book, I was really excited because the synopsis sounded really interesting and I've been loving books set in the summer recently but unfortunately I wasn't able to get through the entirety of this one and ended up DNFing it.The characters to me just felt kind of flat and one dimensional and the story itself was slow and dragged a little...

    Never read Siobhan Vivian before but after reading this gem of a novel I am currently on the waitlist for her other books at my local library!Amelia is bound and determined to make the last summer in her hometown (before heading off to college) the best summer; how can it not be when she is the head girl at the famous ice cream shop and she is working with her best friend?! But when Amelia finds the owner (and local heroine/role model to girls) M...

    Okay, at first blush this book seems like a fluffy summer romance, in the style of Morgan Matson. The first quarter of the book leads you to believe that's the way the story will go. But then a slow burn begins, where Amelia starts taking charge and shows grit, determination, and persistence in her effort to save the Meade Creamery. When she gets ahold of Molly Meade's wartime diary, we get to know more about the background story of the Creamery....

    There was nothing in particular to hate about this book, but there was really nothing to love either? While I enjoyed the summery feels and all of the ice cream making stuff, I found the characters to be really bland, the pacing was reaaaaally slow, and the plot so low stakes. Plus, the male romantic lead is literally a jar of mayonnaise, just the most basic white boy on planet Earth with zero personality and no sex appeal whatsoever. I would hav...

    The biggest accomplishment of this book was that it made me crave ice cream like never before. This sounds like a criticism, but truly being able to write about ice cream this well is a skill. At most this book was cute. It is one of those that you'd pick up and with a quick glance determine that it looks cute. This is a wonderful choice when you need a fun, simple read and the perfect summer beach read.

    This book was super cute and it will make a perfect spring break or summer read this year. It had the same charm as Jenny Hans To All The Boys I've Loved Before series and great messages about female empowerment and friendship. Definitely would recommend to anyone looking for a light and heart-warming read.

    I feel like this is the most Jenny Han-esque of SV's books. Great summery read. It made ME want to work at their ice cream stand!
