Amelia had plans for her summer, but they are all dashed when she reports to her first day as Head Girl of Meade’s (all girl run) Creamery and finds owner Molly Meade dead. While Amelia won’t have the summer she wanted, she will get the one she needs.

Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian is a coming of age story set against the backdrop of ice cream. Told in part through the diary entries of a teenage Molly Meade and modern day Amelia, this story hits on so many of the tough situations that we must all learn to navigate. This story is about finding self and passion and a little bit about feminism too. Stay Sweet is the perfect summer treat. It’s a quick read that will leave you happy and satisfied at the end.
