Today’s team review is from Jessie, she blogs at http://behindthewillows.com
Jessie has been reading The Secrets Of Ice cream by AD Hartley
Do you remember that group of kids, (mostly boys) that was so fun to be around?
Clowns, jokers and best friends they teased each other and everyone else, wrestled and created a friendly hulabaloo everywhere they went. Everyone giggled with them and nobody ever took seriously until one day you turned around and realized that somehow, between all the fart jokes and noogies, they’d gone out, conquered demons you didn’t even know they had and accomplished things.
The gang in this book is saving an ice cream emporium but I think you’ll recognize them anyway.
Would I recommend it? Yes! The antics of the boys (and girl) are an excellent counter balance to the heavier elements of the book. I was hooked by the drama and laughed my way through the plot. Which might mean I have the sense of humor of a fourteen year old boy… But it certainly means that I’d recommend it as a great middle grade or young adult book. Heck, I’d even say that, as your child’s responsible parent, you think you should probably “check” this book for them and read it first!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I discovered this book because I’m a proud member of Rosie’s Book Review Team!
