    "A little slow"
    Would you try another book from Dorothy Koomson and/or the narrators?

    Maybe


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The Competitor


    What three words best describe the narrators’s voice?

    Soft, alive, quiet


    Did The Ice Cream Girls inspire you to do anything?

    Unfortunately no


    Any additional comments?

    The book was very slow paced and I was under the impression it would have spent more time on the trial as opposed to the girls' lives after.

    "Great Book - Hard Content"

    This book has some very hard to hear subject matter and I must say some of it was a bit too over the top. For me, the girls having the caring families that they did but then coming home with a multitude of some pretty serious injuries just doesn't jive for me. However, that being said I can see where predatory and self righteous thugs could and would inflict such pains. For me the writing and story line were enough to keep me constantly engrossed, enough so that I've now gone and gotten her other book that Audible has to offer and I'm just as excited to listen to it - hoping it keeps my interest just as much as this one did. I can't help but be sad for one of the characters in this book - you'll know who by the end. Highly recommended if you can handle the context.

    "I couldn't quit listening."

    The plot, language and narration were fantastic! With only one (understandably) one-dimensional character, I was intrigued by the protagonists' personalities, lives and plights. With one exception, I was unable to piece together exactly what happened in the past to make Serena and Poppy "The Ice Cream Girls".

    At the risk of being repetitive, I enjoyed this book immensely, and will enjoy listening to it again. Kudos to the author and narrators.
