Revenge, Ice Cream and Other Things Best Served Cold by Katie Finn
"After the humiliating events on the 4th of July, Gemma's trying to grapple with the fact that Hallie knew her true identity all summer, and that she was the one who stole Teddy from her.
Gemma vows revenge, but things immediately get more complicated than she planned. Her dad forces her to get a job, and the only one she can find involves scooping ice cream all day. Ford, Gemma's longtime crush, has arrived in the Hamptons, and is cuter than ever. Josh is refusing to speak to her after finding out she lied to him. And to top it all off, Teddy is back in the picture, and closer to home than Gemma would like.
Gemma and Hallie find themselves locked in an escalating revenge cycle involving everything from strawberry syrup to stolen identities. But just when Gemma thinks she has the upper hand, the biggest bombshell of all is dropped. And it's one that threatens to change her life forever."- summary from Amazon
I am such a huge fan of Katie Finn already and this series is further solidifying that love. I absolutely enjoyed this funny yet emotional page-turning read. It's a difficult book to put down and once you do, you'll be yearning for the next book in the series (the final one comes out this May!). The revenge battle between Gemma and Hallie goes back and forth and it's crazy to read all the different pranks and stuff they do to each other over the course of the novel. And the book takes so many twists and turns and of course ends on a crazy cliffhanger that will make you wish the final book was out already. Plus, the romantic tension between Gemma and both Hampton hotties Ford and Josh is very fun to read as well.
