The Summer of Bitter and Sweet
Fact: Ice cream is good. But ice cream can't fix everything.
Lou is dealing with enough complications under the roof of her family's ice-cream shack this summer. But when she gets a letter from her white biological father--a man she hoped would stay behind bars for the rest of his life--Lou knows that he poses a danger to her and her family. Unless she can face him down.
In this complex and emotionally resonant novel about a Métis girl living on the Canadian prairies, debut author Jen Ferguson serves up a powerful story about rage, secrets and all the spectrums that make up a person--and the sweetness that can still live alongside the bitterest truth.
