Stay Sweet Reviews

    Review originally posted on Mostly YA Lit: Review: Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian

    Stay Sweet is a book all about teens and ice cream that belies it's true feminist nature. Siobhan Vivian has put together a fantastic read that is just fluffy enough, just feminist enough, just romantic enough, and just nostalgic enough to make you feel all the summer feels.

    Stay Sweet centres on 17 year old Amelia Van Hagen, who’s been working at the local ice cream stand, Meade Creamery, for the last four summers. T

    Banana Split For My Baby by Louis Prima

    Banana split for my baby

    A glass of plain water for me

    Slip back the lid

    Scoop everything in sight

    Make it a rainbow of red, brown and white

    Chocolate chip and everything that's nice

    Tutti-frutti once and spumoni twice

    Banana split for my baby

    And a glass of plain water for me

    Spray the whipped cream for at least an hour

    Pile it as high as the Eiffel Tower

    Load it with nuts, about sixteen tons

    Top it with a pizza just for fun

    Banana split for my baby

    And a glass of plain water for me

    This is more about the sound than the lyrics - because who wants a glass of plain water when there's ice cream to be had? But Banana Split For My Baby came out in 1956, and I can just imagine that Molly Meade would be listening to it while making ice cream. It also screams summer, and I feel like the Meade Creamery girls, who listen to oldies at the stand, probably started cheering when this song came on. 

    The Final Word:

    Look, I know a YA book about girls who work coveted jobs at an ice cream stand already SCREAMS Tiff. So I guess it's no surprise that STAY SWEET by Siobhan Vivian is definitely going to be on my best-of list for 2018. Perfect for any contemporary reader who loves summer romances, but especially ones who appreciate that a simple scoop of vanilla ice cream can have hidden depths. Stay Sweet reels you in with it's ice cream and cuteness, then draws you deeper with the complexity of it's true flavour: feminism. And it does it all in a way that leaves you wanting another whole scoop (or carton!) of Meade Creamery after you’re finished. (Sequel, please?)

    So cute! Or should I say ~sweet~ (I’m so funny). I really enjoyed this. Amelia’s passion for the creamery was awesome and I loved the sisterhood vibes that came along with it. The idea of girls working together and supporting each other each summer was great. The romance was a bit of a slow burn and I wish there was more chemistry earlier in the book; honestly it kind of felt sudden when it happened? I liked Amelia a lot and her friendship with Cate... for the most part. I was constantly on edge ...more

    * actual 4.3/5 *

    - Received a copy from publisher in exchange for review -

    This was such a sweet summer read, I enjoyed it from start to finish. The characters were refreshing and the plot was easy to follow. Amelia's POV shared recent high school graduate conflicts in a realistic way, and her relationships with other characters developed throughout the novel. I did find that the romance with Grady was a bit odd, it progressed very fast, but I enjoyed the conclusion of the whole story. Amelia grew

    I really liked STAY SWEET, friends, and not just for the ice cream (though the ice cream part was obviously amazing). It’s the kind of contemporary I enjoy, with a summer of change, growing pains and still a lot of fun details too.

  • Olivia (The Candid Cover)

    I knew I needed Stay Sweet by Siobhan Vivian the second I heard about its publication. This book has everything you could possibly want: summer vibes, ice cream, feminism, and friendship. I loved the ice cream parlour setting, and the main character is a strong leader. This book is cute and has an empowering message, and I would definitely recommend it.

    The sweetest. I really loved this one.

    This book is the story of two women: in the past, there's Molly, who starts an ice cream stand in a lakeside town while she and the girls in her community wait for their sweethearts to come back from the war. And in the present, Amelia, who has worked at the stand every summer and has finally made "Head Girl." Until she makes a shocking discovery that turns her entire summer into question.

    All in all, I thought this was 31 flavors of cuteness. Read all my tho

    This was cute, and sweet, and filled with ice cream - exactly what I was looking for! I wasn’t expecting too much from this except that I wanted a cute, fluffy contemporary to read in the hot spring sunshine. When I came across this novel which deals with girls working in an ice cream stand for a summer, I knew this was it.

    Some reviews and synopses say that this is a book of feminism which I think is stretching it a bit. Yes, it is about girls having control over an ice cream stand, but the sto

    4.5 stars!! I absolutely LOVED this book it was exactly what I needed this week and I’m such a sucker for a good summer contemporary. I realized when I was toward the end of the book that one of the reasons I liked it so much was that I really related to Amelia as a main character. I also love all the other characters in the book as well, and I LOVE Grady so much my goodness. The setting was also really nice I love the idea of Sand Lake. If you’re looking for a cute contemporary to kick off your ...more
