This book is about a girl and her family who move from San Antonio, Texas to Schenectady, New York when her mother gets an idea to open up an ice cream shop. Her mother has lots of ideas but she's bipolar and cannot follow through on anything. The main character Tess has to take care of everything (including her deaf little brother) and save her mother's business. In the beginning of the book, Tess is very negative because she had been disappointed by her mother many times. But throughout the story, Tess and her family are helped by new friends. By the end of the book, Tess is more positive and thinks that things will work out. She gets into the idea of the ice cream shop and thinks it will be a success. I liked the character of Tess because she stuck by her mother and brother even though they weren't perfect. Although her life was really hard, she didn't stop trying to help out and make things better for herself and other people.
