Matthew Johnson | 4 comments SO I think a girl moves to this new town and there is a lake there that had been an old town and was flooded. Even though it is a minor thing I specifically remember an ice cream parlor mentioned and playing a part in the book. I can literally picture scenes but don't know how to describe it. Again, a book I read in middle school and I think in the title is something with one of the following words....summer, cold, cool, lake. Not sure but if anyone knows I would be thankful!

Teen girl goes to visit a cousin for the summer and they discover a number of old houses that used to border a lake; all but one house has been abandoned. There is a sequel called Return to Gone-Away. It was published in 1957 and won the Newbery Award in 1958. My kids and I thoroughly enjoyed them both; I don't recall if there is anything about an ice cream parlor.
