Do you ever feel like starting your own business? Well, Ella did. Ella was excited to start her on ice cream business, but her best friends want to be a part of it. Will they be a part of it? Ella is a responsible girl she loves starting new business like a bakery that her parents owned.
If I had to give this this a rating of 1-5, it would be a 3 because I enjoyed reading it but I did not like how long the paragraphs were. Ella is a helpful person. While reading the book, I felt sad and happy at the same time. I was sad because Ella did not let her friends join and happy because I was still enjoying the book myself. My favorite part of the story is when Ella’s friends find new jobs because I felt bad for them when she did not let them join her business. Another favorite part is when Ella's friends get their own idea to make a bakery. I was happy because they were doing a good job.
In this book I was surprised about something and that was Ella is allowed to have her own ice cream shop. A word I learned was "inspired" because Ella was inspired to make rolled ice cream. Ella finds an inspiration for baking, too. I would recommend this to girls that like to make ice cream because she made ice cream.
