Ice cream warms the heart, no matter what the
That''s the Dobson family motto. Whenever things get tough, they
break out the special heart-shaped bowls and make sundaes. The road
has been especially rocky lately for Tess and her deaf little
brother, Jordan. Their plucky Texan mother talks big, but her
get-rich-quick business schemes have only landed them in serious
financial hot water.
Ma''s newest idea is drastic. She abruptly moves the family to
snowy Schenectady, New York, where she will use the last of their
savings to open her dream business: an ice cream shop. (Too bad the
only place she could find an apartment is in a senior citizens''
complex.) Tess wants to be excited about this plan, but life in
Schenectady is full of new worries. Who will buy ice cream in their
shop''s run-down neighborhood? What will happen when their money
runs out? Worst of all is Ma herself-she''s famous for her
boundless energy and grandiose ideas, but only Tess and Jordan know
about the dark days when she crashes and can''t get out of bed. And
Tess can''t seem to find the right words to talk to Ma about
This moving story of family, community, and ice cream proves that
with a little help from the people around us, life really can be
sweet-and a little nutty-just like Rocky Road.
