Hope Was Here, Paperback / softback Book

Hope Was Here Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Hope is a 16-year-old girl, living a nomadic lifestyle with her aunt Addie.

Addie is a chef and restaurant manager, and Hope works as a waitress.

They're always moving from place to place, and the story opens with them up-rooting from Brooklyn, New York.

Before she leaves, Hope scribbles 'Hope Was Here' onto the menu board - it's become her motto, a ritual she carries out whenever they have to hit the road - again.

Hope's a city girl and she isn't sure how she's going to tackle life in 'cow country'.

Things start hotting up for her, though, when she gets embroiled in the local politics of Mulhoney, Wisconsin while working at the Welcome Stairways diner- Soon, Hope is tackling big issues about her own past, while grappling with some surprising developments in her new home town.
