I thought Hope Was Here was great book. It outlined what can sometime happened in politics and the story kept at a place were It could be taken for true. The characters were also very well thought out and all had stand out quality's.
Hope is a 16 year old girls who lives
With her aunt. Her name suits her
Perfectly as she brings hope to all
of those who she meets.
Addie is hope’s aunt/guardian. She is an amazing cook
And brings her own flair into everything she makes. After many failed restaurants she
Finally found her place when she moves to Mullhoney.
Braverman is a tough cook
Who undoubtedly has a soft side.
Late in the book he becomes Hope’s boy friend and ends up waiting to go to college until Hope can go as well.
GT is a kind and accepting person. He has leukemia and said that he finally understood how important life was when he became sick. He is also Addie’s husband and Hope’s father.
Remember to fix the vote like I told you.
