Summary of Hope Was Here Summary of Hope Was Here Reviews for Hope Was Here An Excerpt from Hope Was Here
Readers fell in love with teenage waitress Hope Yancey when Joan Bauer’s Newbery Honor–winning novel was published ten years ago. Now, with a terrific new jacket and note from the author, Hope’s story will inspire a new group of teen readers.


“When it comes to creating strong, independent, and funny teenaged female characters, Bauer is in a class by herself. . . . Bauer tells a fast-paced, multilayered story with humor but does not gloss over the struggle[s].”—School Library Journal, starred review “Bauer has succeeded in creating another quirky, poignant, and funny novel about a strong girl who admits her frailties. . . . Hope’s story is highly recommended for both middle and high school students.”—VOYA “Another entry in Bauer’s growing collection of books about likable and appealing female teenagers with a strong vocational calling. . . . As always from Bauer, this novel is full of humor, starring a strong and idealistic protagonist, packed with funny lines, and peopled with interesting and quirky characters.” —Kirkus Reviews
