Hope Was Here is a great story about moving away, dealing with loss, and moving on. This is a realistic fiction book that I could easily relate to! Another book by Joan Bauer: Close to Famous

Genre: Realistic Fiction My Rating: 4 out of 5-I rate "Hope was Here" a four out of five because it took time to settle into, but ended with a sad yet rewarding ending. I liked how it was easy to relate to, especially if you have moved before. Other books by Joan Bauer that I would recommend: Close to Famous

Laughter and loss are abundant in this story of a girl fighting for what she believes is both good and right.

I love this book!!!!!!! It is so realistic, and it has a teenager who isn’t just obsessed with her music, and only cares about guys and stuff like that. She is down-to-earth, and she is an awesome waitress. I almost cried it was so sweet. You really realize how much a person can impact people for the better.

I thought this book was really good. I couldn't put it down. I really got into this book. It kept me hoping things would turn out all right. Just when things seemed to be un-barable things turned around and everything was okay.

It was fresh, charming, funny, and sweet. I get so tired of the typical teenage books with a lot of garbage. This was a new plot, with a strong main character who stands up for what's right. Hope, the main character, moves with her mom to work in a dinky diner in a small town. Hope is the best waitress, and her mother Addie is an amazing cook. The book is about how they affect the town with their diner, and how Hope realizes who she is. Warning: this book will make you very hungry!
