Samenvatting

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.

Recensie(s)

Hope is as full of optimism as her name and there are lots of fabulous descriptions of food. Heartwarming -- Kit Spring Observer It's a triumph of conviction, wit and style over social and political naivety Books for Keeps How can you resist such a wholesome book which has the message that the antidote to miscontent and unhappiness in the world is good food, especially pecan pie? The School Librarian Its triumph is the way in which Bauer manages to recount the internecine politics and power struggles of a small, midwestern town -- Michael Thorn Scotsman This is a thought provoking, beautifully written novel Waterstones Books Quarterly
