Hope Was Here
In recent years, the Young Adult genre has both expanded and matured. Thorndike Press offers this series to make the best of the Young Adult genre available to young readers in Large Print.
Sixteen-year-old Hope has traveled the States with her aunt Addie, honing her waitressing skills and impressing hungry people everywhere. But it's tough to never stay in one place very long. This move seems the hardest yet, leaving the excitement of New York City to run a rural Wisconsin diner. But, once there, instinct tells her to trust the straight-shooting owner of the Welcome Stairways diner, whose leukemia makes his entry into the mayoral race a surprise to everyone.
