Review: Hope Was Here

User Review  - Maddy Seachrist - Goodreads

I'm on page 153 and I thought is was pretty good except for they kept on talking about the elections, but over all it was pretty good book. I think Hope has a crush on Braverman, but I think she doesn't realize or admit it. Read full review

Review: Hope Was Here

User Review  - Lilla - Goodreads

A pretty wholesome book as far as YA lit goes. Bauer writes strong female characters which was the book's greatest strength. Read full review
