really liked it

Cute story that shares some similarities with the theme and characters of Hope Was Here. Both have main characters who've been dealt a rough deal in terms of one or both of their parents. In the case of Jenna Boller, it's her alcoholic father, in Hope's case it's a bio-mom who had no time to be a mom and dumped Hope on her sister and no dad. Both find love and self-esteem through characters they meet along the way. For Jenna, it's Harry Bender, top shoe salesman for Gladstone's shoes and 23 years sober. Both characters face adversity and come out on the other side stronger and more sure of themselves.
