it was amazing

Hope was here is a phenomenal book for teen girls, but I think most everybody would enjoy this book. In this book a young girl named hope lives with her aunt Addie, since her mom gave her to her aunt. Dealing with no father, and a not so great mother, hope has learned to be... Well, hopeful. Though her aunt is a spectacular cook, many of her restaurants go belly-up for reasons out of her control. So hope, an excellent waitress is used to moving quite a lot. However, when they move to a small Wisconsin town hope isn't sure even she can adapt. All the while staying hopeful her dad is searching for her and will find her soon. As hope learns the meaning of life from a man with leukemia, she also learns about politics as he runs for mayor and the importance of being a good person. After several surprising events, she learns maybe a real dad isn't quite who she expected. Once again this book is incredible you should totally read it.
