Book Overview

A Newbery Honor Book

Joan Bauer's beloved Newbery Honor book--now with a great new look for middle grade readers

When Hope and her aunt move to small-town Wisconsin to take over the local diner, Hope's not sure what to expect. But what they find is that the owner, G.T., isn't quite ready to give up yet--in fact, he's decided to run for mayor against a corrupt candidate. And as Hope starts to make her place at the diner, she also finds herself caught up in G.T.'s campaign--particularly his visions for the future. After all, as G.T. points out, everyone can use a little hope to help get through the tough times . . . even Hope herself.

Filled with heart, charm, and good old-fashioned fun, this is Joan Bauer at her best.

* When it comes to creating strong, independent, and funny teenaged female characters, Bauer is in a class by herself . Bauer tells a fast-paced, multilayered story with humor but does not gloss over the struggle s].--School Library Journal, starred review

Bauer has succeeded in creating another quirky, poignant, and funny novel about a strong girl who admits her frailties . Hope's story is highly recommended for both middle and high school students.--VOYA

Another entry in Bauer's growing collection of books about likable and appealing female teenagers with a strong vocational calling . As always from Bauer, this novel is full of humor, starring a strong and idealistic protagonist, packed with funny lines, and peopled with interesting and quirky characters. --Kirkus Reviews
