Hope and other punchlines
The New York Times bestselling author of Tell Me Three Things and What to Say Next delivers a poignant and hopeful novel that explores deepening friendships and family relationships, and a sweet romance, as it poses questions about identity and the extent to which we can control our own narratives.Imagine an iconic photograph of a baby with a paper crown on her head, holding a red balloon, in the arms of a woman and being whisked away from the World Trade Center on 9/11. Meet Abbie Hope Goldstein. On that fateful September 11 date, she was the child in that iconic photograph, taken on the day of her first birthday. Ever since then, she has been lovingly celebrated as Baby Hope. Now sixteen, Abbie feels the recognition is more of a curse. The absolute worst is when she makes strangers cry. But Abbie has an opportunity to shed that forced identity and present a new self. She takes a job as a day camp counselor, two entire towns away. For two months, she'll be able to make little kids laugh instead of strangers cry. No one will look at her and see Baby Hope.But it turns out that another counselor at camp does know who Abbi is, but he's promised not to tell. It also turns out that he has a secret too. Can this mutual understanding help them both to realize they have so much more to gain than to lose by revealing their truths?
