Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When 16-year-old Hope, waitress extraordinaire, moves cross-country to Wisconsin with her aunt Addie to run the Welcome Stairways Diner, Hope isn't sure she'll fit in. But she quickly finds herself involved in the small town's mayoral race, as G. T., owner of the diner, surprises everyone with his entry into the race. After all, G. T. has leukemia. And his opponent is the previously undefeated longtime mayor. Some think G. T. is crazy, but Hope sees the goodness and power in him. Will everyone else see it too? Joan Bauer, known for creating strong, unique, feminine characters, finds in Hope a sharp heroine who won't soon be forgotten.

Synopsis:

Readers fell in love with teenage waitress Hope Yancey when Joan Bauers Newbery Honor–winning novel was published ten years ago. Now, with a terrific new jacket and note from the author, Hopes story will inspire a new group of teen readers.
