A Boy called Hope


Author – Lara Williamson

Age – 9+

A boy called Hope was funny, and things weren’t all perfect in the end – which is how life is – most of the time.

Dan Hope is a likeable character and thinks quite literally as 11 yr olds do. He is sweet and a little confused about how his dad could leave and never come back, write or contact them in any way, even though he lived only 20 minutes away.

Dan decides he wants to see his dad, but lots of things happen along the way – a pregnancy, a school show, a truce and some huge changes in his family.

This is a sweet, funny, and sometimes sad story.
