2018 book 61

Joan Bauer's Hope Was Here
This was a very sweet story, a Newbery Honor book, about a teenage girl, a waitress, who moves with her chef aunt to take over a diner run by a man with leukemia—a man who's decided to run for mayor against the very corrupt incumbent (too real). There is not a lot of meat to the story, but I liked the depiction of unconventional families and appreciated the multi-racial cast. Just a satisfying and heartwarming read. B/B+.
