    Description

    The New York Times best-selling author of Tell Me Three Things and What to Say Next delivers a poignant and hopeful novel about resilience and reinvention, first love and lifelong friendship, the legacies of loss, and the stories we tell ourselves in order to survive.

    "A luminous, lovely story about a girl who builds a future from the ashes of her past." (KATHLEEN GLASGOW, New York Times best-selling author of Girl in Pieces

    Sometimes, looking to the past helps you find your future.

    Abbi Hope Goldstein is like every other teenager, with a few smallish exceptions: Her famous alter ego, Baby Hope, is the subject of internet memes, she has asthma, and sometimes, people spontaneously burst into tears when they recognize her. Abbi has lived almost her entire life in the shadow of the terrorist attacks of September 11. On that fateful day, she was captured in what became an iconic photograph: In the picture, Abbi (aka "Baby Hope") wears a birthday crown and grasps a red balloon; just behind her, the South Tower of the World Trade Center is collapsing. 

    Now, 15 years later, Abbi is desperate for anonymity and decides to spend the summer before her 17th birthday incognito as a counselor at Knights Day Camp two towns away. She's psyched for eight weeks in the company of four-year-olds, none of whom have ever heard of Baby Hope. 

    Too bad Noah Stern, whose own world was irrevocably shattered on that terrible day, has a similar summer plan. Noah believes his meeting Baby Hope is fate. Abbi is sure it's a disaster. Soon, though, the two team up to ask difficult questions about the history behind the Baby Hope photo. But is either of them ready to hear the answers?

    "Delivers its fair share of gut punches and cathartic moments.... A valuable addition to the growing body of 9/11-related teen literature - one that will be especially appealing to teens today. (Kirkus Reviews)

    Terrible book

    I tried to submit 1 star but the app was predestined to lock me into at least two. Terrible book and story. Don’t waste your time.

    Just Another Cliche

    I couldn't even finish the book because the cliche was so strong with this one. but if that's your thing I would recommend this.
