Food is in sixteen-year-old Hope's blood. With her aunt Addie, diner cook extraordinaire, she's traveled the States and honed her waitressing skills, impressing hungry people everywhere. But following the tides of comfort-food dining means Hope never gets to stay in one place very long, and that's tough. This latest move threatens to be the hardest yet, leaving the excitement of New York City to run a diner in rural Wisconsin. Hope doesn't expect to feel at home there, just as she doesn't expect to get caught up in town politics. But her occupation has taught her to read people, and instinct tells her to trust G.T. Stoop, the straight-shooting owner of the Welcome Stairways diner, whose leukemia makes his entry into a heated mayoral race a surprise to everyone. What follows--as Hope meets politics, corruption, and her past head-on--is at the heart of this memorable, laugh-out-loud story about honor, trust, and serving up your very best.

This book was amazing. Parents, I was weary in the beginning about the book being downloadable, but it was still great. To me, it makes you feel the passion and every moment the author had. Parents in life children go through situations, and sometimes moving from place to place leaving everything behind you can be tough. This story is great for your per teen and teenager to read. This will not disappoint you.

"We have this need for leaders to look good, sound good. Everywhere I go, I always write Hope was here. You know what I found out bout disappointments? I think if you face them down, they can become our strengths."
