My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Hope tackles some big topics: grief, sickness in children, organ donation, periods and PMDD, which was something I’d not previously been aware of. I like it when a book teaches me something new without it feeling forced or like a lesson. This book is quite an emotional rollercoaster with lots of drama, sadness, and, of course, hope. I felt that Hope realistically portrayed fragile teenage friendships and I particularly enjoyed the messaging between Hope and Riley, which felt very natural. As someone who’s had a few Plan Bs, I was really glad that Hope found hers!
