Hope and Other Punchlines

Hope and Other Punchlines

Julie Buxbaum  (Autor)
The New York Times bestselling author of Tell Me Three Things and What to Say Next delivers a poignant and hopeful novel that poses questions about identity and the extent to which we can control our own narratives.

Imagine an iconic photo of a baby with a paper crown on her head, holding a red balloon, in the arms of a woman and being whisked away from the World Trade Center on 9/11. Imagine that you were that baby.

On the fifteenth anniversary of the tragedies of 9/11, sixteen-year-old Abbi is once again in the news. On that fateful day, as a one-year-old child grasping a red balloon and wearing a paper birthday crown, she was being carried safely from the devastation when an iconic photograph was taken of her and the young woman holding her. Thus, Abbi was lovingly celebrated as Baby Hope.

The fame became a curse. In high school, a time when Abbi would rather blend in than stand out. It´s summer now and Abbie sees an opportunity to shed that forced identity and present a new self. When she gets a job as a counselor at a day camp, she meets Noah, who reveals that he knows her secret. But Noah has a secret too. He wants Abbi to help him interview those in that iconic photo--but there´s more to this than what it seems. Both of these teens have secrets--some they share and other they keep. But it´s obvious that they each have more to gain then to lose if they are honest.
