This is an auction for HOPE WAS HERE by Joan Bauer.

“When it comes to creating strong, independent, and funny female characters, Bauer is in a class by herself ... Bauer tells a multi-layered story with humour but does not gloss over the struggles.”
- a *** starred *** review in School Library Journal (US)

“Bauer has succeeded in creating another quirky, poignant, and funny novel about a strong girl who admits her frailties ... Hope’s story is highly recommended.”
- VOYA magazine (US)

“Another entry in Bauer’s growing collection of books about likable and appealing female teenagers with a strong vocational calling ... As always from Bauer, this novel is full of humour, starring a strong and idealistic protagonist, packed with funny lines, and peopled with interesting and quirky characters.”
- Kirkus Reviews (US)

Amazon.com review:

"When Hope and her aunt move to Wisconsin to take over the local diner, The owner, G.T., isn't quite ready to give up yet--in fact, he's decided to run for mayor against a corrupt candidate. As Hope starts to make her place at the diner, she also finds herself caught up in G.T.'s campaign--particularly his visions for the future. After all, as G.T. points out, everyone can use a little hope to help get through the tough times . . . even Hope herself. Filled with heart, charm, and good old-fashioned fun, this is Joan Bauer at her best."
