Something Like Hope

Something Like Hope is the story of seventeen year-old Shavonne.  She has had it rough…really, really rough.  She tells her story and as a reader I came to understand what motivated some of her decisions.  She has spent most of her teen years in and out of juvenile detention.  With help and a series of unexpected kindnesses she is able to tell the truth and begin to heal.  It is a raw story, but one that ends on hope, and affirms that small acts of kindnesses can make a difference.
