Where there’s hope…

10 May

Hope Nation is a collection of essays (and one short story) from a wide range of YA authors who tell a wide range of stories about hope in the face of difficult times. Some of these times are recent and national, others are in the past and more personal. Regardless, each piece shows readers how the author overcame hardship or disappointment, or how they carry on even as problems remain unresolved. An anthology like this gives YA readers an opportunity to glimpse into a favorite author’s personal life. It can also bring new authors to readers who know only one or two authors in the collection.

Publisher’s Summary:We all experience moments when we struggle to understand the state of the world, when we feel powerless and–in some cases–even hopeless. The teens of today are the caretakers of tomorrow, and yet it’s difficult for many to find joy or comfort in such a turbulent society. But in trying times, words are power.

Some of today’s most influential young adult authors come together in this highly personal collection of essays and original stories that offer moments of light in the darkness, and show that hope is a decision we all can make.

Authors include: Atia Abawi, Renee Ahdieh, Libba Bray, Howard Bryant, Ally Carter, Ally Condie, Christina Diaz Gonzales, Gayle Forman, Romina Garber, I. W. Gregario, Kate Hart, Bendan Kiely, David Levithan, Alex London, Marie Lu, Julie Murphy, Jason Reynolds, Aisha Saeed, Nic Stone, Angie Thomas, Jenny Torres Sanchez, Jeff Zentner, and Nicola Yoon.
