Winner Description: 
by Joan Bauer, and published by G.P. Putnam's Sons
Winner Blurb: 

Hope Was Here tells the story of sixteen-year-old Hope and her aunt and their move to a small town in Wisconsin to join the "short order dance" of life at the Welcome Stairways Diner. In the course of just a few months, Hope encounters issues as diverse as her customers: corruption in politics, a new love, serious illness and the meaning of family.

"Bauer juggles story lines as well as Hope juggles plates, and the lessons of waitressing expand into lessons about the essentials of life, said Parr."
