A Boy Called Hope by Lara Williamson
Published by Usborne in March 2014
I am super excited for Lara’s debut novel. I’ve read the first chapter and already fallen in love with Dan, a child with a gorgeous view on life. If you would like to read the first chapter too, please click here.
I'm Dan Hope and deep inside my head I keep a list of things I want to come true.
For example, I want my sister, Ninja Grace, to go to university at the North Pole and only come back once a year.
I want to help Sherlock Holmes solve his most daring mystery yet. And if it could be a zombie mystery, all the more exciting.
I want to be the first eleven-year-old to land on the moon.
I want my dog to stop eating the planets and throwing them up on the carpet.
And finally, the biggest dream of all, I want my dad to love me.
A Boy Called Hope is a brave, bold and funny debut about family in all its shapes and sizes.
