The Sudden Appearance of Hope

Claire North

8 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Science fiction

My name is Hope Arden. I am the girl the world forgets.

It started when I was sixteen years old.

A father forgetting to drive me to school. A mother setting the table for three, not four. A friend who looks at me and sees a stranger.

No matter what I do, the words I say, the crimes I commit - you will never remember who I am.

That makes my life tricky. It also makes me dangerous . . .

THE SUDDEN APPEARANCE OF HOPE is the tale of a girl no one remembers, yet her story will stay with you for ever.
