Reviewer Barbara Hoodless

Any young teenager reading this book will find it confronting, as the issues of domestic violence, bullying, refugees and multiculturalism are addressed. In the case of domestic violence, quite explicitly.
However there are equally as many positive outcomes to be gained from reading this book. Those of love and friendship, care and respect for others and even humour are encompassed.
A great title for the book: “Living on Hope Street”.
