I had a hard time getting into this book at first, but once I decided I would skip around to read essays by authors I truly enjoy reading, that’s when I felt like I could get behind this book. After I warmed up to those authors, I was able to go back to the essays that weren’t doing it for me initially. I did end up skipping the essay by James Dashner altogether because I can’t bring myself to read his writing after everything coming forward. One thing I really liked about this anthology was all of the different takes on hope and what hope looked for them all. Marie Lu’s piece on growing up in 1980s China was captivating, and I feel that I learned so much more about her in that one story than I could have known ever. I also loved Nicola Yoon’s essay about her relationship with her husband. It was beautiful to read about why she loved him so much and how she wouldn’t give up anything for him. It reminded me that love is worth fighting for. I definitely recommend this to people looking for a hopeful outlook in these bleak times. It’ll give you a few shots of hope inoculation (thanks, Gayle Forman).
