About Hope Nicely’s Lessons for Life
Meet Hope Nicely.
She’s the character you won’t be able to resist falling in love with,
in the novel that you probably really need right now.
Hope Nicely hasn’t had an easy life. But she’s happy enough living with her mum, Jenny Nicely, and she loves her job, walking other people’s dogs. She’s a bit different, but as Jenny always tells her, she’s a rainbow person, a special drop of light. It’s just… there’s something she needs to know. Why did her birth mother abandon her in a cardboard box on a church step twenty-five years ago? And did she know that drinking while pregnant could lead to Hope being born with Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder? In a bid to find her birth mother and the answers to these questions, Hope decides to write her autobiography. Despite having been bullied throughout school, Hope bravely joins an evening class where she will not only learn the lessons of writing, but may also begin to discover more about the world around her, about herself and even make some (human) friends. But when Jenny suddenly falls ill, Hope realises there are many more lessons to come…

‘I can honestly say I’ve never read a book quite like Hope Nicely’s Lessons for Life. I knew from page one that this novel was something special, but I didn’t realise that I could care for a fictional character as deeply as I came to care for Hope.’ – Sarah Bauer, Senior Editor at Bonnier Books UK
