Product description

Review

"Where do you begin writing a review when a book has had such a profound effect on you, one that you're not expecting? You have so much to say, yet you're not quite sure how to say it because nothing can prepare you for the impact those first few pages have on you . . . This book, based on modern Australian suburban life, not only enlightens us about the tough issues that many Australian families face, but also shares the heartwarming aspects too . . . The author has captured each character and brought them to life so vividly that at the end of the book I didn't want to say goodbye, I felt that each one had more stories to share. Living on Hope Street is all about diversity, stereotypes, friendships across cultures, about what is happening behind doors that is being 'seen' but people are choosing to ignore. A voice has been given to the Australian people from many cultures, both those misunderstood and those accepted. I without a doubt recommend this book . . . Congratulations to the Author Demet Divaroren for writing what is bound to be a much loved piece of fiction." --Little Big Reads "Living on Hope Street is a big-hearted, compassionate work. Divaroren is a ferociously good storyteller and every character breathes life, every character convinces. This book is an absolute joy to read." --Christos Tsiolkas --This text refers to the paperback edition.
