Since his dad ran off with the lady from the chip shop, Dan Hope's life has gone a bit topsy-turvy. So Dan decides to sort out his messy, muddled, madcap family, starting with getting his dad back. But as one genius plan after another goes pear-shaped, Dan starts to realize that your real family aren't always the people you share your name with. Thought-provoking and laugh-out-loud funny, A Boy Called Hope is a bold and astonishingly moving book about family life in all its shapes and sizes.
