Something Like Hope 
Delacorte Press    2010

        I loved the plot of Something Like Hope, but did not enjoy the profanity that filled the pages of this book. This book told a wonderful story of a seventeen year old girl named shavonne who had been in and out of juvinile detention facitilties since she was in her early teens and has a mother who never cared for her. Shavonne has a child at fifteen and cannot take are of her because she is violent and unstable ,but through all of her adventures Shavonne meets a new shrink who has as many problems as she does and can really help her. Will Shavonne turn her life around and see her daughter again? Or will she end up just like her own mother?         This we be a wonderful story without all the profanity!
