Hope always laughs when she thinks about her name. Why? Because it just doesn't fit. She's hopeless. Hope is in the foster system since her family died at this time she was 12. Now she's 14. She was in nice family's but 6 month ago she came in a family who punched her and slapped her and they just treated her horrible. And they still do. Hope is hopeless until she meets Lin. A total stranger.
