My Teaser Tuesday pick is: Hope was Here by Joan Bauer
Back of book summary: One new life . . . coming right up! When Hope and her aunt move from New York City to small town Wisconsin to run th elocal diner, Hope's not sure what to expect. Luckily, she's used to thinking on her feet 0 she hasn't become a terrific waitress by accident.

Because, after all, everyone could use a little hope to get through the tough times . . . even Hope herself.
"There's something about diner setup that soothes the soul. Something about making good coffee in a huge urn glistening in fluorescent light, something sweet about filling syrup pitchers and lining them on the back counter like soldiers ready to advance. It gives you courage to face another day." - pg. 61
