A heartfelt and funny new novel about forgiveness and redemption, and about how hope is the ultimate act of rebellion, perfect for fans of John Green and Becky Albertalli. Growing up in a conservative Christian household isnt easy for rock-obsessed Hope Cassidy. She's spent her whole life being told that the devil speaks through Led Zeppelin, but its even worse for her sister, Faith, who feels like she cant be honest about dating the record shop cashier, Mavis. That is, until their youngest sister hears word of their "sinful" utopia and outs Faith to their parents. Now theres nowhere for Faith to go but the Change Through Grace conversion centeror running away. Following Faiths disappearance, their family is suddenly broken. Hope feels a need to rebel. She gets a tattoo and tries singing through the hurt with her Janis Joplin-style voice. But when her long-time crush Danny comes out and is subsequently kicked out of his house, Hope cant stand by and let history repeat itself. Now living in Faiths room, Danny and Hope strike up a friendship...and a band. And their music just might be the answer to dethroning Alt-Rite, Dannys twin brother's new hate-fueled band. With a hilarious voice and an open heart, Hopepunk is a novel about forgiveness, redemption, and finding your home, and about how hope is the ultimate act of rebellion.

Loved it! After Hope‘s younger sister Charity outs their older sister Faith, their ultra-conservative Christian parents plan to send Faith to a conversion camp to “fix” her. Instead, Faith runs away. Nearly a year later, when a fellow classmate, Danny, is kicked out of his home and ostracized by his friends for coming out, Hope gives him a place to stay. Their friendship deepens and they form a punk band to counter all the hate in their community.

Short but interesting read on hope punk, novels that focus on hope and redemption. Hope is something we can all use a dose of now and then.

I loved this! Hope's conservative Christian family is broken after her older sister runs away after being outed as lesbian. A year later, she rescues a classmate who is kicked out after coming out, and together form a rock band to provide resistance and hope. Hopepunk!
