For ashleyolsen77:
It's because Tyler didn't cry as much when he was a baby. Remember? Hope's father left because Hope cried alot when she was young.

I cried near the end, when she told her mother that she hated being insulted. Hope is so strong! I wish I had her inner power

I randomly picked Call Me Hope off the shelves of my school's library, not really knowing what to expect. I started reading it, and almost immediatly, I was hooked. Not your average family problem book, but instead much better. I love the way Hope finds so many different ways to cope with her mom, all of them are so creative and inspiring. The end was great. I REALLY think anyone who sees this book should pick it up, you won't be dissapointed.
