Hope Runs is a story where Claire visits an orphanage in Kenya for an overnight stay, only to have her heart stolen by the children there. After she and her best friend decide to stay longer and start a running program for the kids there, fifteen year old Sammy takes a special place in her heart. Only to find that their time together is soon coming to an end.
Hope Runs showed the story from Claire and Sammy's personal perspectives, their troubles and fears, as well as their hopes. It was cool reading how they formed a special bond with each other and were able to see each other in the U.S. As each are going through their personal trials, they get to cherish the time they have together.
It personally wasn't a big "I love this book!" but I do like it, though this is my personal opinion, you'll have to read it to find out what you think! :)
