In this powerful narrative non-fiction debut, Sarah Carr provides readers with a vivid and sobering portrait of education in twenty-first-century America. Hope Against Hope works in the same tradition as Random Family and There Are No Children Here to capture the challenges of growing up and learning in a troubled world.

Carr portrays the education system through the profiles of three individuals: Geraldlynn, a lively astute 14-year-old whose family was displaced by Hurricane Katrina; Aidan, a fresh-faced Harvard grad hoping to reform New Orleans' education system in Katrina's aftermath; and Mary Laurie, a veteran educator who is principal of one of the first public high schools to reopen after Katrina. Together, these three individuals demonstrate the challenges of change, the difficulties of reform and re-building, and the possibility of hope. While Carr uses New Orleans as her backdrop, her measured study of the city's education system creates a portrait of the American education system in the 21st century.
