Hope Book Summary

The #1 New York Times Bestseller

A bestselling book that is inspiring the nation: “We have written here about terrible things that we never wanted to think about again . . . Now we want the world to know: we survived, we are free, we love life.”

Two women kidnapped by infamous Cleveland school-bus driver Ariel Castro share the stories of their abductions, captivity, and dramatic escape

 
On May 6, 2013, Amanda Berry made headlines around the world when she fled a Cleveland home and called 911, saying: “Help me, I’m Amanda Berry. . . . I’ve been kidnapped, and I’ve been missing for ten years.”
 
A horrifying story rapidly unfolded. Ariel Castro, a local school bus driver, had separately lured Berry, Gina DeJesus, and Michelle Knight to his home, where he kept them chained. In the decade that followed, the three were raped, psychologically abused, and threatened with death. Berry had a daughter—Jocelyn—by their captor.
 
Drawing upon their recollections and the diary kept by Amanda Berry, Berry and Gina DeJesus describe a tale of unimaginable torment, and Pulitzer Prize–winning Washington Post reporters Mary Jordan and Kevin Sullivan interweave the events within Castro’s house with original reporting on efforts to find the missing girls. The full story behind the headlines—including details never previously released on Castro’s life and motivations—Hope is a harrowing yet inspiring chronicle of two women whose courage, ingenuity, and resourcefulness ultimately delivered them back to their lives and families.

    I've read this book several times as I've found it so inspirational. If these girls can make it through their ordeal day after day for 10 long yrs, then I should be able to get through life's ups and downs. Thank you Amanda, Gina, & Jocelyn!

    Very good book that can be shared with most ages. It gives just enough information that will help other young girls to be cautious. It also gives Hope to those who may have had similar experiences with sexual trauma.

    This book is inspiring. The strength of these girls is astonishing. It was troubling to read their experience but also it was very satisfying hearing their side of the story instead of people covering it on tv. I'm so greatful that these girls can move on with the lives they deserve.
