Award winning author

With unforgettable characters, this heartfelt, young adult story explores cross-cultural friendships, difficult family relationships, racism and redemption while shining a light on contemporary society.

Kane will do everything he can to save his mother and little brother Sam from the violence of his father, even if it means becoming a monster himself. Mrs Aslan will protect the boys no matter what – even though her own family is in pieces. Ada wants a family she can count on, while she faces new questions about herself. Mr Bailey is afraid of the refugees next door, but his worst fear will take another form. And Gugulethu is just trying to make a life away from terror. On this street, everyone comes from different places, but to find peace they will have to discover what unites them.

'Living on Hope Street is a big-hearted, compassionate work. Divaroren is a ferociously good storyteller and every character breathes life, every character convinces.'
Christos Tsiolkas, award-winning author of The Slap

'Living on Hope Street is all about diversity, stereotypes, friendships across cultures, about what is happening behind doors that is being 'seen' but people are choosing to ignore. A voice has been given to the Australian people from many cultures, both those misunderstood and those accepted. I without a doubt recommend this book ... Congratulations to the author Demet Divaroren for writing what is bound to be a much loved piece of fiction.'
