Hope Was Here Chapter 15

By Joan Bauer

Chapter 15

  • Deena shows up at the diner and when she pays more attention to the menu than the daughter she hasn't seen in years, it sends a teary-eyed Hope running into the kitchen.
  • She's about to crumble like a stale oatmeal cookie but Braverman gets her to laugh by putting on a clown's nose and making funny faces.
  • Hope leaves the kitchen wearing the clown nose and puts on a great show as she delivers her orders; even Deena cracks a smile.
  • Deena eats and runs, but not before telling Hope how great it was to see her and that it pains her to say goodbye.
  • She actually compliments Hope on her skills as a waitress but it doesn't exactly fill the void Hope's been feeling for years.
