Sometimes looking to the past helps you find your future.
Abbi Hope Goldstein is like every other teenager, with a few
smallish exceptions: her famous alter ego, Baby Hope, is the
subject of internet memes, she has asthma, and sometimes
people spontaneously burst into tears when they recognize
her. Abbi has lived almost her entire life in the shadow of
the terrorist attacks of September 11. On that fateful day,
she was captured in what became an iconic photograph: in the
picture, Abbi (aka "Baby Hope") wears a birthday crown and
grasps a red balloon; just behind her, the South Tower of
the World Trade Center is collapsing.
Now, fifteen years later, Abbi is desperate for anonymity
and decides to spend the summer before her seventeenth
birthday incognito as a counselor at Knights Day Camp two
towns away. She's psyched for eight weeks in the company of
four-year-olds, none of whom have ever heard of Baby Hope.
Too bad Noah Stern, whose own world was irrevocably
shattered on that terrible day, has a similar summer plan.
Noah believes his meeting Baby Hope is fate. Abbi is sure
it's a disaster. Soon, though, the two team up to ask
difficult questions about the history behind the Baby Hope
But is either of them ready to hear the answers?
