A bestsellingbook that isinspiring 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.

    REVIEW QUOTES
Praise for "Hope: A Memoir of Survival in Cleveland" [C]ompulsively readable. . . . Berry and DeJesus s memoir sections are startlingly illuminating and genuinely inspiring. It s astounding to read how the young women kept up their spirits and their hopes even while being held captive by a monstrously cold, self-pitying brute. "" "The Washington Post " [A] breathtaking accomplishment. What could have been a record of two victims who endure the unendurable at the hands of a monster, is, instead, the story of two young and frightened girls as they come of age and, against all odds, come to an understanding of themselves and their tormenter. They emerge from the house on Seymour Avenue with an insight and compassion that many adults never grasp. " The Cleveland Plain Dealer" "" "Hope" is riveting, chilling, powerful and unforgettable. From raw emotion to quiet determination, Berry and DeJesus show the world the strength of hope. " Deseret News" The bravery and resolve that Berry and DeJesus convey in this well-crafted memoir is both astonishing and inspiring " Publishers Weekly" [A] compelling chronicle of Berry and DeJesus' harrowing experiences in captivity, told in their own words and in a journal that Berry kept on scraps of paper . . . . A nuanced testament to the complexity of the human spirit. " Kirkus Reviews""
