Description: Hope, an empathetic, young girl, is confined more to home during the COVID-19 pandemic. After hearing her mother talk about having pen pals as a child, she decides to write letters to her friends to keep in touch. Her friends respond, telling Hope about their fears, concerns, and anger over the circumstances in which they find themselves. It's not all doom and gloom, though, as the children also relay stories of joys and accomplishments along the way. The letters, based on real children's answers to questions asked by the author, and Hope's replies, are found in the book.
