Without a single cliche character or plot point within a country mile of this story, Hopeless recounts the tale of an amazing racehorse who never wins a race. He strolls casually out of the starting gate, looks around to see if there’s anything of interest to stare at, and if he decides to run, he starts slowly and builds speed like a freight train. But when he finally chooses to run, he electrifies the 100,000 spectators with a demonstration of speed and endurance the like of which they’ve never seen or even heard about before. His unorthodox racing behavior unites and literally transforms the lives of people who themselves once felt worthless or hopeless. For any reader who has ever felt discouraged, unappreciated, belittled, or spitefully underestimated, this is a book for you.
