    I'm an unsure kettle of fish about this one, to be honest. The story was quite emotional and I absolutely loved the multiculturality it showed -- but it had like 7+ narrators and it's such a small book that it was (a) confusing, (b) I never really got to know anyone, and (c) it's hard to feel invested when there's SO much going on in SUCH a short amount of time. I am the sad.It's basically about these different families all living on one street. We start off with Kane's family, who has a mega-ab [...]

    این قصه یه معجونِ شگفت انگیز بود به اسم زندگی.این معجون پر بود از احساسات ناب و از احساسات تلخی که دوست داری ازشون فرار کنی، از شادی ای که توی دلت مثل پروانه قلقلکت میده. معجون این قصه مثل سر کشیدن زندگی بود، سر کشیدن زندگیِ اهالی خیابان امید.قصه ی خیابان امید یه قصه ی هزار داستا [...]

Terrified his father will return, Kane is resolute and will sacrifice his benevolence to defend his family. While Kane is resentful, brother Sam continues to regress and is plagued by nightmares of his father. The narrative commences with perspectives from brothers Kane and Sam, their father physically assaulting th [...]

    A gritty realistic read with hope built through diverse friendships and familial ties. TW Note: It explores domestic violence, post-traumatic stress disorder and racism.

    A contemporary snapshot of life in Melbourne. The people who live in Hope Street are a mixed bunch of Aussies, immigrants and refugees. Throw into the mix the tragic consequences of domestic violence and you have a gritty, powerful, heart-wrenching novel.

    Living on Hope Street is a beautiful novel that shows the true beating heart of Australia. It is the representation of the Australia I grew up in and live in with real Australians-refugees, those in inter-racial relationships, cultures that represent all the different waves of migration in Australia. Demet has created such distinct voices for each of her characters, from seven-year-old Sam who is terrorised by his home-life to 70 year-old Mr Bailey who is a Vietnam vet and struggling with the ch [...]

    Living on Hope Street by Demet Divaroren is a beautifully written, novel. Although this book is YA I feel that adults would also enjoy this story set in multicultural Melbourne. Demet Divaroren tells the story of the people who live on Hope Street with great compassion and understanding. You just want the kids in the story to be happy. Kane and Sam are brothers and when Kane tries to protect his mother and Sam from the violence of their father the scenes are written with empathy. In some ways th [...]

    A great work of Australian Literature. I was extremely lucky to win a copy of this wonderful book from the author. I loved every word of this story. It was both realistic and sincere. An Aussie gem.Set in an average Australian suburb in Melbourne, this is the tale of the people of Hope Street. A multicultural neighbourhood that, at first, seems a little disconnected. We have Kane, who is determined to protect his brother and mother from an abusive father at any cost, even if it means becoming a [...]

    I received a copy of this title form Allen & Unwin for review.Ten Second Synopsis:Kane and Sam live with an abusive father. Mrs Aslan misses her estranged daughter and granddaughter. Gugu and her family are adjusting to life in Australia and Mr Bailey is frightened of the way his street has changed. Living on Hope Street is a snapshot into the lives of this diverse neighbourhood.There's a certain grittiness wrapped in dry humour inherent in many Australian stories and Living on Hope Street i [...]

    This review can be found at littlebigreads“We all love someone, we all fear something. Sometimes it’s right next door, or even closer.”Where do you begin writing a review when a book has had such a profound effect on you, one that you’re not expecting? You have so much to say, yet you’re not quite sure how to say it because nothing can prepare you for the impact those first few pages have on you. As you continue to read you feel hopeful…both for the lives of these everyday suburban p [...]

    An exceptional Australian voice. Demet Divaroren jumps right into Hope Street and lays it bare. Hope Street is a typical suburban road that has been totally changed by the influx of new residents from many different social and cultural backgrounds. Many of the residents are suffering from the aftermath of war and/or violence and there is an undertone of anger and aggression. Mr and Mrs Bailey's house is one of only a few in which the owner occupiers have lived for decades, and Mr Bailey is disma [...]

    More reviews on the blog: wordsandwarpaintblog.wordpresThis book revolves around a few characters, with all their stories tying in together. Each chapter is dedicated to a different character, describing the events that take place through their eyes.First we have Sam and Kane, two brothers who live with an abusive father and a loving mother. As a result of the abuse Sam, the younger sibling, suffers from a number of side effects including nightmares and not being able to control his bladder when [...]

    A raw and confronting story that covers very intense issues like domestic violence and hot topics like immigration and the hope that stems from breaking down of barriers and stereotypes that can happen when people unite. The story is written from various perspectives of different cultures and ages and each voice was so distinguished, it's easy to follow each character. Very well written, very important - such a great insight into suburban life today and makes you realise, sometimes, you just don [...]

    This novel starts off with an incident of domestic violence- and I nearly stopped reading right there- which would have been a shame, as the novel is engaging and has an important message. The polyphonic style, with each chapter foregrounding the perspective of a different person living in Hope Street, the range of people- refugees from Africa, new migrants from the middle east, a Vietnam Vet all add to the texture of the novel which promotes the idea that we are all better off if we work togeth [...]

    Living on Hope Street is a beautifully written, gritty novel set in an everyday street in multicultural Melbourne. The characters - so vivid they jump off the page - all have their struggles and horrors: domestic violence, racism, the after-effects of the atrocities of war. Everyone's story is sensitively handled by Demet Divaroren: in fact, I was moved to tears by something that happened to one of the initially least sympathetic characters in the book.The stand-out characters are Kane and Sam, [...]

    This is a truly beautiful piece of writing that reflects modern Australia extremely well. A superb debut novel from a talented young writer.

    A very interesting book about a very low socio-economic street with different issues, but they all come back to the first family and the domestic violence, as it states very late in the book that the street revolves around them.The multi-narrative in this was very well done, capturing the essence of teenagers, and young primary age children, and adults, one who had a hard time with English.I did notice that the adults were written in the 3rd person, as opposed to the children and teens, which wa [...]

    A snapshot of Australian suburbia (possibly the Brimbank/Melton area in Melbourne with Mr.Bailey's dog called Sunshine?) in this ethnically diverse, inclusive Young Adult novel. It was refreshing to see a Turkish character (Mrs Aslan) tell bits of the story from her point of view, as the last time I saw an Australian Immigrant Turkish character in a book was in Maureen MCcarthy's novel Fatimafrom the In Between Series published in the mid 80's, which was written in a third person narrative. And [...]

    what can I say . this was an absolute awesome read couldn't put it down . Every character had a story to tell, the multicultural story line in one of Melbourne's streets and the different families that lived there actually made me believe that it could be an actually true story and that quote "behind closed doors" is perfect for this book so many emotions, so well written, It was heartbreaking, my goodness young Sam made me cry, Kane trying to be such a man but such a boy and when Mr Bailey st [...]

    First up, I received this book through a giveaway. If I had purchased it myself however, I would still have been pleased with my purchase. It was a sensitive, well-written story, with details revealed about each character, so that you learned to empathise with even characters who at first glance seemed unlikeable. It reminded me of one of my favorite books "Bombay Time" by Thrity Umrigar. Each chapter is written from the point of view of a different person on the street, and the author was able [...]

    I was given an ARC to review for a magazine. It was a really great book that dealt with some intense issues (such as refugees and the popular discussion of immigration, sexuality, domestic violence, et cetera) and I really enjoyed it.

    Very interesting read about life on Hope street-Australian suburban street. So many different families -violent ones, refugees, different nationalities. They all kept to themselves but united when a little boy wanted to help the refugee family. Quite a quick read

    I loved this book!! the characters were so realistic and the story was so eye catching. A great recommended read
