Dear Hope Jones…

If you’ve read either of the Hope Jones books, you’ll know that Hope publishes her own email address on her blog, and invites readers to get in touch with her.

She has had some wonderful messages – including a fabulous email from a reader called Rosa.

Rosa also sent a brilliant speech which she had written.

I was so impressed that I asked Rosa if I could publish her speech here, and I was delighted when she said yes.

I hope you’ll enjoy reading what Rosa has written – and perhaps you’ll be inspired to write a speech of your own.

What’s your resolution?

Happy new year! Let’s hope 2021 is better than 2020.

At the beginning of the first Hope Jones book, Hope makes a resolution:

The second Hope Jones is actually set a little later in the year, but at the beginning of the book, Hope makes another resolution: she is going to become a vegetarian.

Hope tries being a vegan – and tries to persuade her family to give up meat too – but ends up as a flexitarian.

If you want to know more about her journey, and the food that she eats, and what she discovers about farms, farming, and climate change, then you should read Hope Jones Will Not Eat Meat.

I hope you enjoy it!
