The Great Gilly Hopkins

Eleven-year-old Gilly has been stuck in more foster families than she can remember, and she's hated them all. She has a reputation for being brash, brilliant, and completely unmanageable, and that's the way she likes it. So when she's sent to live with the Trotters — by far the strangest family yet — she knows it's only a temporary problem.

Gilly decides to put her sharp mind to work and get out of there fast. She's determined to no longer be a foster kid. Before long she's devised an elaborate scheme to get her real mother to come rescue her. Unfortunately, the plan doesn't work out quite as she hoped it would... and she starts to wonder if life with the Trotters is really so bad.

This classic middle grade novel, winner of the National Book Award, has moved generations of readers with it real and accessible look at the joys and struggles of adoption through the eyes of a wisecracking, ornery, completely unforgettable young heroine.

Description

"This Newbery Honor Book manages to treat a somewhat grim, and definitely grown-up theme with love and humor, making it a terrific read for a young reader who's ready to learn that 'happy' and 'ending' don't always go together." — Richard Farr, Amazon.com Reviews
