9780140313024: The Great Gilly Hopkins

Gilly Hopkins is a tough operator - she's super-cool and super-intelligent. And Gilly's not going to be 'had' by anyone: teacher, social worker or foster parent. All she wants is a reunion with her beautiful, long-lost mother. But just when it appears her dream might come true, things no longer seem quite so clear cut.

Review:

Gilly Hopkins is a determined-to-be-unpleasant 11-year-old foster kid who the reader can't help but like by the end. Gilly has been in the foster system all her life, and she dreams of getting back to her (as she imagines) wonderful mother. (The mother makes these longings worse by writing the occasional letter.) Gilly is all the more determined to leave after she's placed in a new foster home with a "gross guardian and a freaky kid." But she soon learns about illusions--the hard way. 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. (Ages 9 to 12) --Richard Farr

From the Back Cover:

The Great Gilly Hopkins cannot be tamed!

Newbery Honor Book
Winner of the National Book Award for Children's Literature
ALA Notable Children's Book
Jane Addams Book Award

Eleven-year-old Gilly has been stuck in more foster families than she can remember, and she's disliked 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. But unfortunately, the plan doesn't work out quite as she hoped it would. . . .
