Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
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
