  • "At eleven, Gilly is nobody's real kid. If only she could find her beautiful mother, Courtney, and live with her instead of in the ugly foster home where she has just been placed! How could she, the great Gilly Hopkins, known throughout the county for her brilliance and unmanageability, be expected to tolerate Maime Trotter, the fat, nearly illiterate widow who is now her guardian' Or for that matter, the freaky seven-year-old boy and the shrunken blind black man who are also considered part of the bizarre "family"' Even cool Miss Harris, her teacher, is a shock to her. Gutsy Gilly is both poignant and comic as, behind her best barracuda smile, she schemes against them and everyone else who tries to be friendly. The reader will cheer for her as she copes with the longings and terrors of always being a foster child. Katherine Paterson, winner of the 1978 Newbery Medal for Bridge to Terabithia and of the 1977 National Book Award for The Master Puppeteer, again reaches across boundaries with her wit, compassion, and love, and here creates an immensely engaging story about a child's desperate search for a place to call home."@en

  • "Eleven-year-old Gilly Hopkins is famous for being brash, brilliant and completely unmanageable. None of her foster homes has been able to tame her yet. So when Gilly is sent to live with the Trotters - by far the strangest foster family of them all - she decides to put her brilliant mind to work. What she needs is a plan that will make her real mother rescue her so she can stop being a foster child once and for all. But the rescue doesnt work out quite the way Gilly planned..."
