This winner of the 1979 National Book Award for Children's Literature and many other distinguished awards is filled with love and compassion as it tells the story of an 11-year-old girl who yearns for a real family.

Eleven-year-old Gilly has been stuck in more foster families than she can remember, and she's disliked them all. She has a county-wide reputation for being brash, brilliant, and completely unmanageable. So when she's sent to live with the Trotters -- by far the strangest family yet -- Gilly decides to put her sharp mind to work. Before long she's devised an elaborate scheme to get her real mother to come rescue her.

But the rescue doesn't work out, and the great Gilly Hopkins is left thinking that maybe life with the Trotters wasn't so bad ...

Fantastic Read...For Adults and Pre-Teens July 29, 2011
I give it a five because it was an excellent book. This textbook is about an 11 year old foster girl who is determined to not care, but deep down, she just wants someone to love her. After her foster family moves to Florida and leaves her behind "like all the rest of the trash", Gilly is sent to live with Trotter, who, at first she can't stand but soon learns to love. This textbook near the end brought tears to my eyes, it was so touching. And it is so well written that the reader can't help but put her/himself in Gilly's place and feel her pain. Katherine Patterson did a wonderful job, this is an excellent textbook.
