Summary

De la autora de la novela bestseller del New York Times, Como pez en el árbol.

Libro ganador del premio Junior Library Guild Gold Selection 2022

Carley usa el humor y su inteligencia de la calle para mantener sus muros emocionales altos y gruesos. Pero el día en que entra en adopción temporal y se muda con los Murphy, es como que le cayera un balde de agua fría encima. Esta familia cariñosa y muy activa le muestra a Carley una vida familiar estable que ella nunca pensó podría existir, y se siente como una extraterrestre en ese hogar perfecto. A pesar de su resistencia, los Murphy logran mostrarle cómo se siente pertenecer al núcleo familiar, hasta que un día, su madre decide que la quiere de vuelta con ella y Carley tiene que decidir dónde y cómo vivir. Ella no es realmente una Murphy, pero lo que ellos le han dado le ha abierto un nuevo futuro.
 
“La escritura de Hunt es intrépida y Una para los Murphys es una historia que es a la vez tierna, estimulante y hermosamente contada. Me sumergí en la historia de Carley desde la primera página. Ella es un personaje que no debe perderse ni olvidarse”. — Jacqueline Woodson, autora de Niña morena sueña, obra ganadora del National Book Award.
 
Ganadora del premio Tassy Walden que premia las nuevas voces de la literatura infantil.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

From the author of the New York Times bestselling novel Fish in a Tree!

Winner of the Junior Library Guild Gold Selection Award 2022

Carley uses humor and street smarts to keep her emotional walls high and thick. But the day she becomes a foster child, and moves in with the Murphys, she's blindsided. This loving, bustling family shows Carley the stable family life she never thought existed, and she feels like an alien in their cookie-cutter-perfect household. Despite her resistance, the Murphys eventually show her what it feels like to belong--until her mother wants her back and Carley has to decide where and how to live. She's not really a Murphy, but the gifts they've given her have opened up a new future.

"Hunt's writing is fearless and One For The Murphys is a story that is at once compassionate, thought-provoking and beautifully told. From the first page, I was drawn into Carley's story. She is a character not to be missed or forgotten." —Jacqueline Woodson, National Book Award-winning author of Brown Girl Dreaming

Winner of the Tassy Walden Award for New Voice in Children's Literature
