ABOUT THE BOOK

 The Great Gilly Hopkins
Written by Katherine Paterson

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 Mrs. Trotter and William Ernest by far the strangest family yet she knows it’s only a temporary problem.
