Description


This Newbery Honor Book from bestselling author Katherine Paterson is now a major motion picture.

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.

Gilly decides to put her sharp mind to work and get out of there fast. She’s determined to no longer be a foster kid. Before long she's devised an elaborate scheme to get her real mother to come rescue her. But unfortunately, the plan doesn’t work out quite as she hoped it would….

Praise For…


“The arrogant, bitter heroine of this moving story is a wisecracking, gum-chewing kid who has been shuttled from one foster home to another. . . . [She is portrayed] with warmth and wit, in a story filled with love and compassion.”

“This perceptive story draws strength from its finely delineated characters and rich, moving narrative.”

“This fabulous book will give you rich discussions about her anger and how in that anger, she reacts without thinking.” 15 Banned Books Every Tween and Teen Should Read
