One For The Murphys.

Here is one of my top 10 book choices, it's: One For The Murphys. By Lynda Mullaly Hunt. 
It's a very fast read, it may have 224 pages but it sure makes you want to read it.
3 reasons to read this book:
1.)There is bullying involved and there are solutions to it.
2.)It gives great descriptions.
3.)Plants a picture in your mind.

Here is the summary:

"Here's you'r new family, Carly." Carly is now a foster child. Her stepfather is in jail. Mother in a mental hospital. Now Carly in a foster home. The Murphy's. When anyone is looking for a book take this  one with a box of tissues.
Carly Connors is 12 years old. She grew up with her mother in Las Vegas. But now she is going to live in Pennsylvania.
The Murphy's have 3 boys. No girls. Except Carly.
Since Carly is angry on the whole world, she's missing the fact that the Murphy's are REALLY trying for her to feel like one of them.
Carly never believed that "happy families" exist. Will she change her mind?
Here's the catch when finally Carly is feeling like one of them, news from her mother shake up her whole world forever.
I give this book a 5 out of 5.
Now I did my role and now it's you'r turn to read the book, rate it, and write a review. Hopefully you love the book as much as I did.
See you next time!!
