The Great Gilly Hopkins

We just finished a book called The Great Gilly Hopkins.
It was about a foster child named Galadriel Hopkins. She was sent to a foster home were she went to school and met a girl and made friends with her. What she really wanted was to live with her mom. She thought that her mom wanted to be with her to. But later on in the book her grandmother took her to live with her. At Christmas her mom came and Gilly wanted her to take her home but then she found out that the reason that her mom came was because her grand mother payed her mom to come.
Then she realized that she needed to live with her grandmother.

I liked this  book because Gilly always got into trouble and it had a lot of adventure in it.

  1. You did a nice job with your summary of the story. How would you describe Gilly?

  2. This is such a great book! It's nice that you shared your opinion about it in addition to summarizing. Were there any parts you related to especially?

  3. I love all of Katharine Paterson's books! I'm glad that you've made friends with Gilly. She's one of my favorites as well. You did a good job summarizing the book!
    Keep up the good slices!
