One for the Murphys From the author of the New York Times bestselling novel Fish in a Tree

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

  • My review

    By Costa the savage
    I thought the book was going to be very interesting but instead it turned out to be boring. It focused too much on little details and the plot of the story. This book needed more bigger moments and I mean I was forced to read this for summer reading and it was bad. It did have some good moments but I just did not like the book.

  • Great book

    By Thtdailove
    Honestly for books like this the ending sucked because I need To reassured about what happens to Carley after she leaves, does she ever see Toni again, does Daniel ever contact her even though he is not suppose to. To me this book is so what left unfinished to me because I need to now if Carley's life turned out to great like she hoped to be because of Mrs. Murphy.

    This book is absolutely AMAZING! My teacher read this book to us and I was so excited for what was yet to come a must read! I recommend this for ages 10+ mostly because it is about a foster child and with some real struggles
