Product description

Review

"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

* “By the end of this poignant debut, readers will be applauding Carley’s strength.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Readers will be cheering her on.” —Booklist

"This is a beautiful book, filled with hope. You'll cry and laugh along with Carley as she learns to lower her defenses enough to love--and, more surprisingly, be loved. It's a story you'll long remember." —Patricia Reilly Giff, Newbery Honor-winning author of Pictures of Hollis Woods and Lily's Crossing

"Undeniably affecting. Hunt's writing is strong and her characters well-developed and believable." —Publishers Weekly

"One for the Murphys is a riveting story…” —Examiner.com

"This novel speaks to the universal experience of growing up but will especially resonate with readers who have questioned the hands they have been dealt and wonder how to move forward nonetheless." —The Horn Book

"An astonishing debut! Lynda Mullaly Hunt's direct style of writing has readers rooting for Carley Connors and all of the Murphys from start to satisfying finish." —Leslie Connor, ALA Schneider Family Award-winning author of Waiting for Normal and Crunch

"An incredibly touching novel.” —TheStorySiren.com

“Absolutely astonishing.” —Bookalicious.org --This text refers to the paperback edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Such a good book! It made me feel all the good emotions at once.
By Reading_Tam_Ishly on 12 August 2021
"That we've both changed. That we're tired of having the world push us into places we don't want to be. That we're both scared of losing love that maybe we never had to begin with. That we can have whatever we want in our lives; it's only a matter of deciding."

*Content warnings for bullying, child neglect, abuse

I love the writing and how convincing the characters are.

The child characters are frustrating to deal with because they are so confused and they have been used to the idea that they don't deserve to be treated well because of the neglect and the abuse they have suffered all their lives.

I genuinely felt the frustration of the foster mother, Julie Murphy, when she was trying to keep things normal when her own two kids aren't listening to her and Carley is constantly on her way to prove she isn't used to the attention and care she's getting.

One good book to start reading young adult. It deals with fostering and neglected kids getting used to all the love and care they deserve.
