Twelve-year-old Carley is tough. Living in Las Vegas will do that. But she never could have prepared for a betrayal that parks her in foster care.
Twelve-year-old Carley is tough. Living in Las Vegas will do that. But she never could have prepared for a betrayal that parks her in foster care. When she’s assigned to the Murphys, a spirited family of five, she finally feels seen, heard, and loved. But just when she’s starting to feel like one of the Murphys, some shocking news from her mother turns her world upside-down.
One for the Murphys is a memorable story that every reader will love. The author, Lynda Mullaby Hunt, did an excellent job in this book. She makes the characters seem very realistic, especially Carley. It almost seems as if you’re there with her, experiencing her fear, her doubt, her love. Her sadness.
This book is both funny and sad. A good mix. It makes you really think. About how Carley’s feeling, about how you’re feeling. Most books don’t make you do this. One for the Murphys is a really unique book.
I found no fault in this book. It was almost as if the author was following a recipe to perfection.
One for the Murphys is an exceptional and powerful story, and every reader will instantly fall in love. There is no book better. So, if you want to make your day a hundred times better, read this book!
