The Great Gilly Hopkins by Katherine Paterson, is a book about a little girl that got sent from home to home over and over again. Finally Gilly goes to a foster home and the foster mom’s name is Mrs. Trotter. She has another foster boy there. His name is William Ernest. Gilley hates the foster mom. She said that she is a fat hippo.
I feel bad that this can happen in real life and that kids have to go through being sent from foster home to foster home, over and over again. I would never want to have to walk in Gilly’s shoes in my life. One of my best friends from the day I was born was going though a lot. When she was one, her parents got divorced and she stayed with her mom and went with her dad on the weekends. It is now 2017 and she's eleven. Her mom had another baby with a different guy. Her mom now sees her on the weekends. My friend that's 11 is now with her dad. I don't get to see her as much any more.
