One for the MurphysAvailable FormatsPaperback Book
Mrs. Murphy is nothing at all like Carley’s mother—she cooks meals from scratch and she actually takes Carley shopping instead of stealing clothes from the Salvation Army drop box. Angry and distrustful, Carley keeps her distance at first. But soon she finds herself protecting the younger boys from a neighborhood bully, teaching the older brother how to play basketball, and feeling like part of a normal family for the first time in her life.
But then news from her mother shakes her world—and Carley’s forced to make the most difficult decision of her life in this moving and powerful read.
Comes with tearjerker tissues.
