About This Item

Signed by Katherine Paterson on the title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket. Jacket art by Fred Marcellino. "The Great Gilly Hopkins is a perceptive story that draws strength from its finely delineated characters and rich, moving narrative" (Booklist). It went on to win several major accolades, including the 1979 National Book Award for Children's Literature, a 1979 [Christopher Award], the 1979 Jane Addams Award and a 1979 Newbery Honor.

Paterson, starring Sophie Nelisse, Julia Stiles, Glenn Close, Kathy Bates, Octavia Spencer, Bill Cobbs, and Billy Magnussen.

Eleven-year-old Gilly has been stuck in more foster families than she can remember, and she's disliked them all. She has a county-wide reputation for being brash, brilliant, and completely unmanageable. So when she's sent to live with the Trotters -- by far the strangest family yet -- Gilly decides to put her sharp mind to work. Before long she's devised an elaborate scheme to get her real mother to come rescue her.But the rescue doesn't work out, and the great Gilly Hopkins is left thinking that maybe life with the Trotters wasn't so bad ...
