    Great book.REALLY loved it. I liked how it took Carley into foster care and Carley told how she felt about her Mom and the Murphy’s and comparing them. And she is brave and kind AND my favorite character!

    One for the Murphy’s is a very good book. The book is sad and happy. Carley was very sad that she had to go to a different family. The happy part is when she mad a friend.

    One for the Murphys a well written book with lots of twists and turns. I picked up this book after my friend told me it was a great book. When I first started to read this book it was a tad bit boring, but it quickly got a lot better. I could really fell what Carley was feeling. Throughout this story Carley changes a lot she learns about who she is. I would highly recommend this book. Even if you don’t really like reading you will enjoy this heart breaking and heart warming story of a twelve year old girl who’s mother’s bad choses leave her as a foster kid.

    When her mother’s choice affects her whole life in just one night, Carley Conners is not quite sure how to keep her composure. She is sent to a foster home where she longs for her old life back, though she can’t seem to forgive her mother for that wretched choice. She begins to enjoy her foster family, and she even catches herself wishing it was hers. When she finally gets the long awaited news that her mother is okay and can see her, she is filled with mixed emotions. Will she go back with her mom? Will the Murphys adopt her? Will she even have a choice?
    Throughout the whole book you will find yourself willing Carley to do the right thing. This book is filled with so much emotion, and you may find that you relate to the book. It is a matter of Carley wishing for the thing she is missing; her own mother, a loving family, a place where she gets to live her childhood.

    What a lovely, thoughtful post! It took me right back to the way I felt when I turned the last page! Kate Davie

    One for the Murphys is an amazing book. I encourage you to read it. I am usually not a big reader but once I started, I couldn’t put it down. The characters are described so well. My favorite character is Carly. In this book Carly is sent to stay with the Murphys. She has never had a sibling before but the Murphys have three boys. Carly learns to express her feelings and how to trust.

    This book made me cry. I love the the bond carley makes with the Murphy’s. You shoul read it because you really can feel the story.

    Yes — the consensus at my school is that it is at least a three-hanky book! Kate Davie

    This book is amazing and really grabs from the start. I love that Carley had a great time and enjoyed her stay. It is a little bit eye watering at some points, but is mostly a happy story. I can’t explain how intreguing this book is in words, but one of my favorite parts is the relationship between the Murphy boys and Carley

    This is a really good and sad book!!!

    This book made me cry. I was telling my mom about the book and I started to cry. It’s really sad because Carly has been through so much. I couldn’t imagine a world like that. I don’t know how she can live like that. Personally I would cry everyday if that happened to me. I really recommend this book if you like to read a kind of sad story. I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don’t forget to think about how you would feel it would make the book 10 times better if that’s even possible! And remember write a comment to tell everyone how you liked the book!!!And don’t forget try to read all of the DCF books you can and DO NOT FORGET TO READ THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I especially don’t like the part when Michel Eric had a seizure and went to the hospital. It was really nice of Carley to give him the purple giraffe.

    One for the Murphys made me cry. I think that this book would touch every ones heart that read it. I disliked when all the times she went to see her mom. I wish that she could have gone to see her mom once and clear everything once. Over all this book was amazing and really changed the way I look at life!

    I am really enjoying the book One For The Murphys, although I have not finished it yet. It is really interesting and I bet some people can relate to the main character. I don’t want to give too much away, but this book kind of reminded me of the book Made In The U.S.A. in some ways. I love both books and I will be recommending this to all of my friends. It captures the feeling of someone who feels like they don’t belong, and is trying to find their place. I really love this book so far!

    I’m not done with the book, but I like it so far! I wish that Carley’s parents weren’t so mean to her, but I like the Murpheys because the people in the family are nice. I hope that other people read this book.
