One for the Murphys is a great, realistic book. After her mom is hospitalized and she is sent to a foster family, Carley feels out of place. Life at the Murphys’ house is the opposite of when she lived alone with her mom. The book tells about how Carley’s feelings change, and how the Murphys go from feeling like someone else’s family to her family. I recommend One for the Murphys because it’s a great book with interesting, believable characters.
