The Great Gilly Hopkins

Dear Readers,

Galadriel Hopkins is not your ordinary teenage girl.  She's full of spirit, wit and charm.  Occasionally her big personality overpowers her need to experience friendship, family and love.   Gilly, will become more like a friend who appears hurt on the outside, but does everything she can to conceal it.   At times, we'll wonder how she can act so different and yet appear to feel something else entirely.  We'll focus on learning how to identify these moments  in the text, seek out bold new language and track her development in the novel.
