Praise

"Hunt’s writing is fearless and One For The Murphys is a story that is at once compassionate, thought-provoking and beautifully told. From the first page, I was drawn into Carley’s story. She is a character not to be missed or forgotten." —Jacqueline Woodson, three-time Newbery Honor author of After Tupac and D Foster

“By the end of this poignant debut, readers will be applauding Carley’s strength.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Readers will be cheering her on.” —Booklist

"This is a beautiful book, filled with hope. You’ll cry and laugh along with Carley as she learns to lower her defenses enough to love–and, more surprisingly, be loved. It’s a story you’ll long remember." —Patricia Reilly Giff, Newbery Honor-winning author of Pictures of Hollis Woods and Lily’s Crossing

"Undeniably affecting. Hunt’s writing is strong and her characters well-developed and believable . . ." —Publishers Weekly

"One for the Murphys is a riveting story…” —Examiner.com

"This novel speaks to the universal experience of growing up but will especially resonate with readers who have questioned the hands they have been dealt and wonder how to move forward nonetheless." —The Horn Book

"An astonishing debut! Lynda Mullaly Hunt’s direct style of writing has readers rooting for Carley Connors and all of the Murphys from start to satisfying finish." —Leslie Connor, ALA Schneider Family Award-winning author of Waiting for Normal and Crunch

“…an incredibly touching novel.” —TheStorySiren.com

“Absolutely astonishing.” —Bookalicious.org
