having a trailer.
start out with the title cover.
elaborate on the plot while spoiling as little as possible.
adding a bit of humor with it.
A) The first part of the novel where Carley persevered over an obstacle
was when she first arrived at the Murphys, it was a totally different environment for her so she had to persevere and change herself to fit in with the murphys
The second part of the novel where carley persevered over an obstacle was when she had her first day at school, when she had her first day at school there was already someone who didn't like her and almost instantly started a fight with another student.She persevered and became friends with the student she started to fight with (Toni)
B) If I was in Carley's Position right now I would be torn, because she has to make a decision that will impact her future so if I were her I would go to Mrs.Murphy and ask what she thinks would be best for me.(since i'm really bad at making decisions)
Hello Sunrise Ridge!!!!
How are you all doing?
So today we skyped with you and i didn't get to ask you guys my questions so here they are
My opinions on these questions are
Things that I know
* Carley comes from abusive parents
* Carley lived in Vegas and in Connecticut
* Carley is now under the care of the Murphys, a kind and loving family
* The Murphys are a family of 5,
Jack Murphy (Husband/Dad)
Julie Murphy (Wife/Mom)
Daniel Murphy (Oldest Son)
Adam Murphy (Middle Son)
Michael Eric (Youngest Son)
* Daniel doesn't really get along with Carley
* Carley isn't really getting along with her classmates
* Carley plays basketball
Things I wonder
* In a chapter she talked about how her brother teased her so potential brother chapter ????
* When will the next major disaster happen
* When will Carley's biological mom appear + Dennis
Picture to describe Carley's life so far
#GRA14OFTM #Predictions I predict that Mrs.Murphy n Jack Murphy will fight soon n that Daniel wil start to hangout with Carley n not h8 SD
My thoughts about the book for the first 7 chapters
at first i thought the book was about a family that runs into a small fortune but it tears the family apart but now I see that what I first thought about the book was actually quite close.The book was about that adopted a child and it tears the family apart... kind of.
The first chapter of the book I thought was quite interesting and made me want to read more.The next few chapters was about how Carley (the main character in my opinion) is fitting in with the Murphys her new family, personally I didnt think it was necessary to write 3 chapters about how Carley is fitting in, 2 chapters would've been enough for me.but in chapters 5-6 I think it's cool to see how the family members are going to adapt to Carley.In chapter 7 things began to clear up. It was quite a shock when the big secret is revealed,
(trying not to spoil anything) it really messed with my head.
I hope that the rest of the book will be as good as... wait .. no.. I KNOW that the rest of the book will be as good, if not even better than the first 7 chapters
In chapter seven of One For The Murphys we explore more on Carley's past as she runs away from the Murphys, we discover that not only was Carley's stepfather abusive but her mom whom she loved also abused her (Carley).It was quite the plot twist that no one saw coming.I remember when I read the final sentence I was speechless.I feel that the author did a great job in deceiving me and making me think that Carley's mom was the good guy (girl).
