it was amazing
bookshelves: read-in-2010, newbery, kid-lit
Read in January, 2010

Oh man. I never read this as a kid because I thought Gilly was a dumb name and it had an ugly cover. (I see they still haven't given it any kind of glam makeover. Mistake on the publisher's part?) But LOVED reading it now ... even though the ending wasn't what I was hoping for. Gilly is such a smart, tough, pain-in-the-ass little cookie.
