Newbery Honor book, The Great Gilly Hopkins, is coming to the big screen on Feb. 19!
Gilly has been in the foster care system for many years, and prides herself on being a troublemaker. Will she be able to settle into a new, somewhat quirky, foster family, or will she finally be reunited with her birth mother? How will the movie version compare to the book?
