During this years global read aloud, our class is reading, "One for the Murphys". So far, we have read 7 chapters. The main character, Carley Connors, has been taken away from her mom, who is in hospital and placed in a foster home. Carley is used to being in an environment where she takes care of herself, and goes anywhere and does anything she wants. When she gets transferred to the Murphys house, she gets asked what she would like for meals, what she would like to do and if she would like to go anywhere; questions that she never used to get asked. She now has been given 3 brothers to share the house with. Michael Eric; the smallest (4 years old). Adam; the middle (is 7 or 8 and is obsessed with firetrucks). And Daniel; the oldest (10 or 11 years old and hates Carley the most, and Carley feels the same way). I can't forget about Julie Murphy; also referred to as Perky Murphy, and Mrs. Murphy by Carley.
