I also have to put up with fifth graders. Like when some 5th graders took Logan's hat. The theme is don't judge a book by its cover. Because Gilly thought the new family was ugly. I think the author likes to write realistic fiction because this book was realistic fiction. I thought the author used a lot of similies because I saw a lot. I think the author should have put in pictures because it would have helped me picture things. I think the author had a good ending because it surprised me.
I recommend this book to people who like sad books. Because it's sad. And that's The Great Gilly Hopkins!!!
