True: Delly Pattison likes surpresents (presents that are a surprise). The day the Boyds come to town, Delly's sure a special surpresent is on its way. But lately, everything that she thinks will be good and fun turns into trouble. She's never needed a surpresent more than now. True: Brud Kinney wants to play basketball like nothing anybody's ever seen. When the Boyds arrive, though, Brud meets someone who plays like nothing he's ever seen. True: Ferris Boyd isn't like anyone Delly or Brud have ever met. Ferris is a real mysturiosity (an extremely curious mystery). True: Katherine Hannigan's first novel since her acclaimed Ida B is a compelling look at the ways friendships and truths are discovered. It's all true ( . . . sort of).

This was an excellent book that handled abuse, behavior problems and love of family in a unique way. It grabbed my attention the whole time with topic of select mutism, the power of good teachers and friendship.

Delly Pattison learns about friendship and truth as she grows beyond impulsive behavior and begins to consider others during her twelfth year. Delly is helped along by family members and friends who appreciate her lively antics yet encourage her to stop to think. Friendship, loyalty and trust are explored in a humorous story with a serious side to it.
