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).

    " Loved this book. Delly loves surpresents and Dellyventures but somehow every time she thinks something will be fun, it turns into trouble. Now she is sure a surpresent is out there waiting for her, but when she gets that tingly feeling all she sees is an old car with a man and a boy. As Delly makes a new friend, works really hard at not getting into trouble, and learns the importance of asking, many new twists and turns develop in the story. I love how Delly creates new words that make perfect sense when you read them. (A surpresent is a surprise present.) Bet you had already guessed that. The characters are well developed and you truly feel for them. "

    " I loved Katherine Hannigan's Ida B...And Her Plans to Maximize Fun, Avoid Disaster, and (Possibly) Save the World so when I learned that she had a new book coming out, I was really excited. This book does not disappoint! Hannigan returns to that lovely combination of sweetness and heartbreak and hope in the story of four kids whose lives unexpectedly and serendipitously intersect. If you're a fan of Ida B... or Kate di Camillo's Because of Winn-Dixie, I feel confident saying that you will love this book! "

    " The first book in our Mother Daughter Book Club. It took a few chapters for us to get into it but once we did we didn't want to stop. We both enjoyed the "Delly" words and we have even started to use a few! We especially loved the message in the book. "

    " This is a beautiful book about friendship, loyalty, and living up or down to expectation. I loved Ida B, and this was equally as wonderful. A must read for middle-grade. "
