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).

Quotes & Awards

  • “Hannigan’s strengths are in a richly conveyed setting, with much of the novel taking place outdoors, and in her ability to depict a potentially unappealing main character as well as several secondary characters with tremendous compassion. Delly’s profound change in her approach to the world is completely believable, and very touching.”

    Horn Book magazine

  • “Leaves the reader with many thoughts about how we see ourselves, how we think others see us, how we hide within ourselves, what it means to be a ‘hummin bin,’ and the importance of trust and friendship in our lives. Hannigan has given her readers a real ‘surpresent.’”
