True (. . . Sort Of) is rated 3 out of 5 by 1.

Can friendship save you?

The day Ferris Boyd moves to town, Delly Pattison is sure a special surpresent (a present that is a surprise) is on its way. Instead, Delly ends up in even more trouble than usual.

The Boyds'' arrival in River Bluffs means big changes for Brud Kinney, too. He can''t believe who he''s hanging around with. Ferris Boyd isn''t like anyone Delly or Brud have ever known. Ferris is a mystery and a wonder.

Through friendship, though, Delly, Brud, and Ferris discover truths that will change their lives. And bring them the best surpresent of all.

Includes an all-new afterword featuring a short story, photographs by the author, and more

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A bit of a letdown, but still worth reading. A much darker book than her first one, Ida B, but still written with her trademark gentle prose. Delly Pattison and Ferris Boyd are two characters you won't soon forget. Hannigan has a unique way with language that deserves to be experienced and the ability to express a child's voice. That said, this book didn't uplift me like Ida B and left me wishing for more.

Editorial Reviews

"With playful, alliterative, fun-to-read-aloud language and its fantastical storyline, this winning, 32-chapter novelette recalls the magical whimsy of Roald Dahl." (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))
