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).

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.
