MMGG Book 4: True (...Sort Of) by Katherine Hannigan

From Goodreads:

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).

Why it's MIGHTY:

This book, like Hannigan's Ida B, has a mighty amount of voice. This book is so funny and clever and chock full of kid-size adventure. But it's the characters that will grab hold of you and make you want to follow them to the very last page.


  1. This has been on my list for awhile. Thanks for the post!

  2. I have been wanting to read this ever since reading Ida B, but keep ending up with something else at the library.

  3. Okay, I'm voting here for my #1 (following your blog)

  4. And for my #2 (following you on Twitter - does it count that I already did?)

  5. I haven't read either of Katherine Hannigan's books. I should probably remedy that...
