Truth is the absence of discord, and at this story's beginning, the word is not even in Delly's vocabulary. All she knows is bad, wrong, and trouble. However, with her younger brother's gentle help and Ferris's silent, cautious friendship, Delly begins to blossom with self-control and an awareness that she is quite capable of good, right, and helpfulness. Soon, truth is a haven; it cannot coexist with fear and confusion. A completely enveloping tale that carefully touches sensitive issues with gentle, hopeful resolution. A masterpiece. Best for Middle Grade readers.
Publisher Summary
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

For most of her eleven years, Delly has been in trouble without knowing why, until her little brother, RB, and a strange, silent new friend, Ferris, help her find a way to be good--and happy--again.
