#unreadshelfproject2020 Love, love, love this book. What a truly amazing story. The characters are great, the story is great, the adventures are wonderful. I had to put this book down to go to work and I thought about it all day. I will be suggesting this title to any kid that comes into the bookstore looking for a new read. AMAZING!!!!!

The inspiring story of the redemptive power of friendship. Loud, brash Delly, who *knows* to her core she is bad meets quiet, sad Ferris and both their lives are changed, for the better. If its true that people can't change, perhaps its only true they can't do it alone. I think we've all had a friend who makes us see the world/ourselves with new eyes. This book made me appreciate all the good friends in my life all over again. Great read, read it in one sitting! ( )

Kirkus Review: Delly, an impulsive middle child loved by her parents and tagalong young brother, meets life on her own terms and with such self-centered focus that she bends language to suit and reflect her. A ride home in Officer Tibbetts’ squad car is a “Dellylivery”; “What the glub?” Delly exclaims, citing her “nocussictionary”; she anticipates “surpresents” especially for her; Ferris’ treehouse is a “hideawaysis.” (An appended glossary—Dellyictionary—offers 40 of these portmanteaux). Brud longs to shoot baskets like Ferris, a girl so silent and thin that both he and Delly think she’s a boy. Ferris fascinates Delly with her solitude and ability to connect with wild creatures and Brud with her miraculous basketball skills. Delly’s teachers, though aware of Ferris’ elective mutism and fear of being touched, don’t question the girl’s safety at home. But Delly notices scars on Ferris’s back and gets a bad feeling about Ferris’ normal-seeming father. There’s a lot going on, and Delly’s quirky language occasionally threatens to obscure the plot. Ferris is rescued, at least temporarily, but young readers may be left wondering whether adults are truly capable of protecting them. ( )

Great story dealing with a multitude of issues. Great character growth. The tone is for younger readers--like 9-11 range. ( )

Are we defined by the labels others assign to us? Does friendship have the power to transform our lives? Hannigan tackles these questions and more in this story. Delly Pattison is strong on creativity, a dangerous thing since the idea of impulse control has never crossed her mind. Constantly being told how bad she is eventually makes for one angry kid, and when she is 11 and resorts to fistfights, she is on the verge of being sent to an alternative school. As she struggles to control her behavior, Delly begins to notice a new classmate. Ferris Boyd doesn’t speak and can’t be touched, yet the two bridge the gap. Trust and friendship follow, and are strong enough to handle crisis when it occurs. Told in carefully crafted language that begs to be read aloud, the story runs the gamut from laugh-out-loud funny to emotionally wrenching. Readers will likely be divided in their response to Delly’s propensity for combining existing words into new ones; a present that’s a surprise, for example, is a “surpresent.” The same may be said of the touches of magical realism that occasionally advance the plot. Even those who quibble with bits and pieces will find meaty themes, a host of fleshed-out characters, and the same storyteller’s ear that created Ida B.
