True (…sort of) by Katherine Hannigan

9780061968730 Delaware Pattison is a stubbornly charismatic 10-year-old girl, but her small town definitely thinks otherwise of the cinnamon curls and beaming smile. Delly? She is trouble, says the local grocery store manager. She stole my boat for a ride!, cries another man. None can realize that Delly doesn’t mean to be trouble- it’s all fun’s fault…Until Ferris Boyd. Unable to speak or be touched for an unknown reason, it takes a secretive and lonesome child to become Delly’s one and only friend. Desperate to preserve their quiet friendship (considering she does all of the talking) Delly opens the door to the healing, trouble-less life of friendship and true respect.
