TRUE (…sort of) by Katherine Hannigan

Delly Pattison is always looking for adventure.  She has  a fun, loving family and the most colorful, invented vocabulary ever.  But she also gets into trouble.  A LOT.  When even her mother is about to give up on her, Delly gets some help from her very mature younger brother and a newcomer to town, Ferris Boyd.  Ferris doesn’t talk, and Delly is fascinated enough to stop her troublemaking and befriend Ferris.  Can a troublemaker find the good in herself?  What is Ferris’s secret?  This book is full of believable characters, warm family moments,  and lessons about friendship that make the difficult secret, when it comes out, easier to bear.
