Deli Patterson was trouble. But, her temper is getting the best of her…one more trip to the principal’s office and she will be kicked out of school and break her mother’s heart.

  1. Ugh.. I love this book! I like Delaware Pattison because she is my favorite character. She gets in a lot of trouble without knowing why. I like her no cuss words such as Shikes, Chizzle, and Bawlgrammit. I think everyone should read this book

  2. True (...Sort of ) is fiction but very action packed.This book is about a girl named Delly short for Delaware. She is a troublemaker she takes other peoples things that she doesn't know is theirs. She thought that it was hers to ride in or eat,she lives in her own world. The setting is mostly a tree house. RB,Dallas,Galveston and Tennessee are all her sisters There are more characters but you'll meet them soon. I loved this book ,it was full of suspense and action. It most action packed story,( I think) on the Rhode Island Children's Book Awards list. I would recommend this book to everyone I know who loves books as much as I do. Troubles happening someone goes missing. Lets just say this book insanely awesome!!!!!
