When Libby lies to her mama and is caught, she vows never to lie again. So she tells the truth. Ruthie Mae has a hole  in her sock. Willie hasn't done his homework; old Miz Tusselbury's yard looks like a jungle. So if she is honest, why is the whole world mad at her? When Libby gets a taste of her own medicine, will she finally learn the difference between a lie and the honest-to-goodness truth?  (Jeannie Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards)
