Waiting on Wednesday: Tall Story

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme of anticipation hosted by Breaking the Spine

Tall Story by Candy Gourlay

Release Date: February 8, 2011

Andi is short. And she has lots of wishes. She wishes she could play on the school basketball team, she wishes for her own bedroom, but most of all she wishes that her long-lost half-brother, Bernardo, could come and live in London where he belongs.

Then Andi's biggest wish comes true and she's minutes away from becoming someone's little sister. As she waits anxiously for Bernardo to arrive from the Philippines, she hopes he'll turn out to be tall and just as crazy as she is about basketball. When he finally arrives, he's tall all right. Eight feet tall, in fact—plagued by condition called Gigantism and troubled by secrets that he believes led to his phenomenal growth.

-Magical realism! Female basketball player! The Philippines! London! These four things make me eager for this book. Lauren's review practically sent me over the edge ;) The story sounds absolutely charming.

This week what are you waiting on?
