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 factplagued by condition called Gigantism and troubled by secrets that he believes led to his phenomenal growth.In a novel packed with quirkiness and humor, Gourlay explores a touching sibling relationship and the clash of two very different cultures.From the Hardcover edition.
