Tall Story

By: Candy Gourlay

Book Talk

Andi is looking forward to her half-brother, Bernardo, finally coming to live with her family. She’s hoping he will love basketball as much as she does. Her mother said he was tall, but she was not prepared for what she saw as her giant of a brother got off the plane. How did he get to be 8 feet tall? Was it a blessing or a curse that made him grow to such a great height? Unfortunately, such greatness comes with a heavy burden to bear. The friends he left behind in the Philippines think Bernardo can work miracles. Was it true? What miracles would he be able to make happen for Andi?
