Description
An unusual love story about a little librarian on  Cape Cod and the tallest boy in the world,  The Giant's Houseis the magical first  novel from the author of the 1994 ALA Notable  collectionHere's Your Hat, What's Your Hurry. The year is 1950, and in a small town on Cape  Cod twenty-six-year-old librarian Peggy Cort feels  like love and life have stood her up. Until the  day James Carlson Sweatt--the "over tall"  eleven-year-old boy who's the talk of the  town--walks into her library and changes her life forever.  Two misfits whose lonely paths cross at the  circulation desk, Peggy and James are odd candidates for  friendship, but nevertheless they soon find their  lives entwined in ways that neither one could have  predicted. In James, Peggy discovers the one  person who's ever really understood her, and as he  grows--six foot five at age twelve, then seven feet,  then eight--so does her heart and their most  singular romance.The Giant's House  is an unforgettably tender and quirky novel about  learning to welcome the unexpected miracle, and  about the strength of choosing to love in a world  that gives no promises, and no guarantees.
