Tree, a six-foot-three-inch twelve-year-old, copes with his parents’ recent divorce and his failure as an athlete by helping his grandfather, a Vietnam vet and recent amputee, and Sophie, a new girl at school. Newbery Honor-winning author Joan Bauer’s story, packed with memorable characters and her trademark humor, is about finding purpose in tough times. And it’s about Tree’s giant heart, not his giant size, making him a hero.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Sarah Zimmer | 2/20/2014

    " This book is about Tree, the tallest 7th grader in his class. The story talks about his coping with his parent's divorce and the close relationship he is forming with his grandfather, a Vietnam veteran. This book is great to read to children if their parents are divorcing or if they have a special relationship with their grandparents. "

    " I think this book was okay. It is about a kid named Tree who lives with his father and grandfather because his parents got divorced. Tree has two older brothers who go to college. Tree was nicknamed "Tree" in the fourth grade because of how tall he was. Tree doesn't have many friends, his best friend is his grandfather, who got injured during the Vietnam war and had to get his leg amputated. Tree's brothers basically over shine him because they are both good at sports. Tree helps his grandfather because of his injury and his grandfather helps him get more confidence. "

    " Another Joan Bauer book and elective read. This book focused around Protagonist "Tree," an exceptionally tall and caring young boy who struggles through his parents' divorce, being tall, helping his invalid grandfather, and dealing with bullies. Tree is deeply caring and sweet, insecure about his height, and a nice boy. It does seem like his character is a tiny bit contrived, but still cute. I think this book targets a more middle school age audience, and so it was quick, but not especially compelling. It was forgettable, but fine. "
