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.

In a novel packed with quirkiness and humor, Gourlay explores a touching sibling relationship and the clash of two very different cultures.

    " Sweet story with alternating viewpoints, recurring motifs, and a look at different cultures that doesn't knock you over the head like, "Look, a different culture!" Engaging. "

    " I was lucky enough to read an advance copy of this book. A really touching tale of an 8-foot-tall boy from the Philippines, who comes to London to be reunited with his family. It's sad, funny, dramatic, magical and true-to-life..what a debut! "
