Reading Group Guide

The year is 1950. Peggy Cort, a librarian in a small Cape Cod town, is 26 and has begun to fear that she will live her life without ever experiencing love's transforming power. Until she meets James, 11 years old, six foot four, and still growing. Quietly heroic about his predicament, James checks out books on conjuring and gigantism, and they soon find their lives entwined in ways that neither of them could have predicted. In James, Peggy discovers the one person suited to encompass her love, and as he grows—six foot five at age 12, then seven feet, then eight—so does her heart and their most singular romance. This stunning first novel was a finalist for a National Book Award in Fiction in 1996.

I felt like this book got in my head and it was reflected on the page. The characters were amazing and touching, I made friends with them and was sad when it all ended. I bought 6 copies of this book and tell people - "You want to understand how my mind works - read this book!" I think it is an all around fantastic book!
