With an original story and wholly-realized characters, this novel shines. Truly Plaice (the giant of the title) is an unsettling mix of martyr, saint, and witch. She navigates life from her less-than-perfect body, using her ancestors' knowledge of magic as she sees fit. Truly is a one-of-a-kind heroine that will stay with you long after you close this astonishing novel. An amazing feat for a first time novelist. Recommended By Dianah H., Powells.com
