What is it like to be a giant? Meet Corinthia Bledsoe, a seven-foot tall high-school junior who can predict the future.
Over seven feet tall and with a newfound ability to sense future events, Corinthia Bledsoe is far more than just another Midwestern high-school junior; she’s a force of nature. When she predicts with terrifying accuracy the outcome of a tornado that will hit her high school, leaving a cow standing midcourt in the Lugo Memorial field house, Corinthia finds herself at the epicenter of another kind of storm entirely. And as things get stranger and stranger — both in her small town and her own home — lives start to intersect in ways even Corinthia can’t foresee.
About the Author
Adam Rapp is an acclaimed playwright and the author of several books for young adults, including Punkzilla, a Michael L. Printz Honor Book, and Under the Wolf, Under the Dog, winner of the Schneider Family Book Award. He lives in New York City.
Though opposite in many ways, the two characters share the very real pain of being “different” in an environment where differences are not safe and where adults allow social predation to continue. This book that will appeal to those who appreciate Terry Pratchett’s and Libba Bray’s works. —School Library Journal
Rapp’s knack for chilling realism and John Irvingesque absurdism produces moments of sheer hilarity, sharp insight, and devastating emotion. Readers seeking a dark fairy tale of grotesque, gigantic proportions better buckle up: this is a wild one. —Booklist
