The Little Giant of Aberdeen County

LibraryThing book review...
The Little Giant of Aberdeen County by Tiffany Baker

The Little Giant of Aberdeen County is the story of two sisters, Truly and Serena Jane. Serena Jane is the perfect child in every way, beautiful and enchanting. Truly is remarkable both because her mother died during childbirth while having her and because she is extremely large. Their father doesn' t know how to deal with his grief or with two girls, so both are sent to different homes to live. They grow up in very different homes and make very different choices.

This is a charming, magical read. I really liked and felt for Truly, although I didn't always like or understand her choices. (like choosing to live with Dr. Morgan) Towards the end of the book, I loved that Truly gained some power and I really couldn't blame her for using it. This is a fun read with lots of interesting characters.

Julie, we must have similar tastes. I love THE LITTLE GIANT OF ABERDEEN COUNTY and did a review as well. It WAS, as you said, a magical story. I also finished VERY VALENTINE that you are reading now. It was also very good. I love Adriana's description of place especially. Did you know it is the first in a trilogy? I look forward to the next! Your blog looks great..if I had an award, I'd give it:D Bingo
