Must Read Monday: Tall Story by Candy Gourlay

Here's a meme that's quite fun and clever .. Must Read Monday by Fans of Fiction. Go HERE to join the fun.  ~Woohoo!! I'm last week's winner!  My acrostic of "Push" by Sapphire is featured there. :)

The goal of this meme is to find those books others are excited about to add to your To Be Read list.
Instead of answering a question, you are basically creating intrigue for other hoppers. What makes your book so swoon-worthy? What do you absolutely have to mention so they'll read it?
On your post, you'll make an acrostic puzzle (think of it as an overview/book blurb type of thing).
When you leave comments on other posts, be sure to mention whether you're adding that book to your TBR pile, and what part convinced you to do so.
It's all about powers of persuasion, people:) You might have to think a little, but channel that inner-creative goddess (or god)

This week's topic: Favorite self-published book (or, if you don't have one, a book that is underpublicized that more people should know about).  I chose:  "Tall Story" by Candy Gourlay.  It's not self published so I'm going with the alternate.  Anyway, it's a young reader book that impressed me and hit home.  Loved it!
(Go HERE for blurb and my review)

Thirteen year old Andi was in for
A big or shall I say, a tall surprise.
Little did she know that her half brother will be sporting a
Lengthy eight feet tall

Stature! But it's Bernardo's big innocent heart that makes this story great.
Tales of culture shock, close-knit family relationships, and faith.
Overall showcasing dichotomies .. need vs want, superstition vs science,
Real vs magic, and of course, short vs tall.
Your heart will be warmed and served a bit of Philippine culture as well.

  1. This one's a great pick! Haven't heard of it before, but it does sound heart-warming. I don't know a whole lot about the Filipino culture, but I do love lumpia! Thanks for sharing, Jinky! The real vs. magic part makes me curious.
