By Adam Rapp

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.

  • Fans of acclaimed playwright and Printz honor-winning author Adam Rapp's will clamor for his gripping account of a teen with gigantism and supernatural powers.
  • Rapp’s biting observations on how the acceptable and expected conflict with reality generates a layered commentary on what it is that makes us outstanding individuals.
  • Readers who enjoy a less gritty story will be mesmerized by this tale of a Midwestern teenager who finds herself tested at the epicenter of personal, societal, and literal storms.
