I loved that this book was written from Truly's point of view, using language that evokes a magnificent picture in your mind of her being huge and solid and over-sized. This story almost has a feel of being a fairy tale or folk lore - there is Truly who is considered a giant, the beautiful, beauty queen sister, the witch and her potions, Truly's friend Marcus who is tiny, and the evil Doctor Robert Morgan. The subtlety with which Baker weaves all of these characters in her story and gives them all such depth is what makes the story such a joy to read. I was hooked from beginning to end!

Truly is truly bigger than life. She is a legend of sorts in her small town where she hides from their looks, eventually becoming someone they all seek out. This book spoke to me of looking inside of a person and not the outside, of the circle of life and death and how nothing in life is black and white. This is an awesome, wonderful read!

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
