Be careful what you wish for . . .
Andi is short. And she has lots of wishes. She wishes she could play on the school basketball team, she wishes for her own bedroom, but most of all she wishes that her long lost half brother, Bernardo, could come and live in London, where he belongs.
Then Andi's biggest wish comes true and she's minutes away from becoming someone's little sister. As she waits anxiously for Bernardo to arrive from the Philippines, she hopes he'll turn out to be tall and just as mad as she is about basketball. When he finally arrives, he's tall all right. But he's not just tall ... he's a GIANT.
In a novel packed with humour and quirkiness, Gourlay explores a touching sibling relationship and the clash of two very different cultures.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Gourlay spins slender threads of wishes and prayers, magic and miracles, desires and redemption and weaves together an impressively sweet and rich tale - Kirkus

I enjoyed Candy Gourlay's Tall Story - Observer

This is a story that is funny, sad and magical. I thought the author chose a good subject to write about because she wrote about very real emotions. She also added a bit of imagination which made it very interesting. The main characters tell the story in alternate chapters. I would recommend this book - pure brilliant! - Teen Titles

“Brilliant, tender story telling”
