Book Feature: The Little Giant of Aberdeen County

The Little Giant of Aberdeen County by Tiffany Baker
Publisher: Grand Central Publishing
Publish Date: January 25, 2010
Trade Paperback, 320 pages

About the Book:
Truly Plaice, an overly large and ungainly girl, is the polar opposite of her sister, Serena Jane, the epitome of feminine perfection. With their parents dead, Truly and Serena Jane are separated: Serena Jane to live a life of privilege as the future May Queen and Truly to live on the outskirts of town, the subject of constant abuse and humiliation. There, while Serena Jane’s beauty proves to be her biggest curse, Truly finds her calling—the ability to heal illness with herbs and naturopathic techniques—and, in reckoning with her demons, the possibility of love in unexpected places.
About the Author:
Tiffany Baker lives in Tiburon, California, with her husband and three children. She was an English major at Denison University, and later earned a graduate degree in creative writing from UC Irvine and a PhD in Victorian literature. She is currently working on her second novel, due out in 2011.

This was my favorite read of July, until I read The Dark Divine.
That just goes to show you, if it's in #2 spot, it's still really great!
