“Truly Plaice is definitely larger-than-life -- in body and in her personality. Motherless from birth, with a perfect sister, Truly's life is mostly a disaster. Almost like a fairy tale, this book has it all -- giants; wicked (sort of) stepmothers; of course, and magic. How Truly makes sense of her life and finds a place in a world that just doesn't seem to have room for her makes for one splendid book.”
