Another excellent book from Sarah Addison Allen - she's one of my favorite contemporary authors and I'm always waiting eagerly for her next book. I love the blend of emotion, romance and the touch of magic in all of her books. ( )

Story centers on a young teen sent to live with her giant grandfather (no, really, he's 8ft tall) in a small town filled with quirky, unexplainable happenings (ghost lights at night). While in town, she meets a strange boy, and an attraction occurs, one forbidden by both families. But why? Who is this strange boy, and what secrets to her past does he hold. An intriguing, clean romance for adults with YA appeal. ( )

A wonderful read full of interesting characters that I'm going to be thinking about for awhile. ( )

more supernatural than her other books, and yet very simple and charming....I like it!

It was alright. The relationship storylines were decent, but the supernatural stuff wasn't written very well--it was kind of silly, really. I'm all for suspending disbelief, but the author has to *try.*

I'd give Allen another shot, as long as she left that sort of thing out. ( )

To the memory of famous gentle giant Robert Pershing Wadlow (1918-1940). At the time of his death at age twenty-two, he was eight feet eleven inches tall - a world record that has never been broken.

Book description
Emily Benedict came to Mullaby, North Carolina, hoping to solve at least some of the riddles surrounding her mother's life. But the moment Emily enters the house where her mother grew up and meets the grandfather she never knew, she realises that mysteries aren't solved in Mullaby, they're a way of life. Here are rooms where the wallpaper changes to suit your mood. Unexplained lights skip across the yard at midnight. And a neighbour, Julia Winterson, bakes hope in the form of cakes, offering them to satisfy the town's sweet tooth - but also in the hope of rekindling a love she fears might be lost forever. Can a hummingbird cake really bring back a lost love? Is there really a ghost dancing in Emily's backyard? The answers are never what you expect. But in this town of lovable misfits, the unexpected fits right in.
Haiku summary
