Publisher's Summary

What is it like to be a giant? Meet Corinthia Bledsoe, a seven-foot tall high-school junior who can predict the future.

Over seven feet tall and with a newfound ability to sense future events, Corinthia Bledsoe is far more than just another Midwestern high-school junior; she's a force of nature. When she predicts with terrifying accuracy the outcome of a tornado that will hit her high school, leaving a cow standing midcourt in the Lugo Memorial field house, Corinthia finds herself at the epicenter of another kind of storm entirely. And as things get stranger and stranger - both in her small town and her own home - lives start to intersect in ways even Corinthia can't foresee.

Lauren Ezzo Shines as Narrator

I started this book with lots and lots of doubts. I chose this one because it’s a new audiobook release this month for one of my FAVORITE narrators (Lauren Ezzo) AND I was prepping for our interview with her as well.

FUM started out as a dreary, awkward, and darkly deep young adult that turned more into an adult sci-fi drama than I wanted it to.

The characters were richly fascinating, albeit creepy and disturbing.

I’ll be honest, a lot of the plot didn’t really make sense to me. It felt like a bunch of things were thrown into the mix without really flourishing the way I expected them to.

Overall, Lauren Ezzo’s narration was so great that it made me want to listen to this book til the end. I did lose interest as the book was nearing the end, but I got the gist of it and I found myself slightly disappointed in the end.
