Publisher's Summary

National Book Award finalist.

The year is 1950, and in a small town on Cape Cod, 26-year-old librarian Peggy Cort feels like love and life have stood her up. Until the day James Carlson Sweatt - the "over-tall" 11-year-old boy who's the talk of the town - walks into her library and changes her life.

Two misfits whose lonely paths cross at the circulation desk, Peggy and James are odd candidates for friendship, but nevertheless, they find their lives intertwined in ways neither one could have predicted. And as James grows - six-foot-five at age 12, then seven feet, then eight - so does Peggy's heart and their most singular romance.

This production includes a bonus excerpt from Elizabeth McCracken’s next audiobook, Bowlaway.

Book took a while

I almost put this book down several times very slow sometimes boring. Eventually I finished and was glad I did. Was endearing.
