Amazon bargain purchase.

Cute but simple with alternating chapters between adults and their teenaged kids all mixed up in different permutations of a whirlwind European romance. There's a silly political subplot but mostly it's just a lighthearted romance with a view of the inner monologue and insecurities of all the people involved.

Read in one sitting. Didn't require a lot of concentration. Probably great to read on a flight or by the pool.

This looks really interesting. Told through correspondence, illustrations, newspaper articles, etc.

Born in 1872, Ella Kate was born at a normal size, but soon she began to grow rapidly. In school and in society she was perceived as a freak. At seventeen she was eight feet tall. She agreed to be display when she was eighteen, and for an entire month she remained rigid on the stage where people could gawk at here. But, she made $1,000, which was an incredible amount of money in 1890.

As she grew, both in age and size, she was featured in museum and it was at the age of 22 that she stopped growing. Then she was eight fet, for inches tall, and as the book reports, she wore size 24 shoes. She shared her money with her family. and also built a house with tall rooms and long, high windows. Custom built furniture was built as well.

This is a story of someone who was a giant in stature, and also in spirit. She remembered that her mother told her not to be ashamed, rather she should stand tall.
