The Girl Who Spoke with Giants

A Novel

Twelve-year-old Pamela Manchester is an autistic savant whose reputation for amazing feats of memory and perception is quickly spreading. Large crowds flock to her live performances. YouTube and Facebook fame are gaining momentum.Back home in rural Minnesota, however, the girl has different priorities altogether. If not for her ambitious father, managing her “career,” she would be happy just repeating her forest routines, learning esoteric facts about nature, and playing Minecraft on her Kindle. The more he tries to control her, the more she fights back. This battle of wills seems hopeless until a family of Sasquatch gradually makes its presence known, changing everything—for better and for worse.
