Overview

Tall, gawky, and twelve, D.C. Blau stumbles into her cousin Becky’s birthday party wearing a neon yellow T-shirt so bright it could burn someone’s eyeballs out. Towering above the boys there and self-conscious about her height, she prefers to think that it’s the boys who are the outliers, that Becky has more “dwarf” friends than Snow White -- but one among them catches her eye, Rob, a definite Bashful.

Strangely, though they’ve never before met, the tall girl and the shy boy take to each other like long lost pals. So begins an unusual tweenage friendship, one that carries the two kids though a year both terrible and wonderful. There’s banter, and fun with fantasy. Ballplayers so huge they’re named after mountains. An island populated with up-chucking vampire birds. Freaky fortunes from a funky fortune-teller lady. A flukey fishing trip, and a rollicking, roller-coaster of a small plane ride. Father’s Day blues. And in the end, a climactic, life-changing event that spirals down from “out of the blue.”
