Melly Mills is very tall. Freakishly impossibly tall. Basketball hoops come up to her hips, and most people are only a bit taller than her knees. She looks down on giraffes, and has to bend down to peek into a second-story window.
Melly’s parents kept her sheltered view in the middle acres of their family farm until they died and Melly found herself alone in a world that knew nothing of her existence. The name of her blog is taken from a newspaper headline from the day she left her farm: “Giant girl rampages through town”.
Melly has been taken in by the Appletons, who own an orchard adjacent to Mills Farm, which makes it convenient for her to continue caring for her beloved cows. She is being tutored by her physician, Dr. Crisp, and expects to attend public school for the first time, starting in the fall.
