Customer Reviews of Stand Tall

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazingly Swell I have read this several times now ever since it came out and it is still one of my favorite reads. The story is about Tree, a very tall seventh-grader, as he overcomes the divorce of his parents, helping his grandpa, a Vietnam veteran who gets his leg amputated, and the new girl. He finds understanding from these people and embraces his special gift, his height. This book made me a happy customer. It is an easy to read book that I would think could be enjoyed by all ages.
