Giant Pumpkin Suite

author: Melanie Heuiser Hill

Twelve-year-old Rose Brutigan has always been different from her twin brother, Thomas. But now that she’s grown seven inches in the last eight months, she towers over him in too many ways. Musically talented Rose is focused on winning the upcoming Bach Cello Suites Competition, while happy-go-lucky Thomas has taken up the challenge of growing a giant pumpkin in the yard of their elderly neighbor, Mr. Pickering. But then a serious accident forces Rose to grow and change in ways she never could have imagined. Along the way there’s tap dancing and classic musicals, mail-order worms, neighborhood-sourced compost, the Minnesota State Fair—and an eclectic cast of characters that readers will fall in love with.

“There’s abundant warmth, humor, and heart in this charmer, and readers will root for both characters and pumpkin. A winning debut.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
