Nick Vargas and his stepsister Laurie have a big problem. A REALLY big problem. Giants are starting to wake up around their suburban Florida home--and only they (plus an elderly giant-killer called Noseeum Jack) can see what's happening.
They're the only ones who might have a chance of stopping the giants. Unless they can figure out something fast, their whole town might be wrecked--with the whole state of Florida following soon after.From official release/information:
Product Description: Talk about out of the frying pan, into the fire! I was pretty sure that my freaky stepsister and that freaky field guide of hers would ruin my life. But now it looks like they're going to ruin all of Florida, too! Okay, maybe that's not fair. Maybe all these stupid giants would be waking up anyway, but if it wasn't for her and that book, I'd be home playing video games and this would be someone else's giant problem!
