Andi is mad about basketball but she lives in the wrong country—England, where nobody plays it, and anyway, everyone thinks she’s too small. One day, her mum, who works as a nurse in a London hospital, announces that the son she left behind in the Philippines finally got a visa to come to the UK. Andi is thrilled! It’s been ages since she’s been to the Philippines and seen her brother. And according to her mum, her long-lost brother Bernardo is tall. She can’t wait to play basketball with him! But when Bernardo turns up, he’s not tall—he’s an eight foot tall GIANT.
