Summary
Tells the story of Barbara Thorson, an acerbic fifth-grader so consumed with fantasy that she doesn't just tell people that she kills giants with an ancient Norse warhammer - she starts to believe it herself. This book reveals the reasons for Barbara's troubled behavior, as she learns to reconcile her fantasy life with the real world. --
Summary
Barbara pushes away most of the people at school to focus on killing evil monsters in her imagination, hoping to one day save her cancer-stricken mother from death
