Without actually seeing the book, I originally gave it a number 7 score based on the description, the author, and the fact that it won the Lazarillo prize in 2013.

La mujer más alta del mundo is the story of a girl who, after being made fun of for being the shortest girl of her class, became the tallest woman in the world. 

It’s hard to pinpoint an audience/age group for this story. It starts off as a great talking point for bullying vs. acceptance but quickly loses focus and becomes obtuse.

The book was published in a vertical format to show not only her physical growth but also, as she grows older, how she sees the world from different perspectives and how the world sees her.

The title is somehow puzzling, since you only see the protagonist as a young girl throughout the book.
