Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel

When you live in Helena, Montana and "Sleeping Giant" comes up, you naturally grab the book.  And Sleeping Giants by Sylvain Neuvel is well worth grabbing.

Eleven year old Rose literally falls into a giant hand while riding her bicycle near her home in Deadwood, South Dakota.  Now, 17 years later, she is the head scientist studying the same hand.

Written as a series of debriefings between an unnamed government official and the various scientists and military personnel putting this puzzle together, it's an interesting read from this perspective.  As events unfold and more of the giant is discovered, more questions and unexplained events occur.

Book 1 in the Themis Files series, this is a good summer read.  It will also make you look at our own Sleeping Giant a little bit differently.
