Figured as much -- AP is still pretty exotic up here, though now we have it if you are willing to go out of your catchment area to certain schools.
No, I had never even heard of Giants in the Earth
, though it sounds suspiciously like Barometer Rising
and Who Has Seen the Wind
, two books my brother loathed with a deep and abiding scorn. I got lucky, never having been assigned either.
