About the Book:

Competitive eating vies with family expectations in a funny, heartfelt novel for middle-grade readers by National Book Award winner Pete Hautman.

David can eat an entire sixteen-inch pepperoni pizza in four minutes and thirty-six seconds. Not bad. But he knows he can do better. In fact, he’ll have to do better: he’s going to compete in the Super Pigorino Bowl, the world’s greatest pizza-eating contest, and he has to win it, because he borrowed his mom’s credit card and accidentally spent $2,000 on it. So he really needs that prize money. Like, yesterday. As if training to be a competitive eater weren’t enough, he’s also got to keep an eye on his little brother, Mal (who, if the family believed in labels, would be labeled autistic, but they don’t, so they just label him Mal). And don’t even get started on the new weirdness going on between his two best friends, Cyn and HeyMan. Master talent Pete Hautman has cooked up a rich narrative shot through with equal parts humor and tenderness, and the result is a middle-grade novel too delicious to put down.

About the Author:

Pete Hautman is the author of many books for young adults and adults, including the National Book Award–winning Godless, the Klaatu Diskos trilogy, and Eden West. Pete Hautman divides his time between Wisconsin and Minnesota.

I love the cool, fun cover--maybe it relates to the book's title!! But--ewww--the book is about competitive eating! I'm sure it's better than the area of human existence it describes, because I think competitive eating should be, I don't know, outlawed.

Seems like it would be a great read, not necessarily my favorite cover, but I'm not one to judge a book by its cover.

The cover doesn't really match the synopsis. Maybe I'll understand it after reading this book. The synopsis sounds like this will be one of my favorites to read as I love the promised humor and haven't read a story about a competitive eater before.

I like the cover with the bites taken out of the food. This sounds like a fun story. I want to see just how much David can eat.
