Quick! What’s big, hilarious and takes thirty-five years to make? No, not that hairy mole on your neck. I’m talking about my very first novel, which I ended up rewriting about a dozen times over the years and will now be my sixth book out in the world. The story is about two ordinary kids, one with parents (and siblings) that are too tame. The other with parents (and siblings) that are too wild. If you’re looking for an all-round fun, heart-warming read, this book is for you.
Here’s the description from the back:
Brian McSpadden is always hungry. Does he have a disease? Worms? Does it have something to do with his being adopted? He spends his days at his crazy friend Danny’s house, hoping for snacks, but nothing seems to fill the void.
Then Brian receives a mysterious birthday card that says, Free Pizza. He soon discovers the card has nothing to do with food and everything to do with the big questions in his life: where did I come from, why did my mother give me up and is there anyone out there who will like me the way I am?
