About the Author:

Peter Marino is an English professor and playwright whose first play has been produced in festivals around the country. He lives with his spouse, G. A. Broadwell, and their two "children" Ofi and Scratchbat(a dog and a bat, but not just any dog and bat) in New York State.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 7-10–In this funny but heart-wrenching story, 15-year-old Tristan spends one week with his college-professor mom and her boyfriend Frank, and the next with his college-professor dad and his girlfriend, and the situation works for everyone. Tristan's excess weight has always bothered him but since both of his parents live with heavy partners, he's been able to deal with it. But all that changes when Frank's daughter moves in. Beautiful, calorie-conscious Kelly turns heads, but her mouth is lethal as she immediately zeroes in on Tristan's weight and twists a knife into the wounds that she inflicts on his self-esteem. Things go from bad to worse as her cruelty, added to the casual torment by other students, finally causes Tristan to recognize that he needs to remove himself from the toxic atmosphere and live exclusively with his dad, and to find coping mechanisms to help him deal with the school atmosphere. The ending is hopeful as the teen regains his humor and discovers how much he enjoys cross-country skiing. A priority purchase for all libraries serving teens.–Susan Riley, Mount Kisco Public Library, NY
