9781475247077: Melonhead

Sidney T. Mellon, Junior's head is round and much too large for his pencil thin body. A cantaloupe comes to mind. So does the name, Melonhead. What chance does he have, looking like this and yo-yoing between divorced parents who aren't up to the job? No wonder he gets on a bus and heads for New York City, "As far away as he could get." So begins a journey of self-discovery that takes him from Seattle to Los Angeles to New York, to a small town in Rhode Island where he confronts his grandmother, who wants nothing to do with him. All Sidney wants is a safe place to be. This was my first novel for young readers. It was published in hardcover by Farrar, Straus & Giroux in 2002. The paperback and ebook versions are published by the author.

From the Author:

This is the paperback edition of Melonhead, which was published in hardcover in 2002 and is now out of print.  I've brought it back on my own.  I thought it would be a good idea to make it available at a reasonable price.  You can read reviews by clicking on the hardcover version. (The Kindle version will be available soon.)  This was my first novel for young readers.  I'm still writing them - five more published since then.  A new one to come later this year.

About the Author:

Michael de Guzman worked for over twenty years as a scriptwriter of television movies; Caroline?, his teleplay of E. L. Konigsburg's Father's Arcane Daughter, was nominated for an Emmy in 1990. Melonhead is his first novel for children. He lives in Seattle, Washington.
