Abstract:

"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 pizza-eating contest, and he has to win it because he borrowed his mom's credit card and accidentally put two thousand dollars on it. So he really needs that pizza money. Like, yesterday. And 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"). Not to mention the new weirdness going on between his two best friends, Cyn and HeyMan. Master talent Pete Hautman has cooked up a rich narrative shot thorugh with equal parts humor and tenderness, and the result is a middle-grade novel too delicious to put down."--Page 2 of cover.
