What other readers are saying about this title:
Being thirteen-years-old is no easy task for any average angst-y adolescent, but thirteen is even harder when you’re dorky, overweight Peter Paddington. Peter’s parents want him to be “normal.” He’s supposed to be an athlete, and take shop class, and make friends with other boys his age. But Peter would rather take home-ec—it’s a class where you cook and eat food, after all. Then something very strange happens. Peter’s nipples begin to talk to him. Worse, they threaten to reveal his innermost thoughts and secrets. As he desperately tries to figure out why a part of his own body would turn against him in such a cruel and unusual way, and as he works out the elaborate means he has to go to keep those damn nipples quiet, Peter is forced to confront his convoluted relationships with his family, friends, enemies—and himself. Fruit is a charmingly odd, quirky little coming-of-age tale. It’s the story of a boy and his talking nipples—what more do you need to know? Eat-while-you-read: Starburst, Skittles, or Juicy Fruit gum. Or you could unplug the vending machine and eat an apple.
