We've all been there, watching a child throw himself to the floor or scream loud and long enough to wake the dead. If you were lucky, the child was someone else's. If not, you probably wondered what you did to deserve such a terrible child, or what your child did to deserve such a terrible parent. In Taming Your Child's Temper Tantrums, Dr. Victoria McEvoy explains that tantrums are a totally normal--though unfortunate--part of early childhood. Most of the time the behavior is mercifully short-lived. McEvoy helps parents see the tantrum from the child's perspective, offers suggestions for dealing with them, and advice on when to seek professional help. Among her tips: Many tantrums can be headed off before they begin, by meeting your child's need for food, sleep, exercise, attention and control. Don't over-react to early tantrums. If your child learns that you'll cave at the first scream, you're setting yourself up for many more unpleasant afternoons. Be on the lookout for things you may be doing to encourage your child's tantrums. Remember, she is the one throwing the fit, but you've set the stage she's throwing it on. If tantrums continue beyond the third year, get worse, or seem to be unprovoked, it's time to redouble your detective work. With the help of family, friends and professionals you can figure out what's going on with your child.

Celeste Price is an eighth-grade English teacher in suburban Tampa. Shes undeniably attractive. She drives a red Corvette with tinted windows. Her husband, Ford, is rich, square-jawed, and devoted to her. But Celestes devotion lies elsewhere. She has a singular sexual obsession--fourteen-year-old boys. Celeste pursues her craving with sociopathic meticulousness and forethought; her sole purpose in becoming a teacher is to fulfill her passion and provide her access to her compulsion. As the novel opens, fall semester at Jefferson Jr. High is beginning. In mere weeks, Celeste has chosen and lured the lusciously naive Jack Patrick into her web. Jack is enthralled and in awe of his teacher, and, most important, willing to accept Celestes terms for a secret relationship--car rides after school; rendezvous at Jacks house while his single father works late; body-slamming encounters in Celestes empty classroom between periods. Ever mindful of the danger--the perpetual risk of exposure, Jacks fathers own attraction to her, and the ticking clock as Jack leaves innocent boyhood behind--the hyperbolically insatiable Celeste bypasses each hurdle with swift thinking and shameless determination, even when the solutions involve greater misdeeds than the affair itself. In slaking her sexual thirst, Celeste Price is remorseless and deviously free of hesitation, a monstress driven by pure motivation. She deceives everyone, and cares nothing for anyone or anything but her own pleasure. With crackling, rampantly unadulterated prose, Tampa is a grand, uncompromising, seriocomic examination of want and a scorching literary debut.
