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.
