Parents Behaving Badly is an uproarious, surprising, and poignant satire of American suburbia and youth sports gone wild. Everyone that has ever been involved with youth sports can relate. Kids, coaches, friends, family - everyone knows 'that guy' or 'that mom. The setting is Little League, but the experiences and issues are universal. Layered beneath the book's laugh out loud action are provocative questions about the what ifs of our adolescence, the lost art of personal interaction in the age of texting and Twitter and Facebook, what constitutes infidelity, and blurring the line between fair play and bad sports. Parents Behaving Badly is a good, fun read that will make you laugh, make you think, and make for conversation in bleachers and on sidelines everywhere.

    " I thought this book was terrible. I found it hard to follow and it is even titled poorly. I thought I would related to the content but it turned out I didn't at all. I guess this book is mainly for people who are very involved in the baseball scene. "

    " This is a fun summer read. If your child has been in Little League, you will enjoy the antics of the parents. A fun look at childrens' sports, parents and the players themselves. Ben and Jili move back to California and find themselves in the middle of a crazy Little League season. "

    " I picked this up as a whim at Borders last year, because the title made me laugh. It was a funny read and the perfect transition book for me after reading the intense Hunger Games series. The book has a very observational tone and takes place over the course of a season of Little League in a fictional California town. In some places, it would have been nice to have a little more depth, but it's just not that kind of book. Once you've accepted that, you can enjoy the ride. "

    " Very enlightening. A little dirty, but I loved the writing style. "
