About the Author
Mark Peter Hughes was born in Liverpool, England, and grew up in Barrington, Rhode Island. Marks obsession with music has led to many ups and downs. Setbacks include getting ejected from eighth-grade music class for throwing a spitball and the heartbreak of learning that the accordion has no place on a thrash-metal stage. Success came later when Mark fronted an alternative-rock band. He owns a pennywhistle, a broken violin, and a boxful of other musical instruments of mass destruction. Mark now lives and often hums quietly in Massachusetts.
Lemonade Mouth is Mark Peter Hughess second novel. His first, I am the Wallpaper, was a Childrens Book Sense 76 Summer Pick and a New York Public Library Book for the Teen Age.
