BOOK: The Pigman by Paul Zindel

Another read for the Banned Book Challenge, (I'm trying to get mostly done by the end of the March Break) this was a young adult novel, very nicely done. Two teenagers on the fringe of society, with difficult homelives, make friends with an elderly neighbour. John and Lorraine takes turns telling their story about the life and death of the Pigman, Mr Pignati. Poignant story, very good read.

I remember reading and loving this for highschool or juniour high (obviously it wasn't banned there). We took a lot of ideas from it that would probably give others justification to ban it. Still, I don't think it should be banned. There's a good message at the end.

-drinking in the cemetary
- phone prank marathons
-etc

(oh what fun)
