Join the millions of readers who have discovered The Pigman, the beloved bestselling young adult classic from Paul Zindel, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds.

The Pigman is the perfect read for fans of modern classics like The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton and Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher.

When high school sophomores John and Lorraine made a prank phone call to an elderly stranger named Angelo Pignati, what starts as a practical joke quickly turns into a friendship that changes all of their lives forever. But when their friendship ends in tragedy, the only way for John and Lorraine to find peace is to write down their friend's story--the true story of the Pigman.

"Headline news...remarkable...Zindel has written a story that will not be denied." --Publishers Weekly

"An intensely moving story of believably alienated young people." --School Library Journal

Zindel's novel is funny, but has many serious moments. It is a story with original characters and a believable, yet unpredictable, storyline.

sad but attention seeking, this book demands that it be called a work of art. Nothing compares to litterary art.

Think I read this in high school. It seems so much darker now that I'm an adult. I see WHY we read it in high school, but I'm just not a big fan.
