Book - Child
"For sophomores John and Lorraine, the world feels meaningless; nothing is important. They certainly can never please their parents and school is a chore. To pass the time, they play pranks on unsuspecting people. It's during one of these pranks that they meet the 'Pigman'--a fat balding old man with a zany smile plastered over his face. In spite of themselves, John and Lorraine soon find that they're caught up in Mr. Pignatis zest for life. In fact, they become so involved that they begin to destroy the only corner of the world thats ever mattered to them. Orignially published in 1968, this novel by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Paul Zindel still sings with sharp emotion as John and Lorraine come to realize that 'Our life would be what we made of it--nothing more, nothing less."
