What Would Joey Do?

Jack Gantos

Are they flirting or fighting? This is Joey Pigza's question when the fireworks suddenly start to explode between his long-separated mom and dad, whom he's never really had a chance to see together. The more out of control his parents get, the less in control Joey feels and the more he wants to help make things better. But Joey's ailing, tell-it-like-it-is grandmother wants her grandson to see it like it is with his unpredictable parents. Knowing that she is fading fast, she needs Joey to hurry up and show that he can break the Pigza family mold by making a friend in the outside world. The only potential candidate, however, is Olivia Lapp-Joey's blind home schooling partner, who brags that she is "blind as a brat" and gets meaner to Joey the more desperate he gets for her friendship-even if Joey senses there's more to her than meets the eye. In this dazzling conclusion to the Joey Pigza trilogy, Jack Gantos's acclaimed hyperactive hero is discovering that settling down isn't good for anything if he can't find a way to stop the people he cares about from winding him up all over again.
