Read full description of the books:
Chris is fifteen, which isn’t easy for anyone, and it’s particularly tough when your father isn’t around and your mother is a flaky nurse with a light shoplifting problem. Things might be simpler if they had a regular apartment, but Chris’s mom is a live-in nurse which means Chris has to live wherever she works, and things are about to get even tougher.
The reason is Lloyd, a brutish drunk, who has just become Chris’s roommate. As the walls close in and the tension rises, Chris can’t be sure if Lloyd is torturing him, or trying to teach him how to be a man.

Read information about the authorPaul Zindel was an American author, playwright and educator.
In 1964, he wrote The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-in-the-Moon Marigolds, his first and most successful play. The play ran off-Broadway in 1970, and on Broadway in 1971. It won the 1971 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It was also made into a 1972 movie by 20th Century Fox. Charlotte Zolotow, then a vice-president at Harper & Row (now Harper-Collins) contacted him to writing for her book label. Zindel wrote 39 books, all of them aimed at children or young adults. Many of these were set in his home town of Staten Island, New York. They tended to be semi-autobiographical, focusing on teenage misfits with abusive or neglectful parents. Despite the often dark subject matter of his books, which deal with loneliness, loss, and the effects of abuse, they are also filled with humor. Many of his novels have wacky titles, such as My Darling, My Hamburger, or Confessions of A Teenage Baboon.
The Pigman, first published in 1968, is widely taught in American schools, and also made it on to the list of most frequently banned books in America in the 1990s, because of what some deem offensive language.
