A novel my husband read in school and couldn’t stop talking about many years later I had to read The Pigman and I’m absolutely glad I did. Not only is it a fantastic read I feel it gave me even more insight to my awesome husband and the past I was never a part of.

Written from two points of view, a teenage boy and girl, the reader follows their meeting and bonding with a complete stranger and the innocence of once trusting your fellow neighbour. It’s a great feeling to know that there are still good people out there who will open the door to strangers for the mere benefit of an innocent relationship.

This was definitely a novel that sparked mixed reviews but one that I will have my child read when he is older. Paul Zindel surprised me as an author I never heard of and has me hooked on his quick reads.

Thanks for reading,

Sarah Butland
